Sausage and Black Olive Pizza Dip


Did you see the latest post about healthy snacks for little athletes? If not, swing by here and give it a read through. One part that really caught my attention is using olives to re-hydrate instead of sports drinks. Which got me thinking, because among other things, I love olives! So, when I found this recipe for Sausage and Black Olive Pizza Dip, found on, I couldn’t pass on sharing another way to savor one of my favorite fruits (yes, they are fruits.)
And now, for the good stuff:
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ cup prepared pizza sauce (I used Classico)
  • 12 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 12 oz Italian sausage (hot or mild), crumbled, cooked and drained
  • 4 oz sliced black olives, drained
  • 1-2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
  2. Spread it in the bottom of a 7X11 pan.
  3. Top with pizza sauce and then sliced mozzarella.
  4. Sprinkle with cooked sausage, black olives and green onions.
  5. Top with Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  7. Serve hot with chips.
