Do you ever get stuck in a rut with dinner? You have tacos one night, spaghetti one night, pizza one night and so on. You know what your family will like, you are short on time, and you just keep repeating the same things week after week. Well, it is time to switch things up! I was inspired by Ragú® to put an awesome twist on their classic spaghetti and meatballs recipe by turning it into a pizza! Definitely a #saucesome twist the whole family is going to go crazy for! What is Saucesome? Saucesome is like mealtime magic!

Spaghetti & Meatballs Pizza {Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts}

Dinner at my house, even on a weeknight, is an important part of the day. No matter what is going on, we do our best to all have dinner together. My son is in charge of getting the table set, getting drinks for everyone and helping out with whatever he can. It is a time where we can all come together, relax, and chat about our days. My son will tell stories about what happened at school, and is always full of questions about our day. So when I told them we were making a pizza that had our favorite spaghetti and meatballs on it, they thought I was crazy. But I got them involved, and by the end they were believers. With all of us working together, we were eating in no time! My husband said it was kind of like having spaghetti and meatballs and your bread sticks all together.

For this pizza, you can use your favorite homemade pizza crust or store bought crust.  I used Italian sausage for the base of my meatballs, so they had tons of flavor and were a little closer to a classic pizza topping.  The spaghetti is tossed with Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce and then I used the same sauce to spread on the crust.  A little secret I have learned with making homemade pizza is to bake the crust for a few minutes before putting on any toppings.  It gets a little crispier  that way.  Spaghetti & Meatball pizza is definitely a great weeknight meal that will get your family wanting to come to the table.
