"I always keep meatballs and bread shell crusts in the freezer to make this pizza at the spur of the moment," says Mary Humeniuk-Smith of Perry Hall, Maryland. "Add a tossed salad and you have a delicious dinner."

"I thought this was okay but not great. This was the first time I tried meatballs on pizza and I think the flavor/texture combination just isn't my favorite."

"Great recipe. I added pepperoni, onions and peppers and used tortillas for the pizza base. They made great personal pizzas and everyone could personalize their topping."

"Quick and easy to make. I did cut the meatballs into quarters instead of halves. Left out the onions and added mushrooms for my family's taste. I also put it under the broiler for a minute or two at the end of the cooking time to brown the top. The kids loved it."
