Grilled Meatball and Cheese Pizza
I guess I have become the real Italian Mama.
It doesn’t matter what I am cooking when my children come to visit.
I always have a big pot of meatballs sitting in a tomato gravy on the stove.
The meatballs become a snack, appetizer or a meal.
This week I had four lonely meatballs leftover.
I also had a pound of pizza dough.
Heat your grill to high
Take a 9 x 13 pan and grease lightly with Crisco
Flatten the pizza dough to fit the pan.
Drizzle with olive oil, salt and black pepper.
Take the dough off the pan and place it on the hot grill.
Don’t touch it till the bottom of the crust is firm and it starts to puff.
Flip it over and cook the other side.
Place it back in the pan.
Cut three slices of provolone cheese in half.
Place them on the grilled dough.
Slice the four meatballs into medium thin slices.
Heat them up and set aside.
Place them on the cheese.
Add the tomato gravy
Sprinkle with grated Romano cheese.
Add four ounces of grated mozzarella cheese on top
Place on the grill in the pan or in a 450 degree oven until the cheese melts.
This only takes about five minutes.
Great way to use up your leftovers.
