My kids like to have friends over and serve them pizza. But there are nights that I don’t want to cook, and delivery is just too expensive. So when I discovered this recipe for pizza fondue in 200 Slow Cooker Recipes by Stephanie Ashcraft and Janet Eyring, I had to give it a try.
Makes 8-10 servings
1 (26- to 28-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
½ cup sliced pepperoni, quartered
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
Combine all ingredients except the cheese in a greased 2- to 3- ½-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 2 to 3 hours. Add cheese the last hour of cooking and stir to combine. Stir again just before serving.
I substituted sausage for the pepperoni, and we dipped thick slices of French bread into the fondue. The cheese did disappear in cooking. I think that next time I’ll add it just before serving.
While it won’t replace all pizza for us, this pizza fondue will probably appear in our meal rotation on a regular basis.
