Here's a new take on the family favorite, using Italian bread instead of a round pizza crust. Ready as quickly as frozen pizza but with a fresh homemade taste!

1
bag (16 oz) frozen cooked Italian-style meatballs (about 32 meatballs)
1
jar (26 oz) marinara or tomato pasta sauce
1
loaf French bread (1 lb)
2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)

Steps

  • 1 In large microwavable bowl, place meatballs. Microwave on High 3 minutes. Cut meatballs in half; return to bowl. Stir in marinara sauce. Cover with waxed paper. Microwave on High 6 to 8 minutes, stirring once or twice, until hot.
  • 2 Meanwhile, set oven control to broil. Cut bread in half crosswise; cut each in half lengthwise, making 4 pieces. Place bread, cut side up, on ungreased large cookie sheet. If desired, toast lightly under broiler.
  • 3 Spoon hot meatballs and sauce evenly onto bread. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. To serve, cut each piece in half.

Expert Tips

Line the cookie sheet with foil for less mess. Any runaway sauce or cheese won’t bake onto the cookie sheet.
