Buffalo Meatball Grilled Flatbread

Recipe sponsored by Sweet Baby Ray’s

I love cooking pizza and flatbread on my grill. In my opinion it is the best way for a home cook to get into the world of making great pizza! It is also really fun to do as an appetizer when you are having people over.

These Buffalo Meatball Flatbreads had a really unique flavor. Using the rich and buttery Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Sauce as the base layer added a vibrancy to the whole pizza. The meatballs themselves were awesome and I could easily just snack on them on their own. I added fresh oregano in the meatballs and on top of the flatbread to really push the floral herbaceous springtime flavors.
In the meatballs was chicken, breadcrumbs, cheddar, egg, parsley, oregano, and Sweet Baby Ray’s Hot Sauce Form and broil on both sides. Once cooked, I tossed these in a little Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Sauce while they were still hot so the flavor could really stick to the meatballs. Celery, carrot, and the meatballs cut into 8ths. Grill the dough on high on the first side, then flip and turn the grill to low. Brush on the Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo sauce first. Then add the meatballs, veggies, and mozzarella cheese. A thin drizzle of ranch and some fresh oregano to finish it off. The juicy meatballs and crunch of the carrot and celery really reminds you that you are eating buffalo chicken, and the crispy flatbread is a great vehicle for these flavors. And of course add a little more hot sauce if you want to take it to the next level!
