Instructions

Chunky Tomato Sauce:

  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add the tomato, tomato paste, Italian herb seasoning, sugar, salt, and pepper, and cook (uncovered) until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently and using a wooden spoon to break up the tomato pieces a bit.
  • Set aside.

Pizza Dip:

  • Preheat oven to 400F; grease the bottom and sides of an 8 by 8-inch square casserole dish or a 9-inch pie pan with butter.
  • Mix together the cream cheese, ricotta, half the mozzarella (reserving the remaining half to sprinkle on top), Italian herb seasoning, salt, and garlic powder.
  • Spread in the prepared dish, then spread the Chunky Tomato Sauce on top.
  • Sprinkle on the remaining half of the mozzarella.
  • Place the dish onto a foil-lined baking sheet and bake (uncovered) until the cheese is warm throughout, bubbling, and golden brown in places, about 25 to 30 minutes.

To Serve:

  • Sprinkle on the basil or parsley, if using.
  • Serve warm with crackers or bread.
