4 Things You Should STOP Doing When Grilling!

Meatball Lasagna Pizza

When I was in 6th grade the rule was that us “big kids” were allowed to eat lunch in our classroom. We felt like we were the leaders of the school and so awesome that we were able to chill at our desks or on the couches in our classroom and eat our bagged lunches which consisted of sandwiches, handi snacks, gushers and some even got lunchables. But the real treat happened on Fridays when we could order in God Father’s Pizza. It’s no wonder I have a love for our 4 cheese margarita pizza, creamy chicken pesto pizza and now this meatball lasagna pizza. And as I type I’ve got an 8 year old (who was supposedly reading while I type), who insists that the best pizza is our perfect pepperoni pizza.

We each were required to bring a couple bucks and the students all pitched in for delivery. Oh man, that smell would enter the classroom and we were all totally in a pizza trance. We couldn’t wait to get our grubby hands on that pizza! I don’t even know if it still exists but like all of my 6th grade memories in and outside of the classroom revolve around that pizza. And as a side note, that’s actually the year I decided I liked pizza. Can you believe how ridiculous that is?

It kind of continued in college for a bit as we would save our money and split a Little Caesars pizza and cheese sticks as roomies. It was such a treat to eat out for us as all of us were trying to pay for college on our own and be smart with our finances. A big fat pat on the back to my parents who encouraged me to be smart, shop the sales and try to do as much of my own college on my own as possible. Which I ran with, worked hard and did in fact pay for it myself. So trust me, spending money on pizza was always a decision that I had carefully thought out and made sure I’d have enough money for the month.

Now I may not be in college anymore and certainly not 6th grade (but boy do I wish I had the energy of both!), but I still love a good pizza and this was totally groan worthy. It is over the top cheesy, saucy and delicious meatballs to throw it right over the top! And all we did was use leftover meatballs, sauce and peppers from the night before. I love finding a new way to use up dinner from the night before!

How Long Will Pizza Keep?

Leftover pizza lasts for 5 days in the refrigerator.

It should be wrapped in plastic wrap, foil, or placed in a ziploc bag.

How do You Reheat Pizza?

If you are only reheating 1 or 2 pieces, place the pizza in a medium high skillet and cover loosely.

Cook for 2-3 minutes.

Larger amount of pizza can be reheated in the oven.

Heat a foil-lined cookie sheet in a 450°F oven until hot (high heat makes the crust crispy).

Arrange slices on the sheet and heat 10 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.

Pizza can also be reheated in the microwave.

Can You Use Pasta Sauce Instead of Pizza Sauce on Pizza?

The ingredients in our Easy Pizza Sauce are the same ingredients used to prepare the spaghetti sauce: so, yes you can.

  • This looks amazing and will definitely be showing up in our weekly Pizza night fun! Like Darlene asked, I’d also like to know when you add the ricotta. I’m thinking maybe you mix it with the sauce, then spread?

    • Reply
    • Oh, yes, you just dollop it all over the pizza. I’ll correct that asap

    • Hi Kelly, sorry we have now corrected the recipe. You just add little dollops on top of the sauce and it spread a little when baking. SO. GOOD! Hope you love it!
