While shopping at Meijer last week, I noticed that one of my favorite chicken sausage companies now makes fully-cooked chicken meatballs in several different flavors!  I grabbed a package of Aidells® fully-cooked All Natural Chicken Meatballs Italian Style with Mozzarella Cheese and popped them into my cart.

Since my family had been requesting pizza for dinner, I immediately thought of using Aidells® meatballs in a delicious pizza creation!

*NOTE: I left the meatballs whole, but if you prefer more meaty goodness in every bite, you can cut them into quarters before placing them on the pizza.
