Pizza Dip

Football season is now in week two and before the novelty wears off, it's time to throw a party. Here's a great crock-pot dip that's easy to make and a great variation on the usual cardboard pizza you get from the delivery boy. Start this in the morning when the pre-game festivities begin and it will be ready by half-time.

1 pound lean ground beef
2 cups pizza sauce
8 ounces grated cheddar cheese
8 ounces grated Mozzarella
1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried sweet basil
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Parmesan cheese, optional


Brown ground beef well; drain off fat. Combine ground beef with all other ingredients in the slow cooker or crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 hours.
If desired, sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
