Monday Jan 13, 2020

In our humble opinion, the meatball sub is the closest thing to a gift sent by the heavens to make us smile every day. The delicious combination of pizza sauce, melty mozzarella cheese, and tangy meatballs are like an overwhelming gourmet experience that almost brings tears to our eyes. No, we’re not overreacting here, the meatball sub truly is the best one out there.

But, what if we told you there is a way to upgrade your favorite meatball sub and take it to the next level? When you order a meatball sub from Hungry Howie’s®, the possibilities are endless. Keep reading to find out what we mean.

The More Toppings the Better

Your traditional meatball sub comes with three key ingredients: pizza sauce, mozzarella, and meatballs. All wrapped in toasty pizza dough to complete this masterpiece. But, you can add even more toppings to take your sub to the next level. Here are some ideas we think will go with your oven-baked sub perfectly.

Mushrooms – To complement the tangy flavor of the pizza sauce.

Sausage – If you want to add more protein and deliciousness to your meatball sub, then what's a better topping to achieve that than sausage?

Mild Pepper – We don’t know about you, but mild peppers are married to pizza in our opinion, so it just seems natural to add them as toppings here too.

Jalapeno – Take it up a notch when you add some spice and intensify all the flavors in this sub with spicy jalapenos.

Green Pepper – The crisp and fresh flavors of green peppers are the perfect addition to the melty cheese and tangy sauce.

Meatballs – Even an entire meatball sub can use more meatballs, so why not add a few more to make it the ultimate sub ever?

If you’re feeling exotic, you can also add pineapple toppings. Make it a mixed sandwich with some steak or grilled chicken. Add an extra kick with red onion rings to add that sharp onion taste we all love. Last, but not least, remember you can add extra mozzarella and parmesan cheese to make it extra melty and cheesy. Throw in some butter to make your pizza dough taste heavenly.

On the Side Ideas

Your upgrades don’t end with the toppings. You also have to add something on the side. In this case, we have two options that some love and some don’t. The easiest and obvious choice is to order a side of sub sauce so you can dip each bite into a load of sauce. Or, you can order mayo on the side, which can be a controversial topic, but those who love it swear by the combination. We’ll let you decide on that one.

Your Turn

With all this new information, you’ll never look at your meatball sub order the same way again. We believe you should never hold back when it comes to elevating the flavors in your meatball sub, but if you want to keep it classic, please know we understand. Our meatball oven-baked sub is just as delicious in its original form.
