Pizza Fondue

Pizza Fondue

To celebrate the season opener of the National Football League (NFL), or American football season, I have decided to share one of my most favorite recipes from my childhood:  Pizza Fondue.

I’m from Maryland and we have two professional football teams:  the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens.  As they are in two different conferences, there’s no great rivalry.  You can root for both teams. They only play each other every four years.  Theoretically they could play each other in the Superbowl, but that’s extremely unlikely to happen.  Last season, the Redskins made it to the playoffs and the Ravens won the Superbowl.  Pretty awesome season.  Can’t wait to see what this season brings!

Come game day, my kid are excited because, while they don’t really care about the game, they are all about the game day snacks.  Crab Dip and Pizza Fondue are the most requested.

Back in the 1970s, fondues were all the rage.  Pizza Fondue is a kid friendly take on the trend. My mom made this fondue for me and I still remember it in all of its awesomeness.   It is really easy to make and a true crowd pleaser.  I never have “leftover” fondue.  You can’t ask for an easier recipe that is so popular with pretty much everyone!

Pizza Fondue
Serves: A Crowd
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, small dice
1/2 pound ground beef or Italian Sausage (casings removed)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 containers of pizza sauce (about 28-30 ounces)
1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese

1 loaf of Italian Bread, cubed

Heat olive oil over in a 4 quart sauce pan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent, stirring frequently. Add meat to the pan and break into smaller pieces while cooking. Once the meat is almost done, add the garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Once the meat is cooked through, reduce the heat to medium low, add the pizza sauce and stir well. Then add the cheeses and stir until all the cheese is completely melted.

Serve with cubed bread for dipping.

    We are having a tailgate potluck at work on Friday for the Seahawks. I’ve already promised the group this dish!

    I have a quick question about the pizza fondue. In the recipe it calls for 28-30 ounces of pizza sauce. Is that the weight of each can or total? To my understanding it’s each can’s weight but I just wanted to be sure. Thanks a lot.

      Mayuri, the 28-30 ounces is the total amount of sauce you need. Some cans are 14 ounces and some 15 ounces. I didn’t want people to buy three cans, if that makes sense. Thanks for trying the recipe, let me know how it turns out.

      Jena, I have kept it in the crock pot for serving purposes and it’s done quite well there. I would make sure the meat is cooked through, as you said. Thanks for asking!

    Made this yesterday for the Super Bowl game and served it from a mini Crock Pot to keep warm. It was a crowd-pleaser, just as you promised. Super easy and delicious! I think it got better as the night went on. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
