Pizza Fondue

It's time to rethink the way your family does pizza night. I heard about this recipe on a talk show and then personalized it by using home-canned sauce. —Susan Carlson, Perry, New York

    We really liked this! My son said it tasted like a Subway meatball sub without the meatballs. I guess I need to serve with meatballs as the other reviewer suggested :) My only adjustment I would make next time is how to keep this heated. My fondue pot uses sterno but that kept it too hot and steaming. Until I get an electric one that I can adjust the temperature down lower, I have a mini dip crock pot I will use to keep warm.

    I haven't made this yet, but will. And, Sallygirl7, I don't know where you were raised or where you are from but you need to get you nose out of the clouds! This recipe is far from a so-called "ghetto recipe" as you called it. If you don't have anything decent to say, I was always told not to say anything at all! 'Nuff said!!!

    This is great! You can also omit the hamburger and use pre-cooked, frozen meatballs to dip. This would also be great as a spread on toasted pita bread, too. Raw veggies (broccoli and summer squash) would make good "dippers" for this, as well. So would larger pieces of macaroni cooked al dente which you could spear and dip.

    I can't wait to try this - we've been asked to provide a snack backstage for a school production and the cast of teenagers will gobble this right up - bite size bits will get them some hot food into them between costume changes and I haven't met a teenager yet who doesn't like dipping one food in another. Thanks for the cool and budget-saving idea!

    Nice cheesey pizza dip, but it needs a little zip for my taste - next time I will add some diced pepperoni and spices
