Welcome back to another Pizza Friday! This week we got the Best Homemade Meatball Pizza recipe! It’s simple to make and very delicious! You need 5 ingredients, and it’s ready in about 25 minutes or less!
Ingredients you’ll need to make this Meatball Pizza recipe:
Marinara – homemade 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.
Meatballs – homemade 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.
Wine Pairings Ideas:
We selected a Cabernet Sauvignon to pair with this Homemade Meatball Pizza.The full-bodied and smooth wine complement the meatball pizza perfectly. Every sip after each bite enhances the flavor more and more, making it a perfect match.
Don’t forget to make the best overnight pizza dough to go with your pizza Fridays! We hope you all love this pizza! It’s simple to make and very delicious! You need 5 ingredients, and it’s ready in about 25 minutes or less! Enjoy!
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.
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.
Add about 1/3 cup of marinara and spread it evenly on the dough with the back of a spoon.
Add pre-cooked meatballs on the pizza and sprinkle the cheddar cheese and Havarti cheese evenly on top.
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.
Remove pizza from the oven, cut into slices, and serve immediately.
