Italian meatball pizzas

Delicious and fun to make with the kids.

TIP: Meatballs can be made up to two days ahead. Keep covered, in the fridge. You can replace with Italian sausage meat squeezed from their casings. Fry meat until browned. Individual bases are available from the fridge section of major supermarkets.
