New Year's Eve Countdown Pizza Dip

December 29, 2016

It is t-minus 2 days until 2017 arrives and we all start our New Year's resolutions which usually include better eating habits.  This countdown pizza dip clock is a delicious send off to your indulgent past.  Layers of cream cheese and marinara create a bubbly sauce studded with smoky bacon and meaty pepperoni.  Balls of cooked pizza dough provide the perfect accompaniment.  I like to brush mine with butter and season with garlic.  This quick and easy appetizer is a tasty way to ring in the new year.
