Pizza Muffins with Meatballs Inside!
While I opted to called these Meatball Pizza Muffins, they are actually a cross between a mini pizza and a small open-faced meatball sandwich... but made in a muffin tin. Not only is this presentation fun for the entire family, but you just have to pop the Meatball Pizza Muffins out of the tin (which if well-greased, this will be no trouble and easy to clean up too), no need to clean up a counter or cutting board from cutting a pizza on it.
The Cooked Perfect® Fresh Meatballs used to make this recipe are already fully cooked and just need to be heated. This makes the Meatball Pizza Muffins incredibly easy and fast to get on the table without sacrificing flavor.
Making Meatball Pizza Muffins
I'm going to show you just how quick and easy making these cute little Meatball Pizza Muffins is. Printable recipe below.
You just need four ingredients and a greased muffin tin to make these pizza muffins.
Refrigerated pizza dough is easy to cut and shape.
Place the dough rounds into the cavities of the muffin tin and press gently to form the little pizza cups. Then pop a meatball in each and top with a spoon of sauce.
Top each with shredded pizza cheese or mozzarella and bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven. That's it. Just let them cool a couple of minutes before enjoying.
As I mentioned Cooked Perfect Fresh Meatballs are fully cooked and just need to be reheated to serve. They are flame broiled to give them a tasty home cooked flavor. They are All Natural, with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. While the meatballs were baked as part of this recipe, they are prepared even faster in the microwave. The microwave in pouch they come in enables them to be ready in just two minutes. Then just toss them over your favorite side or in a bun. To make life even easier for you, each package comes with two simple recipes right on it. They are found in the refrigerated meat & poultry section.
Be sure to try my Greek Meatball Pita Sandwiches or Easy Korean Meatballs Hot Pot as well, both are also made with the meatballs. If you are making these as appetizers for a party. perhaps team them with Chilis Southwest Egg Rolls, Ham and Cheese Pinwheels Puff Pastry Appetizers or make my seasoned sour cream dip recipe.
