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.
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!Print
Easy Pizza Fondue
This Easy Pizza Fondue is a delicious and interactive dinner or appetizer idea. Dip bread and all of your favourite pizza toppings into a flavourful pizza cheese!
- Yield: 4 - 6 servings 1x
- 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)
- cubes of crusty bread
- pepperoni sticks
- salami cubes
- cooked sausage chunks
- bell pepper chunks
- grape tomatoes
- black olives
- In a bowl combine the mozzarella, Parmesan and flour. Mix well to coat the cheese with flour. Set aside.
- In a large saucepan, combine the garlic and wine, bring to a simmer over medium heat. Then reduce the heat to medium-low.
- 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.
- Stir in the tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, basil and oregano. Cook, stirring, until the tomatoes are heated through, about 2 minutes.
- Transfer to a fondue pot and serve immediately.

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!
Mmmmm.. this looks delicious! I need to get myself a fondue pot now, but I know i’d just dip EVERYTHING in cheese.
Thanks Meredith! I think everything is better in cheeeeese! 😉
A fondue bible? That’s going on my wish list right.this.second! I am an avid fan of fondue – we grew up with fondue, and it’s something that I’ve brought forward into my very own adult life… Thanks so much for sharing – can’t wait to get my hands on this book and try some new recipes. In the meantime, I’m sharing this post over on Audrey’s FB page! Have a great day Jo-Anna!! 🙂
I know! A fondue bible is genius!! Thanks for sharing Sheila!
We LOVE doing fondue with the family!! We’ll have to try this version for sure! Today’s FB share.
Thanks for sharing this Andrea! I hope you enjoy this recipe!!
i think my kids would just love this!
I bet they would! Mine sure did! 🙂
Well, now I’m mad at you, ok not really mad, but you know what I mean. This is so far off my diet plan it’s not even funny but it looks AMAZING and I want to stuff it in my face.
Hahahaha! It really is torture isn’t it?! But it’s SO good!
Yu-HUM! This looks dangerously good. Cheese + garlic is one of my favourite combos… and who doesn’t love a fondue? Thanks for the idea & the recipe!
It is dangerous, but so worth it, lol!! And I agree cheese + garlic = heaven!!
WANT. Mmmm… Great pics too.
what a great idea! This would be such a fun party for my nephews.
Thanks Stephanie! My kids sure loved it…I bet your nephews would too! Yum!
great idea! The boys would LOVE this.
This looks fabulous. Thank you for the recipe. I’ve been looking for ideas for our family nights.
Thanks Sheri! I hope you try it out and enjoy it!!
This looks like fun! I love fondues for fun family meals, but I always make the same ones. This is a little different, and I’m sure the family would love it. Thanks for sharing.
I love fondues with family too – it’s such a fun and delicious activity for everyone!
Jo-Anna this is such a great idea. My boys would absolutely love it! (not to mention how much they would love getting to use our fondue forks….). Pinning it. Thanks for the inspiration!
Hello yummy morsels, get in my tummy! Great idea, my kids love anything dipable, and we have a fondue pot that needs to be dusted off! Maybe supper for tonight!
Dipping is the best – my kids love it too so much! I hope you enjoy it!!
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!
Finally likes cheese?! Wow that’s so hard to imagine someone not liking cheese, lol! Cheese is my vice!!
I am so out of the fondue loop; this is genius!
Thanks Tia! We loooove fondues – they’re such a fun and simple way to eat dinner!
Pizza fondue. Brilliant. Sooo hungry, sooo verrryyy hungry. Thanks Jo-Anna, this might just be worth digging out the fondue pot.
OMG, this is brilliant. We are a family of 2 vegetarians and 2 meat eaters so this would be a meal we could all share. Love it!
This looks amazing, and perfect for Super Bowl! The pictures you take are awesome too! I’d love for you to come link up at Skip The Housework Saturday, live now! http://www.reasonstoskipthehousework.com/skip-housework-saturday/
That just looks delish! And your pictures…omg, it makes it soo tempting to eat!!!
That looks like it would be a HUGE hit with my family, thanks for the idea – that is sooo cool!!
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.
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!
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!!
Quick question…do you think this would work if I made it a head and reheated? Thanks so much!
