  5. Cut the mozzarella cheese block into small chunks and set it to the side.
  6. In a baking dish, add the cream cheese mixture and spread across the bottom of the pan evenly. Top the cream cheese mixture with the spicy crushed tomato sauce. Add cooked pepper and sausage mixture over the crushed tomato sauce. Top off with mozzarella cheese.
