Pizza Dip

Super bowl snacks are on my mind and what could be better than pizza in dipping form.  Many of the ingredients needed are pantry staples so it's simple to whip up in a flash.  I think this recipe is perfect for a house full of guests-it's easy and so totally addicting.  So whether your cheering for the Patriots, Seahawks or like me look forward to the commercials and half time show-this dip is the real winner!
