Pepperoni Pizza Spread

Are you getting ready for a Super Bowl party? This will sure to please the guys. It tastes like homemade pizza without the mess of stretching out the dough! And the aroma of it in the oven is wonderful. You can add as many of the "topping" ingredients as you want. I tried some carmelized onions in it one time...very good. To make it a bit healthier, try using Hormel turkey pepperoni. You cannot tell the difference from the real thing.
Serve with breadsticks or crusty bread.

Pepperoni Pizza Spread
2 cups (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
1-cup mayonnaise
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1 small jar sliced mushrooms, drained
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped green pepper
1 can (6 oz) ripe black olives, drained and chopped (optional)
Crackers or breadsticks

In a large bowl, combine mozzarella, cheddar, mayonnaise, pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, green pepper and olives. Transfer to an 11x7-baking dish. (I cut all ingredients in ½ and make it in a deep-dish pie plate for a smaller crowd.) Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until edges are bubbly and lightly browned. Serve warm with crackers or breadsticks.
IMPORTANT: Do not substitute reduced fat or fat free mayonnaise for regular mayonnaise in this recipe.
