So easy and yummy. Kid and hubby pleasing comfort food in minutes! Faster even than making pizza or waiting for delivery! Makes a great appetizer or even a very satisfying meal! Make as healthy- or unhealthy- as you like! Add anything to the sauce - meat, veggie, etc... Very versatile and quick! We love to make it spicy by adding dried hot pepper flakes, jalapenos, green chilis or cayenne etc... World Tour Italy and Mexico/Tex/Mex/SW This can obviously be adjusted to be Italian or Tex/Mex by the additions used. FUNDIDO (melted cheese) is a popular appetizer in Tx/Mx cooking. To keep this more 'traditional' Mexican use Mexican oregano instead of Italian seasoning and Mexican cheeses like pepper jack or queso quesadilla and bolillos- Mexican crusty rolls. You could even add some cooked chorizo. To make it Italian- use the Italian seasoning and add any 'pizza' type toppings you like.

You can also put 8 oz of cream cheese down before you put the pizza sauce down. Also, can use tortilla chips with it.

It was way too hot to cook, so I decided fondue night was a great idea. I heated the sauce on the stove top, threw in diced pepperoni, then put it all in a pie pan and microwaved it to melt the cheese. The kitchen stayed cool, and everyone loved this. Thanks Mama!

This is a fun, easy and delicious casual meal! I used a can of tomato sauce for the pizza sauce, and went a little heavy on the italian seasoning. Thanks for sharing!
