COVID-19 – An update from Pine View Farms

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for pie plate

12 ounces pizza dough, thawed if frozen

1 package Pine View Farms' all beef or beef 'n pork meatballs, thawed.

1/4 cup Three-Ingredient Marinara or store bought marinara sauce

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan, divided

2/3 cup shredded whole-milk mozzarella (2 ounces)

Fresh basil leaves, for serving


Note: one pack of meatballs can make 2 pizzas, especially if you slice the meatballs in half prior to putting on the pizza.

Directions

  1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a 9-inch glass pie plate with olive oil. Stretch dough to an 8-inch round, then press into bottom and up sides of plate. If dough springs back, let rest 5 minutes before continuing.
  2. Place meatballs on a parchment lined sheet and roast for 10 minutes or until no longer pink in the center. Remove from oven. [to make the meatballs go farther, cut them in half and scatter on pizza. It's plenty of meat! In fact, one pack of meatballs will make 2 pizzas.]
  3. Spread marinara over bottom of dough, then top with half of each cheese. Scatter meatballs on pizza. Top with remaining chees
  4. Drizzle pizza with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until cooked through and crust is crisp and golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with basil. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
