Yes, another ball recipe. We like to make things in ball-form around here apparently.
We were introduced to pizza balls when we visited Amanda and Jon last month. Amanda made them for us and we were in love. We have since made them for Mark and Lindsey, and we had a pizza-ball buffet style on New Years.
Bag of dough from Trader Joes
Block of mozzarella cheese (not shredded)
preferred dipping sauces (marinara, Alfredo, pesto)
preferred pizza ball fillings (meats and veggies of your choice)
-First roll out the dough and cut into squares (about 2×2 inches)
Then you put a chunk of mozzarella cheese and whatever other toppings you want in the center of each square. Pepperoni, Ham, Salami, Spinach, Mushrooms are all delicious, but you can insert any topping of your preference.
Then you pinch all the corners together into a ball (kind of like a wanton) and put the pinched side face down on a greased cookie sheet.
After you have a full pan, brush the tops of the balls with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. You can use the sprinkle kind, but we prefer shredded.
Bake at 450 for about 20-25 minutes and TA-DA! Your delicious pizza balls are ready for consumption.
Serve with a variety of sauces for dipping, Marinara, vodka, arribiata, alfredo, pesto or even ranch.
