Pizza Dip with Cheese Crostini

If you are looking for an easy appetizer, this fits the bill! It can be served hot out of the oven or at room temperature. We had Rhodes Warm & Serve, Soft White Rolls, in our freezer and used them to make crostini rounds. You can slice them up right out of the freezer before baking, or you can pop them in the microwave and use them for little pizza sliders! Either way, you can never go wrong with warm bread!
