Ciao Bella Venison Pizziola

Anna Sciancalepore Antoniello


This dish can also be made with beef so don't panic! LOL

My husband hunts so we usually have some venison in our freezer. It's all by skill and chance so some years we have more and some years we have less. This happens to be our skimpy year. LOL

None the less this recipe tastes fabulous with venison or beef.

You can also make this with your favorite meatball reicpe too. Just make patties instead.
