Meatball Parmesano Pizza Recipe

Sunday, November 11, 2018
If we ever have leftover Meatballs which is usually not the case in our house, this is a great way to make another fantastic meal with those leftovers!


We have made submarine sandwiches as well with leftovers meatballs but who doesn't like pizza?


Honestly, I have to make a batch just for these reasons.


Covered sandwiches and pizza.


Starting with homemade long simmered meatballs, then making the fresh dough, cheese and meatball topping this becomes a whole meal in itself!


A small antipasto on the side and vino you're good to go!


We never let leftovers go to waste in our home, there is always another plan to recreate another way to use whatever we have into another meal!

This meatball pizza is like having a whole meatball sub just on top of the pizza.


The sauce is delicious, it's very fresh tasting.


I love when mom repurposes leftovers like this one, it became a family favorite with my kids also.


Oh, course, loaded with cheese it really makes your mouth water with delight!
