Can you believe most of us are headed back to school? I can not! Where did the summer go??? To me, it seems like every year the summer goes quicker and quicker. I think it is because our family stays so busy that we do not get the chance to just sit back and enjoy it as we would like!
Well now that it is back to school it is time to start thinking about how to feed those hungry kiddos. That can be an adventure in itself! I know my kids are always looking for something to satisfy them as soon as they come through the front door.

Easy Pepperoni Pizza Dip Tips:
- make sure your cream cheese is room temperature. It can be tricky spreading it over your dish if it is still cold.
- make sure you have a full cup of chopped pepperoni. You really want to get the full flavor in each bite!
- make sure you spread your tomato sauce evenly over your cream cheese.
- you really can add as much green onion as you would like! I ended up just chopping up a lot more and topping it on the final product.
- you can definitely serve this with anything you’d like. I used homemade tortillas chips, crackers and celery. (All equally good!)
