Pizza Dip and War Eagle

Finally, college football is here. I happen to be in Charlotte visiting my daughter and playing with a sweet little toddler. They had a wedding to attend on Saturday and I was on babysitting patrol. Two of my children graduated from Auburn. We fell in love with the college, the traditions, the quaint town of Auburn, and especially Auburn football while they were students. I love football Saturdays and it is a great excuse to prepare yummy snacks that tempt even the healthiest eaters.

A little of Saturday mornings conversation:

Daughter: What time is the game?
Son in law: I'm not sure, why?
Daughter: I'd hate for us to be late to the wedding, especially since you are the best man, because it is at the same time as the game.

No they didn't miss the wedding, but, there was a minute of hesitation.

We did fix my daughter's favorite Pizza Dip to enjoy during the first quarter.
Pizza Dip

12 ounces of whipped cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 jar of pizza sauce
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
pepperoni's quartered -  put as few or as many as you prefer
2 cups Mozzarella cheese- shredded

Mix cream cheese and sour cream with Italian seasonings.

If you use the whipped cream cheese, you can mix with a spoon - no need to get out the mixer or even a whisk.
Spread in a 9x13 inch pan.
We like a thin layer of dip. If you prefer a thicker dip, use a pie pan or 8X8 inch square pan.
Spread pizza sauce evenly over the cream cheese mixture
Top with pepperoni.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on the top and bake an additional 10 minutes until cheese is melted.
Enjoy during the game while cheering for your favorite team.
