Ingredients you’ll need to make this Meatball Pizza recipe:

  • Marinarahomemade or store-bought. If I had to choose, I would make homemade marinara because it’s crazy easy! Our homemade marinara is ready in 10 minutes!  Rao’s Marinara Sauce is also a good fall-back.
  • Cheddar Cheese with Parmesan Notes – Adds nice flavor and pairs nicely with meatballs.
  • Havarti Cheese – Adds nice creamy notes.
  • Meatballshomemade or store-bought. We like making our own because it’s easy and we can control the flavor. We make our homemade Fennel and Pork Meatballs.  It’s a super easy process and comes together in about 10 minutes.  The best tip to make meatballs stay on the final pizza is to cut them in half after making them.

This Homemade Meatball Pizza recipe is super easy to make at home in your oven. Requires 5 ingredients, and it’s ready in about 25 minutes or less! 


  • Pizza dough – homemade or store-bought
  • 1/3 cup marinara – homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese with Parmesan Notes
  • 1/2 cup shredded Havarti Cheese
  • Meatballs – homemade or store-bought


  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat the oven to 550 degrees F or as high as it can get. You want your oven as hot as possible. 
  2. Prepare pizza dough.  Flour the surface and flour a rolling pin to roll the dough from the center to the edges until the circle is about half an inch thick.  Once fully rolled out, place parchment paper on your pizza peel, gently pick up the dough, and lay it on top. 
  3. Add about 1/3  cup of marinara and spread it evenly on the dough with the back of a spoon.
  4. Add pre-cooked meatballs on the pizza and sprinkle the cheddar cheese and Havarti cheese evenly on top.
  5. Gently slide pizza onto the pizza stone and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.  If needed, turn on the broiler on high to make the cheese extra brown on top. Be careful not to burn the pizza, as this process goes quickly. 
  6. Remove pizza from the oven, cut into slices, and serve immediately.
