Recipe developed in collaboration with @kayleshapenner


  • Fresh (or defrosted) pizza dough

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough and slice into strips.
  3. Place 3 meatballs onto a skewer.
  4. Wrap pizza dough around the meatballs creating a “Mummy” look.
  5. Remove skewer from the meatball mummy. Repeat with remaining dough and meatballs.
  6. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Place meatball mummy onto the aluminum foil lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the dough has cooked through and begins to brown.
  8. Melt butter and brush onto the mummy wrapping.
  9. Using a straw, cut circles out of the mozzarella cheese.
  10. Place mozzarella onto the mummy to make eyes (you can attach with a toothpick if you warn your guests or use ketchup to attach).
  11. Serve with marinara sauce.
