Haille Bieber went viral last year for her Pizza Toast recipe with truffle oil, burrata cheese, and marinated fresh tomatoes. This Meatball Pizza Toast is an homage to that simple recipe.

I loved the original recipe when I made it (leaving off the truffle oil… I despise truffle oil.). I ended up making it a few times and having it on top of chicken cutlets.

So, the other day when I had leftover meatballs, I decided I needed to try them on Pizza Toast.

It’s like a pizza and a meatball sub had a baby, and it’s just delicious.

How to Make Meatball Pizza Toast

First, you’ll need a slice of ciabatta bread, or whatever kind of bread you like best. Sourdough would be nice, but also plain French bread.

Then, you want to get some pizza sauce. Personally, I like Rao’s Pizza Sauce the best, but if you had a jar of marinara open, just use that!

You’ll need both low-moisture mozzarella and fresh mozzarella. The combination of the two cheeses is just what you want on one piece of toast.

Slice up some leftover meatballs that you tuck into the cheese. SO GOOD!

Then, you’ll use the Zyliss Cheese Grater to grate cheese over top! Use that link, and get 15% off your order!! Use code: ASHLEY15

Bake this toasty goodness until the cheese is melty, and it’s golden brown on top.

Drizzle some balsamic glaze on top, and fresh basil ribbons, and your meal is complete!

Oh, and you can’t forget the extra grating of parmesan cheese!

This Prosecco Vinaigrette Salad would be the perfect, cheesy side dish to go along with this Meatball Pizza Toast!
