1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil.

2. Microwave the meatballs for 30 seconds, then slice them in half and set aside.

3. Divide your pizza dough into eight sections. Flour your work surface, and then roll out and stretch each section into 4-inch rounds.

4. Spread two tablespoons of marinara sauce on one half of each round, then cover with two meatball halves. Sprinkle cheese two tablespoons of cheese over top.

5. Fold the dough over the filling and use your fingers to pinch the edges closed.
