Easy Pizza Fondue

If you like pizza, you’ll love this Easy Pizza Fondue! Dip bread and all of your favourite pizza toppings into a flavourful pizza cheese!

Hi friends! I’m really happy to be back here and back to my regular blogging.  After my big cooking challenge, I’ve been easing into my new years resolution to simplify this year, so I’m taking things slower moving forward.  I really want to focus on what’s right in front of me more…like my littles and family time.  But the good news is we all have to eat, and I like to share what we like to eat, so this blogging gig can work out just fine!  😉

I actually made this recipe a while ago, and I’ve been so excited to share it with you!  When I made this for dinner for my family it was SUCH a big hit…what’s not to love about dipping things into cheeeeeeese?!

This is the perfect mid-winter pick me up dinner.  Because you’re dipping things and reaching across the table to get bread and pepperoni, you can’t help but chat while doing so.  These kind of interactive dinners are so fun and the kids LOVE it!  I do too, truth be told.

Easy Pizza Fondue {A Pretty Life}

Get creative with all the dippers…whatever you like on your pizza, you can dip in here.  Anything goes!

Cheeeeeeeeeese.  And garlic.  Whoa yum.

Set it all out on the table buffet style…grab a napkin, a fondue fork and get dipping!

Ingredients

Cheese Fondue:

  • 12 oz mozzarella cheese (grated)
  • 1 oz Parmesan cheese (freshly grated)
  • 1 tbsp flour (or rice flour)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2/3 cup drained canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil (or 1 tsp dried basil)
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano (or 1 tsp dried oregano)

Serve with:

  • cubes of crusty bread

  • cooked sausage chunks
  • bell pepper chunks
  • mushrooms
  • grape tomatoes
  • ham

Instructions

  3. Add the cheese mixture by the handful to the saucepan, stirring constantly after each addition. Use a spoon and stir in a figure eight motion until the cheese is melted.

I found this recipe from the book The Fondue Bible by Ilana Simon, as part of a book review.  And because I thought this book was so great, I wanted to feature a recipe from it!  There were so many great fondue ideas that I didn’t know where to start…do I make a classic fondue or a Ginger Beef Fondue or a Mexican Fondue…I see many a fondue in my future!

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

So dust off that fondue pot and get dipping…it’s such a fun way to share a meal!  Actually, you could even serve this as an appetizer if you wanted!

In the meantime, I’m sharing this post over on Audrey’s FB page! Have a great day Jo-Anna!! 🙂

  • Reply Shauna January 21, 2014 at 11:13 AM

    This is a new one for me- such a great idea. My son finally likes cheese (he isn’t a picky eater, just never liked cheese). Although, this may be pushing it and a better one to try when he’s away at college!

    • Reply Jo-Anna January 21, 2014 at 4:56 PM

      Finally likes cheese?! Wow that’s so hard to imagine someone not liking cheese, lol! Cheese is my vice!!

    This recipe looks incredible! I have a question for you: do you drain the tomatoes before adding them to the pot? Your mouth-watering photo seems to show very fine bits of tomato in with the melted cheeses and wine, hence my question.

    • Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife November 10, 2014 at 4:55 PM

      Hi Joyce! Yes make sure to drain them before you add them to the cheese…I think the fine bits that you are seeing are just small pieces of tomato. I hope you enjoy this recipe – it’s really great! 🙂

    We made this last year and it was a HIT! Our crew loved it above all other fondue cheeses. With that said… I can’t remember if I used fresh mozzarella or just regular, block cheese. What kind did you use? Thanks!

    • Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife February 8, 2015 at 11:19 AM

      Hi Alli! I just use regular block cheese for this recipe! Enjoy!

    I have got to make this for our next pizza night, what a wonderful twist on pizza!!

  • Reply Sheila in MD December 16, 2017 at 2:41 PM

    Quick question…do you think this would work if I made it a head and reheated? Thanks so much!
