Thinking of some delicious and mouthwatering Recipes with Pizza Dough and Ground Beef?
One of our most popular pizzas at Mortadella Head is the Mamaluke.
It’s rich, cheesy, and delicious, topped with the best ground meatballs you will ever eat.
In my opinion, this is one of the best ways to make a pizza if you have extra lean ground beef; it’s more diverse than a standard hamburger pizza, and is guaranteed to be different than anything you’ve ever eaten before.
What Makes The Mamaluke So Special?
There’s lots of things that keeps everyone coming back for more when it comes to the Mamaluke.
For one, aside from the mozzarella cheese, you have fresh ricotta cheese dolloped on the dough at the very end. It makes for a creamier depth to the dish, and adds a sweet punch that you weren’t really expecting.
The tomato sauce is as rich as ever, using marinara sauce for this one instead of our pizza sauce.
It’s topped with our homemade meatballs, fresh parmesan cheese, and basil, and then served to you hot and fresh.
But the best part?
It’s super easy to make this ground beef pizza for yourself in your very own kitchen.
All you need is a few simple ingredients!
And today, we are going to show you how to do it, so you can wow everyone with this great recipe on your next pizza night.
How Do You Make Your Meatballs?
Watch our video above to see our simple recipe for some really good homemade meatballs!
All you’ll need is a pound of ground beef, a pound of ground pork, an egg for every pound of meat, salt, pepper, fresh chopped parsley, and chopped garlic cloves (no garlic powder for these).
Combine the ingredients until together, and form the meat mixture into balls with your hands.
Either fry them on the stove in a large skillet over medium heat (being sure to save some for the whole family to try), or toss them on a large baking sheet and put them in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°.
