From Paula's Best Dishes Episode: Cravin' Italian
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, divided
1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup Italian sausage
1/2 cup chopped Canadian bacon
1/2 cup chopped pepperoni
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

Pizza Crust Dippers
2 (12.8 ounce) cans refrigerated pizza crust dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon grated Romano
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
On a clean, flat surface, unroll the dough. Brush the dough evenly with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with cheese (I also sprinkled with Italian seasoning). Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 2 by 3-inch rectangles (I cut mine into smaller, 1 by 2-inch rectangles). Place on prepared baking sheets. Bake until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes.
