4.3 from 3 reviews

These Pizza Meatballs are a quick, easy and kid-friendly lunch or dinner option. They’re low-carb,  packed with protein and taste great on their own and dipped in marinara!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 10 pepperoni, chopped
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs, divided
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce + extra for dipping

Instructions

In a large bowl, combine chicken, pepperoni, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, spices, cheese and 1/3 cup sauce.

Mix well. 

Place remaining breadcrumbs on a plate. 

Form mixture into balls. They will be wet and a little sticky. Roll in breadcrumbs and place on a greased, foil-lined baking sheet. 

Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes, flipping the meatballs halfway through.
