These were delicious, and I think they'd make a really fun appetizer. You could stuff this with anything at all, which makes this such a versatile dish.
I do wish that I doubled the recipe. I only got 16 balls to feed all three of us!
- 1 ball of fresh pizza dough
- 1-2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1-2 cups of diced chicken
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning (combine oregano, basil, parsley, and garlic)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- pizza or marinara sauce
Grab a walnut-sized piece of dough and flatten. In each dough piece place a couple pieces of chopped chicken and a tablespoon of cheese. Seal dough around meat and cheese and place seam side down in pie pan.
Repeat, placing approximately 16 dough balls in each pie plate.
Once assembled, drizzle oil over the balls and sprinkle with the herbs.
When ready to bake: bake at 400°F for 16-20 min. Serve with warm pizza or marinara sauce.
(You can also cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze.)
