  • 1
    Cut mozzarella cheese into 1-inch cubes and set aside.
  • 2
    Place three shallow bowls beside each other, filling the first with flour, the second with the eggs and milk and the third with the breadcrumbs.
  • 3
    Roll each cheese cube in the flour, tapping off excess flour, then dip in egg mixture, then roll in breadcrumbs and place on a plate. Repeat with remaining cheese cubes until all are coated.
  • 4
    In a large skillet or saucepan, heat 2 inches of oil to 350°F (use a candy or deep-fry thermometer to gauge temperature). Set a large plate topped with a few paper towels off to the side.
  • 5
    Using a slotted spoon, lower a few cheese cubes at a time into the oil, making sure they stay separated while frying. Remove from oil using spoon after 1 minute or when the cubes are a golden brown and place on paper towels to drain. Let oil return to 350°F before making the next batch. Repeat until all cheese cubes are fried.
  • 6
    Heat pizza sauce in the microwave or on the stove top until warm; serve with warm, fried cheese balls.
