Why does life have to be so complicated? I mean, why do I have to punch in my 335-digit account number only to have the service rep ask me to repeat said account number when she gets on the line? Hmm?

Things like this always baffle me. It’s why we need the simplicity of a thing like Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip in our lives. At least that’s my story…and I’m sticking to it!

Have you ever thought about the word Dip? I’m not saying you should, but then again, it is an interesting word.

If your husband does that to you, it’s kind of romantic. Unless he drops you, which is no fun at all.

If you’re around someone acting like one, it can be a drag.

Your energy can take one in the afternoon, if you don’t eat right.

If you’re skinny, it’s fun to take one in a body of water. Oh, who am I kidding, it’s fun whether you’re skinny or not!

When it’s prepared right, they can be mighty, mighty delicious.

Yep. Dip is definitely an interesting word.

The ingredients for this Vegan Pepperoni Pizza Dip include vegan mozzarella, vegan cream cheese, vegan pepperoni, marina sauce, and oregano.

How to Make Vegan Pizza Dip

It’s so easy to make this simple vegan pizza dip recipe. Begin by spreading softened vegan cream cheese in the bottom of a pie pan, spreading it across the bottom to create a nice, even base layer.

You can buy it or make homemade vegan cream cheese for this recipe.

Next, spread the oregano leaves (or sprinkle dried oregano) over the top of the vegan cream cheese.

That’s right. In the dead of winter I happen to have fresh oregano leaves. That’s because I have a little oregano plant growing in the house. Thanks to Shawn’s mom, Diane, I actually haven’t killed it yet.

I’m pretty proud of myself for that. Come to find out, plants like water. Go figure!
