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
1 recipe weeknight pizza dough or store bough pizza crust
1 ½ cups mozzarella, shredded
6 oz frozen meatballs, thawed and sliced
¼ 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.
I have used this recipe severals times since I first saw it posted. We LOVE IT!!! and so do our friends 🙂 Thank you for sharing it.
Glad to hear it was a hit!
Worked great! The meatballs were really sweet, and it gave the pizza great flavor…. I still have so many left over meatballs I think I'll make it again tonight!
Kristin – absolutely! Those meatballs will be perfect for this pizza!!
I have a ton of let over meatballs from party this past weekend…do you think I could use them? even though they have sauce already on them??
great idea and delicious looking pizza Steph.
