Margherita Pizza Dip

This is a dip or pizza , you have to decide. Because its taste like a pizza , acts like a dip so what not to love? I didn't had fresh basil so I used dried one but if you can find fresh please use it and it will make this dip more yummier. Its nothing just put the ingredients in dish and baked it and enjoy with any crusty bread, breadsticks, bagel chips. We had it with bagel chips.

Ingredients :

8 oz. Ricotta
8 oz. Italian blend grated cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
fresh garlic and jalapenos to taste
1 cup bottle marinara sauce
4 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
fresh basil for topping or dried one
for serving , bread sticks, bagel chips, fresh loaf.


Preheat oven to 400F.
Stir together ricotta, Italian and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. season with salt and pepper and chopped garlic and jalapenos.
Evenly spread cheese mixture in a deep dish pie plate.
Spoon sauce over cheese. Leaving a clean border around edge.
We have best marinara sauces in the grocery stores so I don't bother to make home made but if you prefer home made , by all means use it.
Top with mozzarella slices.
Bake about 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
Top with basil or dried herbs and serve with bread sticks for dipping.
