Grilled Meatball and Cheese Pizza

26 May

Meatball 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.

That’s it.

Great way to use up your leftovers.

Buffalo Chicken Calzone

10 Mar

Buffalo Calzone

One pound of pizza dough

4 cups of leftover shredded chicken

1/2 bottle Franks Wing sauce

Two ounces of crumbled blue cheese

Four slices of Provolone cheese

1/2 thin sliced red onion

Roll out the dough to a rectangle about 9 x 13. I like mine a little smaller so the dough is not too thin.

Place the onion slices on the dough.

Add four slices of provolone cheese.

Mix the chicken with the Franks Wing Sauce.

Place the chicken on the dough with the cheese.

Place the blue cheese on top.

Start rolling the dough and try to keep all the mixture inside so tuck in the ends every so often. It should look like a log.

Place on a greased piece of aluminum foil or a sikpac.

Bake at 450 degrees  on the bottom shelf for about 20 minutes or until it is dark brown.

Remember to spread everything all over the rectangular rolled dough.

Serve with celery and carrot sticks.

 

Asparagus Quiche

4 Mar

Asparagus Quiche

Talk about easy.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

One deep dish pie crust. I use the refrigerated rolled up ones.

4 large eggs

2 cups light cream or milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese plus more for the top when finished cooking

One bunch of cooked asparagus

Three slices American cheese

Three slices Provolone cheese

6 ounces grated Swiss cheese

Line the pie plate with the pie crust

Add  the cheese except the Swiss

Arrange the asparagus so it looks pretty

Whip the eggs, milk, nutmeg , salt and pepper

Pour half  over the asparagus and cheese

Now add the Swiss cheese

Add the remaining egg mixture

Fill to the very top and carefully place on the bottom shelf in the oven.

Bake till the center is not jiggly for about 45  minutes or more.

When the pie comes out of the oven, sprinkle it with the remaining parmesan cheese.

This is great with a cup of soup and a salad.
