  • Mozzarella Balls
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Green Olives
  • Black Olives


  • My mozzarella balls came in water so if yours do, make sure you drain first. Then you need to pull them out and set up the tray.
  • I find that a deviled egg holder is the perfect way to balance your cheese balls.
  • Fill up your entire tray.
  • Add some tomato sauce to a pastry bag or put in a baggy and snip the tinest bit off the bottom. Be careful because spahgetti sauce is runny and can come out quickly. You can also just use a spoon if you prefer.
  • Put a little bit on each ball, letting it drip down.
  • Cut your green olives in circles and your black olives up into tiny bits.
  • Add the black to the center of the green.
  • Place olives on top of your mozzarella ball till entire tray is done.
