  • 500g cream cheese softened
  • 250g sour cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 400g jar pasta sauce
  • 2 cup pizza cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 50g Hellers garlic and paprika salami chopped into quarters
  • 1/2 cup runny honey
  • 6 shots of tabasco sauce
  • Fresh basil leaves chopped

  3. Pour the pizza sauce over the creamy base evenly
  4. Sprinkle evenly with pizza cheese and parmesan
  5. Cover the top with cut slices of salami and then place in the oven for 15 mins. Check halfway through to make sure the salami isn't burning. This is a good time to add the garlic bread to heat through
