Pizza meatloaf

This is a family favorite and even my Dad would eat it.  He HATED pizza.

  • 1-2 pound lean ground beef (depending on how many you're feeding)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce, divided
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (dried dices of leftover bread then roll over them with a rolling pin to crush), panko crumbs, or use pre-made dressing crumbs like the kind you use on salads and crush them with a rolling pin, too)
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1/2 to 1 whole teaspoon Italian seasoning mix (I use a blend from the local organic health food)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 8 ounces (1 cup) shredded or sliced Mozzarella or Provolone cheese, divided


  • Mix together eggs, bread crumbs, salt, oregano, parsley, Italian seasonings, parmesan, and 1/3 cup pizza sauce together until well combined.
  • Add in ground beef and gently combine, being careful to not overmix your meatloaf mixture.
  • Roll with rolling pin into a rectangle (about 1 inch thick") and top with 2/3 cup mozzarella or provolone cheese.
  • Pat meat into a loaf shape, around cheese (so the cheese is in the middle, not the edges).
  • Place meat on broiler pan or into a loaf pan and top with remaining sauce and cheese.  If you use a loaf pan, you may have to pour off grease, periodically, depending on the quality of meat used.
  • Bake at 350 to 375 for 1 hour, checking often.
