With the b-ball action heating up, it’s the perfect time to offer guests goodness-from-the-oven appetizers & snacks. Marinara madness continues with the Ultimate Supreme Pizza Dip & while preparing warm dips can be a little tricky just keep a few key points in mind. Start with a moderate oven temperature. This will allow the mixture to heat through to the center more slowly & help the texture remain nice & creamy. For a golden brown surface, bake the dip in a pan that is labeled broiler-safe. You can safely use a cast iron skillet under the broiler up to 500 degrees for a minute or so at the end of the bake time. Accompany with a DIY custom craft filled with hoops charm. Three-Point Swoosh Sacks complete the table that’s guaranteed to win a spot in the sweet sixteen.

Microwave the cream cheese on High in a large glass bowl for 15 to 20 seconds to soften quickly & save time on clean up.

1/2 lb ground beef
1 cup marinara sauce
1 {8-oz} package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup freshly grated, finely shredded Parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
7 Pepperoni slices
1/4 cup black olives
1/4 cup shaved red onion
Fresh basil & crushed red pepper flakes
Crostini toasts

one
Brown the ground beef in a small non-stick skillet until no longer pink. Drain.
Set aside 1/3 cup beef. Stir together the remaining beef & the marinara sauce. Set aside.

two
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the cream cheese, the mayonnaise, the Parmesan & the garlic in a large bowl.
Spoon into a lightly greased 8-inch cast iron skillet.
Top with the marinara mixture. Sprinkle with the Italian cheese blend. 
Arrange the reserved beef, the pepperoni, the black olives & the red onion over the cheese.

three
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until warm in the center & the cheese is melted.
Top with fresh basil & crushed red pepper. Serve with crostini toasts.

And One…

Basil is a very delicate fresh herb. Add to the dip just before serving for a bright pop of flavor. However as the dip stands, you may notice the color to change. This is normal & will still taste delicious all the same.
