dash ... we tried it

Meatball Pizza

Level: Easy

Time: 25 minutes

What we thought: There’s nothing particularly special about this recipe – it calls for pre-baked crust, store-bought sauce and pre-made meatballs – but the beauty of the meal is its simplicity. Even though I made a crust from dough I had frozen, I still had lunch served within a half-hour. My husband and son particularly enjoyed the pie as it offered a new, yet familiar, twist on typical pizza fare.

On second thought: Spending $10 on ingredients for pizza might have you dialing up delivery, but there’s a second dinner to be had. I’ll use the leftover meatballs, sauce and cheese for meatball subs later in the week.
