This is a great time of year, baseball season opens, the NCAA Basketball Tournament finals take place and spring weather has arrived at our doorstop. We are more likely to have a friends and family over the house and this dish is great to serve. It has all the great ingredients of pizza without the boredom of ordering another pizza that sits and gets cold within minutes of arriving at the house.

Eva from Jamesburg sent me this interesting dip it's quick and easy that's great for your weekend parties or perfect for serving during some exciting playoff games.

Eva says serve this tasty dip with vegetables and chips. I also recommend serving bagel chips or those toast rounds with this dish. Enjoy the flavors of pizza with every bite. Thanks Eva!
