WW Recipe of the Day - Skinny Slow Cooker Pizza Fondue Dip
The second biggest eating holiday after Thanksgiving is Super Bowl Sunday.
Did you know that Superbowl Sunday is the top pizza sales day of the year?
Do you have a plan for enjoying the day and indulging in your favorite foods without getting crazy?
I love pizza. It's one of my favorite foods.
But, it's one of my trigger foods that I usually end up overeating.
So, I thought it would be fun to try out a slow cooker pizza fondue that would allow me to enjoy all the flavors of pizza with a lot fewer calories and points.

Pizza Fondue Dip Recipe Notes
There are lots of recipes for slow cooker pizza fondue or pizza dip. Most tend to be really heavy on the cheese, not a bad thing, but I decided to go with one that was heavy on the tomato sauce.
I chose classico tomato basil sauce, which only has 2 WW SmartPoints in a half-cup serving.
The mozzarella cheese didn't completely melt even after 3 hours and lots of stirring, probably because it was low fat, but the flavor was yummy.
You can serve this slow cooker pizza dip with all kinds of dippers.
Chunks of warm crusty Italian bread, bread sticks, mozzarella sticks, and raw veggies like, broccoli, cauliflower and celery would all work well.
How Many Calories and WW Points in this Pizza Dip?
According to my calculations, each serving has 82 calories and:
1 *SmartPoints (Green plan)
1 *SmartPoints (Blue plan)
1 *SmartPoints (Purple plan)
2 *PointsPlus (Old plan)
creamier - use part skim ricotta or wedges of laughing cow for all or part of the mozzarella
different sauces - there are so many different varieties of sauce available you can create a wide variety of tastes just by changing up the sauce
spicier - add crushed red pepper flakes to taste
more veggies - add chopped mushrooms, black olives, bell pepper, green onion, etc.
meatier - add chopped turkey pepperoni, or crumbled cooked chicken/turkey sausage

Slow Cooker Pizza Dip/Fondue Recipe
- 1 jar (26 to 29 ounces) low-fat, low-sodium meatless marinara sauce (I used Classico tomato basil)
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese (I used part-skim instead)
- ¼ cup shredded reduced-fat Parmesan cheese
- 2 teaspoons oregano (I used Italian seasoning instead)
- 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- For serving: Cubes of Italian bread, breadsticks, raw cauliflower florets, broccoli florets, celery sticks, etc.
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 2 to 3-Quart.
- Lightly grease your slow cooker.
- Put the sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, oregano, onion, and garlic powder in the slow cooker. Stir well to combine.
- Cover and cook on LOW 3 hours, or until the sauce is hot and cheese is mostly melted. (Because the cheese is non-fat, it probably won't completely melt.)
- Serve with Bread cubes and/or vegetables for dipping.
