  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Arrange the meatballs on a nonstick baking tray. Bake in the oven for 10 mins.
  2. Remove from the oven and put half a mozzarella pearl followed by an olive half on top of each meatball. Return to the oven for 5 mins, or until the cheese has just melted and the meatballs are cooked through.
  3. Mix 3 tbsp ketchup with the chilli sauce to serve as a dip. Use the extra ketchup to pipe ‘veins’ on the cheese and to fill the middle of the olives to make pupils.
