You can use frozen meatballs to save on time but you will have to adjust points accordingly, I prefer to make my own and I added a little pizza flare to mine.

How do you make Meatball Pizza?

1. A pizza pan is rubbed with a little bit of oil. Pizza dough is spread into the pan, poked with a fork. Then spread prepared sauce over it.

Where is the best place to buy Pizza dough?

  1. Most markets have some sort of pizza dough that they sell.  You’ll probably be able to find the kind of pizza dough in the can (not my favorite), and some will offer it in a little plastic baggie (probably a better product and likely more fresh).
  2. I do have a tip for the best place to buy pizza dough.  Most pizza restaurants will likely be willing to sell you a ball of their pizza dough.  Just ask!  That’s going to be your best bet for good pizza dough!
  3.  You can also make your own. I have good recipe for Easy Pizza Dough.

What are the best toppings for pizza?

  1. If you’re a meat lover, you’ll most likely enjoy some sort of meat lover’s pizza like this Meatball Pizza!  BBQ Chicken Pizza is my another favorite. 
  2. And my personal choice for pizza topping is Bell Peppers, Olives and Pineapple.  Chicken Chunks, Sausage are also popular pizza toppings ( but I don’t like it that much).
  3. Some people like to add olives, corn, goat cheese, spinach and more.  The possibilities are endless!

It’s pretty likely that everyone in your family will enjoy this Meatball Pizza.  It’s a nice, quick and easy dinner for those nights that are crazy!
