Cheesy Pizza Fondue

Recipe by Andrew Schloss, courtesy of

If you think that fondue is sophisticated, adults-only party fare, think again. Why should grown-ups have all the fun?

This velvety dip has all the flavorful elements of cheese pizza but offers better nutrition. Kids will love the warm pita triangles that reinforce the pizza theme, but it is equally good as a vegetable dip, or a dip for chicken fingers, mini-meatballs, oven-baked fries, or wherever your imagination takes you.
