1-Dish Italian Meatball and Cheese Pizza Bake
Frozen meatballs make this casserole extra quick to put together.
1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 to 10 ounces (about 18 to 20) small meatballs, frozen, thawed
3/4 cup pizza sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella & provolone cheese blend
1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
Mix batter ingredients in a pre-sprayed 9-1/2-inch deep dish pie plate.
Top dough with meatballs. Firmly push meatballs into batter. Pour pizza sauce over meatballs and sprinkle with garlic, cheese and seasoning.
Bake by placing in a COLD oven; set temperature to 350°F. Bake for 30 minutes or until done.
