I have another delicious dip recipe that will be perfect for a Super Bowl party!

This pizza dip is so good, nobody will even know it is Weight Watchers friendly. I like that you can also serve it with baked tortilla chips and Tostidos. Both taste great with this dip.

If you want to keep it low in carbs you could even eat this with celery sticks.

What inspired me to make this dip is one of my favorite dips of all time. I’m not sure if it has a name, but it’s cream cheese, a can of chili and cheddar cheese. That’s it!

It’s probably the easiest dip you can ever make. I don’t usually eat canned chili, but I love it with that dip.

The bottom layer of this pizza dip is also cream cheese, but I used reduced-fat cream cheese. I added oregano and garlic powder to it. I think that gave it a bit of a “pizza” taste.

The next layer is pizza sauce. I only used a 1/2 cup, which is 2 Freestyle points.

I sprinkled one tablespoon of Parmesan cheese onto the sauce, then added the part-skim mozzarella cheese.

I used turkey pepperoni instead of regular pepperoni because they are much lower in points. Fun fact, my daughter actually prefers turkey pepperoni now. That’s really good considering when I first bought them she didn’t want to even try them.

I cut each slice of pepperoni into four pieces. That made them bite size and it helped to cover most of the dip.

The last step is to bake the dip for 25 minutes or until the shredded cheese is melted.

This is a great dip to take to a party! Simply prepare it at home, then bake it when you get to your destination.
