  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Combine the pork, onion, capers, olives, and flour in a bowl, add the egg, and season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix thoroughly, then form into 12-153/4in (2cm) balls.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the meatballs for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Drain, transfer to a baking dish, and set aside.
  3. Combine the tomatoes, garlic, and paprika in a saucepan, season with salt and pepper, then cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the tomato sauce over the meatballs and bake for 20 minutes until bubbly-hot. Serve hot.
