Pizza Meatballs

Happy Memorial Day!

Easiest pizza I’ve ever made. Well… not really pizza, but same flavor. These are great for appetizers or part of a main meal.

Make them small and put a toothpick in them to make your Memorial day more festive.

This years celebrations may look different.

I think it is worth it to try and do something special whether it is making something special or going out for a drive.

Comment below how you made this weekend special.

It’s hard to pick the right pizza sauce. I suggest Muir Glen’s or Organicville’s Pizza Sauce. 

Pizza Meatballs

There are many different pizza sauces out there. This time, I tried Muir Glen’s pizza sauce. Not bad, but not my favorite. I like pizza sauce to be a bit sweeter. These Meatballs were fun to make and have a nice look. Try Organicville's Pizza Sauce for a sweeter sauce
