Pizza 'fondue' -- Fundido--

"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."

  1. You can also put 8 oz of cream cheese down before you put the pizza sauce down. Also, can use tortilla chips with it.
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. Simple, and fun for kids. I added some pine nuts for a little texture, and some parsley leaves to help with the appearance.
  5. Definitely a kid pleaser here! I had some tomatoes to use up, so made my own pizza sauce with lots of garlic. The only toppings we used were extra cheeses. Gave the kids each their own bowl of sauce-they loved it!
