My husband is back from his ski trip and loved every minute of it. He also realized I stole a few meatballs I made for him to take on his trip to make this great tasting pizza. Sometimes pizza just needs a little pizzazz and adding toppings is a great way to jazz it up. I cut up some homemade meatballs and placed them on top and it added just enough to give this pizza a little something extra. I made a homemade dough using my bread maker, but I have used the can of dough from the refrigerator isle and it works just as great. So do what’s easiest for you to make this great weeknight dinner. Make the first bite count!

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients:
Pizza Dough, enough for 1 pizza
1 cup tomato pizza sauce
4-5 Italian meatballs, recipe HERE
4 ounces fresh mozzarella
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon oregano

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a baking pan or pizza pan and roll out dough to desired thickness.

2. Evenly coat dough with tomato sauce, leaving space around the edges for a crust.

3. Crumble the fresh mozzarella evenly over the tomato sauce. Then sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over top.

4. Cut the meatballs into quarters and evenly space them out on top of the pizza. Sprinkle the freshly grate parmesan and oregano over the top and bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese is bubbly. If you desire a golden brown top, place pizza under broiler for 3-5 minutes, watching carefully so not to burn. Allow to cool a few minutes, the slice and serve.
