Pepperoni Pizza Spread

When I need to bring a hot appetizer to a potluck, I almost always bring Pepperoni Pizza Spread.


It's absolutely delicious when it's hot and bubbly, but still amazing 30 minutes later (unlike some appetizers).  I like to spread it on Carr's Table Water Crackers.  It's also great on bread. 

I tore the recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Spread out of Taste of Home magazine years ago.  But as I've mentioned many times, I am incapable of following a recipe as written.  Here's my version:

Pepperoni Pizza Spread

       2 c. mozarella cheese, shredded            6 oz. black olives, sliced
       1 1/2 c. colby-jack cheese, shredded     1 small green bell pepper, chopped
       3/4 c. mayonnaise                                 3 mushrooms, chopped
       about 15 pepperonis, chopped

Combine ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.  Transfer to a 1.5 quart baking dish.  Bake uncovered at 350° for about 25 minutes.  The edges will be lightly browned and bubbly.  Serve with crackers or bread.
