Homemade Meatball Pizza

Remember last week when I posted pictures of raw meatballs, and you went all Jimmy-Fallon-as-Sara-no-H-'cause-H's-are-EWWWW on me? Well this time I have managed to cook said meatballs, chop them up and put them on a savory pizza. All is right in the world again. Of all the pizza in all the land, Andrew's all-time fave is meatball pizza. He has proclaimed that he could eat it every single day. Who am I to deny that request? Okay, so not every. single. day. But I'm down to indulge quite often myself! So thaw out a few of those freezer meatballs you made and serve them atop your next pizza. Pizza pies for everyone!

Meatball Pizza

  • 4-5 large meatballs, cooked and sliced
  • 1 ball pizza dough
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Italian herbs
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 10-12 mini mozzarella balls, smashed or crumbled with your hands
  • fresh basil for garnish
Preheat a pizza stone in your oven or on your grill to 400 degrees F.  Sprinkle some corn meal on your work surface and work your dough out to a large circle. Drizzle with olive oil and Italian seasoning. Place on pizza stone and cook for 5 minutes until slightly bubbly.

After 5 minutes, spread the sauce onto the pizza crust using a large spoon. Top with the sliced meatballs and mozzarella. Bake/grill until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly (time will vary).

Remove from heat, sprinkle with fresh basil and slice. Wait a couple of minutes before serving to avoid the burning-the-roof-of-your-mouth syndrome.
