Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, covering and cooking until meatballs are heated through, 5-6 minutes.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, covering and cooking until meatballs reach minimum internal temperature, 5-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Par-Bake the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads directly on oven rack in hot oven and bake until lightly browned, 6-8 minutes. While flatbreads par-bake, make meatballs.

  2. 2

    Make the Meatballs

    Mix ground beef, panko, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Form into eight equally-sized meatballs.

  3. 3

    Cook the Meatballs

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium high heat with 2 tsp. olive oil. Add meatballs to hot pan and roll occasionally until browned on all sides, 8-10 minutes. Add spinach and stir occasionally until spinach is wilted, 3-4 minutes. Stir in marinara, seasoning blend, a pinch of salt, and 2 Tbsp. water. Flatten meatballs. Don't worry if they break down a bit more! Cover, and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-6 minutes. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Bake the Pizzas

    Place par-baked flatbreads on a clean work surface. Top flattened meatballs and sauce, then cheese. Place pizzas directly on oven rack, with prepared baking sheet below to catch any drips. Bake in hot oven until cheese is melted, 5-6 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
