Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza Dip

Okay, Okay, this isn't a D.O. recipe.  But it is still for the campsite and probably would work in a Dutch Oven so I thought I'd share it anyway.

This dip is great served with Ritz or other buttery type crackers (heck could be good with any pretzels or any type of crackers- Triscuit, Club, Townhouse, etc.).  This dip was a life saver- it kept the hungry kiddos at our campground from whining too much.

Campfire Pizza Dip
Cast Iron Skillet

1 8-ounce package cream cheese (we use the 1/3 fat kind)
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
1/2 of a 8-ounce jar pizza sauce
1 -2 cups mozzarella cheese

Set the cream cheese out to soften enough that you can blend in the Italian Seasoning.  Once mixed, spread into an 8" cast iron skillet.  Top with pizza sauce and then mozzarella.  Heat over the campfire or a camp-stove until the mozzarella is melted (we covered our pan with foil to keep heat in, if you have a lid use that instead).

While snacking away, we thought that the following things would be quite tasty to be added in as a layer to the dip.  When you give them a try, let me know how they taste:

Finely diced pepperoni or Canadian bacon
Some ground beef or Italian sausage
Diced peppers
Diced onions
Diced mushrooms
Diced tomatoes
Black olives
