Every Friday is Pizza Night in our family. To keep the tradition fresh week after week, we’re always trying new things: personal pizzas, sheet pan pizza, pizza on the grill and now, pizza fondue! This deconstructed, dippable meal was so much fun to put together and an awesome way to get the kids to try a few new veggies.
Admittedly, they were a bit dubious when they first sat down to a gigantic platter of raw pizza toppings. But as soon as they noticed the cheese-stuffed breadsticks they were ready to take the plunge (pun intended).
The breadsticks were super easy to make using store bought pizza dough and string cheese. I brushed them with garlic butter right before baking for extra flavor and they crisped up beautifully while staying oh-so-gooey in the middle.
They were the perfect match to the zingy-and-slightly-cheesy pizza dipping sauces. Even better, once the kids had their fill of breadsticks, they moved right on to the veggies. They were actually excited to try new combinations - my daughter eventually declared that green peppers are her new favorite pizza topping.
Of course, family fondue night wouldn’t be complete without dessert. Nutella Fondue served with strawberries and pound cake was the perfect end to the night.
Nutella Fondue is insanely delicious and almost dangerously easy to make. Just mix together warm heavy cream and Nutella and you’ve got dessert.
