Pizza Dip & Bacon Bread Sticks
8 oz. room temperature cream cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup of marinara sauce
1 cup julienned pepperoni slices
1/2 cup chopped white onion

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients for the first layer in a bowl and spread evenly into a 9 inch pie plate. Add strips of pepperoni to a cold skillet and cook over medium heat. Take out and place on paper towels to drain the grease. Add chopped mushrooms and onion to a skillet and cook over medium heat until soft. Add a pinch of salt to season. Spread marinara sauces over the bottom cheesy layer. Add pepperoni, mushrooms, and onions on top. Top with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices. Place pie plate on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes and then broil for 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese a little bit. Sprinkle with chopped basil. Serve with garlic toast, bagel chips or pita chips.
