Italian Beef Meatball Sandwich Rolls

Recipe courtesy of: Chef Tiffany Blackmon and promoted by  beef loving texans 


  • 1 recipe Italian-Style Beef Sausage

  • 2 eggs, divided

  • 1/4 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs

  • 12 cherry-sized mozzarella balls (about 6 ounces)

  • 12 ounces refrigerated pizza dough

  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Marinara sauce, chopped basil leaves (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine Italian-Style Beef Sausage mixture, 1 egg and bread crumbs in large bowl; mixing thoroughly. Shape into 12, 2-inch meatballs. Place a mozzarella ball in the middle of each meatball, making sure the mozzarella ball is completely covered with the beef mixture. Place meatballs on aluminum-foiled lined broiler rack coated with cooking spray. Bake in 400°F oven 17 to 19 minutes.

  2. Cut dough into 12  pieces, about 1 ounce each. Stretch each piece to cover 1 meatball, pinching the edges to seal. Place on parchment-lined shallow-rimmed baking sheet, seam-side down. Place remaining 1 egg in small bowl, beat with a fork. Brush rolls with egg; top with Parmesan cheese.

  3. Bake rolls in 400°F oven 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce and basil, as desired.
