Whole Wheat Pizza Balls

Home, kids, potty, sandy shoes... Milk?... Water?...Dinner? Yes, it is that time when we come home from our day, and we all want something. At times, there are tears and pouts and whines....oh wait that is usually from me. So, trying to figure out what to make for dinner can be a little bit challenging. However, anything pizza and anything in a ball can rise to the top of the dinner chain in no time.
Whole wheat pizza dough, cooked broccoli, cheese and pizza sauce.  
 Chop up the fillings and mix together.
Flatten out the dough into a small disk and fill it up. Fold the dough over pinch and roll into a ball.
Bake until golden brown. I had some spillage. Oops.
You can sprinkle the outside with Parmesan cheese prior to baking. You can go crazy making all sorts of fun dipping sauces to try. These are so good that you and your little ones will be happy eating them for dinner or really anytime of the day.

Whole Wheat Pizza Balls
From Weelicious


1 16 oz package of whole wheat pizza dough
3/4 cup broccoli florets, cooked and chopped
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice. We used cheddar as that is what was on hand.
1/2 cup pizza sauce
olive oil
Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Bring pizza dough to room temp and divide into 16 even pieces

In another bowl combine the cooked broccoli (or other type of filling of your choice), cheese and pizza sauce. Roll out each piece of dough into a round and flatted into a disk. Add about 1 tbsp of the cheese mixture in the center. Take the edge of the dough and bring them to the center, pinching along the edges. Make sure they are stuck together and then roll the dough into a ball.

Place the ball, sealed side down onto a greased baking sheet. Repeat the steps with the rest of the dough. Brush each ball with olive oil and if you would like, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown. Serve and enjoy.
