When it comes to quick and easy dinner solutions, pizza is at the top of my favorites list. My whole family enjoys pizza and this Easy Meatball Pizza was a HUGE hit with everyone!
While shopping at Meijer last week, I noticed that one of my favorite chicken sausage companies now makes fully-cooked chicken meatballs in several different flavors! I grabbed a package of Aidells® fully-cooked All Natural Chicken Meatballs Italian Style with Mozzarella Cheese and popped them into my cart.
Aidells® fully-cooked All Natural Chicken Meatballs meatballs are made with real, hand-picked ingredients just like I would make myself. I love that they taste as good as my own, but are much more convenient than making from scratch. They are gluten-free, contain no nitrates, and have no added hormones, which means they get a green light from me to serve to my family!
Since my family had been requesting pizza for dinner, I immediately thought of using Aidells® meatballs in a delicious pizza creation!
Cue…Easy Meatball Pizza!
This pizza starts with a pre-baked pizza shell topped with your favorite jarred marinara sauce. Three cheeses give it amazing cheesy goodness and Aidells® Italian Style meatballs give it bold Italian flavor.
