  • Roll pizza dough on a floured work surface into a 9x12-inch rectangle.

  • Mix spaghetti with spaghetti sauce in a bowl until pasta is coated. Spread spaghetti and sauce down the center of the dough rectangle, leaving about 1 inch at the top and bottom uncovered. Spread meatballs in a line down the center of the spaghetti. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over spaghetti and meatballs. Roll the dough over the filling, starting at a long edge. Pinch ends and seam tightly closed. Transfer roll to the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is browned and filling is hot, 20 to 25 minutes. Brush roll with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt. Serve warm or cold.

Disclaimer: in real life I think the recipe submitter is pretty awesome. Despite our friendship like GW I cannot tell a lie so rest assured the review is legit (in fact I stumbled upon the recipe in the newest recipes and didn't even realize it was hers until I was about to make it!). I wasn't sure what to expect with this but we loved it! It was like spaghetti and meatballs and garlic bread all in the same easy to eat dish. I had everything in the freezer (Jay's pizza crust dough Meatball Nirvana and homemade sauce) so all I had to do was thaw that stuff boil noodles and assemble. Pretty easy. To help you from making the same mistakes I did please note the submitter tells you to flour your work space. This is key to avoid rippage. It's helpful to rinse the pasta in cold water (or use cold leftovers) to avoid warming the dough/rippage too. The measurements are spot on though I did add some raw diced onion and fresh mozz simply because they needed to be used. I'm a lousy roller (and had already made the aforementioned mistakes) so mine ended up being more stromboli like than rolled. We especially liked the garlic salt on top. I think this would be a great filling snack/meal for beer drinking and watching sports! THANKS Sanzoe for another winner!

I have been using Allrecipes for years and years. Most recipes look very good but I'm sorry this looks disgusting and I'm wondering why it was even posted. I would never ever try this.

What a delicious and fun recipe to make and to eat. I used a homemade pizza crust by duboo and it worked great with this recipe. I read the recipe and then read the review by lovestohost and used her suggestion of the cold spaghetti. I did not have any problems with the dough ripping. This came together quickly and baked up nicely. The taste was wonderful and the next time and there will be a next time I'm going to add a green pepper. Thanks sanzoe for sharing your recipe.

I used a file dough instead of cornbread easier to get flat plus closer to a bread taste. Key is to work with cold precooked products (leftover chilled pasta already sauced). If you'r like me and like to add extra ingredients to pasta (vegetables. meat chunks etc) all the better and you don't need to limit to just spaghetti style pasta and cooked pasta will do. Another great add is cheese like mozzarella or jack cheese to make all ingredients stick together better inside crust.

I made this for supper tonight and everyone loved it. Instead of meatballs I added cooked ground hamburger to my sauce. I will be making this again.

Definitely making again. Going to change the meatballs to Italian sausage. Easy to make.

Needed way more than 1/4 cup of sauce. So as its noted add sauce for taste. I used Hunts cheese and garlic spaghetti sauce (the whole can) 2 Betty crocker dry pizza crust (just add water) and only 12oz of spaghetti noodles.

I love the idea and the flavor but my experience with the construction was off. I made my own sauce my own meatballs and tried to make my own pizza dough. The dough was ruined by my math and I used Pillsbury for the first day. Thin crust Pillsbury dough was a nightmare - way too thin but the classic crust was better. However the braiding left too much dough on the top. The inner layer of dough on the top was sort of too raw so the recipe temp was off for my oven. After making this recipe into so much work I refused to let it be so so...SO I made pizza dough with my correct recipe and folded it more like a calzone. I have set my oven to 325 on convection bake and my spaghetti calzone was PERFECT. I love this initial idea and you could use any pasta recipe excess water removed inside the dough. My family loved it - including the picky kids.
