Add all the ingredients you would on a pizza to this One-Pan Meatball Pizza Skillet Dish for a 30-minute weeknight dinner!


  • 2 Packages Carando Abruzzese Italian Meatballs
  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 c. black olives, chopped
  • 14 oz pizza sauce
  • ½ c. water
  • ½ tsp. Oregano
  • ½ c. Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 ½ c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz. Rigatoni Pasta, cooked


  1. In a large and shallow cooking pan, on medium-high heat, add the olive oil and when heated, add the meatballs to the pan and cook on both sides for 5-7 minutes. The meatballs will brown and appear golden brown on all sides.
  2. Once cooked, remove the meatballs and set aside. Using the remaining oil in the pan, add the diced onion and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Next, add the garlic and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms (canned is fine) and olives and stir into the rest of the ingredients. NOTE: If you are going to add diced pepperoni, you can add them in this stage. About ½ cup of pepperoni should do it.
  4. Pour the pizza sauce and water in the pan and stir. Add the oregano and stir. Return the meatballs back to the skillet on medium-high heat. Cook for about 10 minutes covered with a lid. Finally, add the parmesan cheese and then mozzarella cheese. Cover with lid again to melt and serve over cooked pasta.
