Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Make the dip: In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, ½ cup (55 g) mozzarella, Parmesan, and lemon juice. Mix with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Stir in the salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and oregano.
  3. Transfer the cream cheese mixture to a 9-inch (22 cm) pie dish and spread evenly. Top with the tomato sauce, then the remaining 2 cups (100 G) of mozzarella cheese. Finish with the pepperoni.

  5. Bake the dip for 18–20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  6. While the dip bakes, make the garlic knots: Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Unroll the pizza dough on a flat surface. Cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise 12 times so you have 24 small strips. Cover with a damp kitchen towel to keep from rising.

  11. Bake the garlic knots for 10–12 minutes, until puffed and golden.
  12. Serve the garlic knots warm with the pepperoni dip.
  13. Enjoy!
