- SERVES: 4-6 servings
- LEVEL: Super Simple
- 1 pizza crust (I used a DeLallo Pizza kit - THE BEST - and used half of the dough to make one pizza ring)
- ½ cup ricotta cheese (or cream cheese if you want a smoother texture)
- 15-20 meatballs (I used a store bought, yummy, clean-ingredient, pre-made chicken meatball)
- 1-2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 1 beaten egg
- dry oregano and sea salt for sprinkling on top
- marinara sauce for dipping
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll the pizza dough out onto a piece of parchment. Cut three small crossing lines through the middle to make a star shape.
- In the space between the center cuts and the edge of the crust (kinda looks like a wheel), spread the ricotta, place the meatballs, and sprinkle the Mozzarella cheese.
- Gently pull the point of each star back and tuck it under the outer crust, rolling both sides inward so they overlap. (SEE VIDEO - it will be easier to understand.) Repeat this process with all the cut sections. Now go back around and tuck the remaining outer edges up and inward. It should look like a wreath.
- Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with oregano and sea salt. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Place a bowl or marinara in the center of the ring and go to town with that meatball pull-apart pizza ring!
Things that are not good:
*Cheese on the outside of your pizza crust. It gets overly brown. Try to tuck all of it into those little pockets before baking.
*Cheese that spills out all over the place. Prevent this by making sure all of your edges are really tucked up to form those "pockets" before baking.
*When your dough splits apart. Make sure to really firmly tuck the pointed cut piece around and under the edge of the crust when assembling.
