Meatball and Ricotta Pizza

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

If you follow my blog, you know that pizza is one of my all-time favorite foods.  I could eat it every day and never get tired of it  This pizza was inspired by our recent trip to Vegas.  I saw this on the menu at one of the places we ate lunch and made a note to whip it up when we got home.

OMG - delicious!!  I absolutely loved this pizza - especially the creamy ricotta on top.  I used my favorite weeknight pizza dough recipe and some frozen meatballs because I was out of homemade meatballs.  This is a new favorite!

Meatball and Ricotta Pizza
(Printable Recipe)

1 recipe weeknight pizza dough or store bough pizza crust
pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups mozzarella, shredded
6 oz frozen meatballs, thawed and sliced
1/4 cup ricotta cheese

Place pizza stone in oven and preheat to 475°.

Roll out dough onto a piece of parchment paper (I trace my pizza stone onto parchment before placing it in the oven as a guide). Prick dough with fork and add sauce, mozzarella cheese and meatballs. Drop spoonfuls of ricotta cheese on top of pizza.

Transfer pizza to hot pizza stone. (I use a flat cookie sheet to move the dough to the stone) Bake for 12-15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
