Pizza Meat Balls

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 egg
1 cup Japanese bread crumbs (panko)
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh chopped garlic
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Italian seasoning
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut 1/4" cubes

2 cans tomato sauce (15 oz each)
15 ounces crushed tomatoes
Italian seasoning to taste
1 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh chopped garlic

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a flat baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl add ground beef, onion powder, egg, panko crumbs, garlic, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, couple dashes of Italian seasoning. Mix thoroughly.

Shape into 1-inch balls. Push in to the mixture a cube of cheese. Reshape the meatball. Place on lined baking sheet. Do this until all of the meatballs have been formed. Bake in the oven until browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. If the cheese cube that was used is too big it will melt out of the meatball.

In a crock pot, on medium heat add the tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, Italian seasonings (to taste) onion, and garlic. Keep hot while the meatballs cook. Add the meatballs once they are done cooking.

Serve with toothpicks. The sauce can be heated on stove top.
