Total Time40 mins
- 1 pound pizza dough homemade* or ready-to-use, room temperature
- 16 meatballs thawed
- ¼ cup baking soda
- 5 cups water
- 1 egg beaten
- coarse salt
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking pan (with high sides) with parchment paper and set aside.
Divide your dough into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough out into a circle. Place one meatball into each circle and pinch the seams shut. Repeat with other dough and meatballs.
Bring 5 cups of water to a boil. Add the baking soda and allow to boil again.
Working in batches, gently drop the meatballs into the baking soda water and allow to cook for about 30 seconds.
Remove the balls from the water and place onto your prepared baking pan. Brush with the egg wash and sprinkle salt on top. Bake in your preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
Serve with your favorite marinara sauce.
Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will last for several days.
