Meatball pizza is pizza prepared with meatballs. Meatball pizza has become increasingly popular in Upstate New York in contemporary times, and some pizzerias offer them on their menus. Some restaurants offer them as a specialty pizza. Several varieties exist, such as Tex Mex and Greek-style lamb sweet and sour. The meatballs on meatball pizzas may be sliced to reduce their size, sliced in half, or broken-up and spread on them. Meatball pizzas may be prepared in Neapolitan or deep-dish style.
