24 ounces shredded mozzarella

1 pound cream cheese, softened

7 tablespoons EVOO 

2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried oregano

6 ounces tomato sauce

4 ounces pepperoni, sliced thin

Pitas, cut into points, lightly toasted
