1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/4 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Let's get Cooking...
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, breadcrumbs, garlic, oregano, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, egg, olive oil, salt and pepper. Form mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls, and place a cube of mozzarella cheese in the center of each.
Separate each pizza dough into 4 pieces. In the center of each, add a meatball and top with a spoonful of marinara sauce and a sprinkle of mozzarella. Wrap dough around filling, and arrange dough balls in a cast-iron skillet. Sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella, parsley and Parmesan.
Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Pull apart and enjoy.
