I am pretty traditional when it comes to the pizza toppings I enjoy. I like veggies including onions and peppers, mushrooms and pepperoni. Of course, this recipe has the meatballs as the base for the recipe. What toppings do you enjoy? To make this really easy, I use frozen meatballs and jarred pizza sauce. And the pepperoni I like to use is the really small variety that you can also use in salads. Also, a thicker sub bun works really well with this recipe. Easy Pizza Sub Meatball Italiano would pair perfectly with a tall glass of my Frozen Strawberry Lynchburg Lemonade. Why not give it a go?
