This meatball pizza with Caesar is a fun pizza topping combo that combines best of both worlds: meatballs and tangy Caesar dressing.
Caesar dressing is really having a moment in my house. I used it and mixed it with lime juice for the best chicken taco caesar salad and now here instead of pizza sauce. It’s so fun to get creative with pizza toppings and we did just that with this pizza recipe.
What ingredients do you need for this pizza?
- Pizza crust
- Caesar dressing
- Ricotta cheese
- Shredded mozzarella
- Garlic powder
- Fresh basil
What meatballs should I use on meatball pizza?
- You can, of course, use any meatballs you would like, but I use Costco meatballs. They are perfect for this pizza because they have a little kick.
- If you make your own meatballs or use a different brand, just add a pinch of red pepper flakes so you have that little kick which really helps the pizza come together.
We love making pizza together as a family and this one is no different. If you have kids in your house, this is a great way to get them involved with cooking dinner. My kids love to place the meatballs, scatter the cheese and help set the basil.

*I used Costco meatballs that have a little kick or use any meatballs and add a pinch of red pepper flakes Ingredient amounts change a little based on preference and size of dough. For example, I used Costco frozen meatballs which have a little heat to them. If your meatballs are on the plainer side, I'd recommend adding a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.
