I made mini meatballs and then had to do something with them. Luckily, Martha came through and gave options! Here is option number 1: Pizza.
I've eaten an awful lot of pizza over the years. One of my original purchases from Pampered Chef was a pizza stone. With my bread machine, crispy, thick-crusted pizza is only an hour and a bit away. I've played with ingredients over the years including cheeses, sauces and toppings. Unfortunately, I'd never mastered thin crust pizza.
There's a restaurant here in town with wood-fired ovens that is wickedly reminiscent of Europe. The food is delicious. The tablecloths are plastic. The flowers are silk and crazy. But the pizza....ohhhhhhhh. This reminds me a little of that.
Great. Now I want wine and fresh pasta. Perhaps later.
Now, I present to you from Everyday Food March 2005 Meatball Pizzas:
2 Whole Wheat Pita breads (6-inch size)From Everyday Food, March 2005
1 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c thinly sliced red onion
6 slices plum tomato
8 frozen mini meatballs
1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. On a baking sheet, place the pitas and divide cheese, onion and tomato equally. Top with meatballs, pressing them into the toppings.
3. Bake until meatballs are cooked through and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
