  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  2. Pour the marinara sauce into the bottom of a 3 1/2 quart baking dish or 12-inch skillet. Evenly dollop the prepared cream cheese mixture on top of the marinara sauce. Next, layer on the pepperoni slices, saving a few to decorate the top with at the end.
  3. Evenly spread the shredded cheese over the top, top with the additional pepperoni slices and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  4. Serve immediately with garlic bread/crostini, breadsticks or baguette slices. Enjoy!
