Pizza Meatballs

March 13, 2017


There are many different pizza sauces out there. This time, I tried Muir Glen’s pizza sauce. Not bad, but not may favorite. I like pizza sauce to be a bit sweeter. These Meatballs were fun to make and have a nice look. I’ve had a crazy last two weeks. Which is my fault for working full time and taking some classes, yeah midterms. So if you were wondering why there is a lack of posts, it’s cause i’m crazy...
