Pizza Meatloaf

Meatloaf and pizza come together in this delicious dinner recipe with pepperoni inside and cheese and pizza sauce on top!

I found two recipes for pizza meatloaf and made both with varying levels of success - aka the consistency and baking time weren't always the most accurate. I messed with the recipes until I reached one that really worked for me. I have had horrible luck with stuffing my meatloaf with cheese, so cheese is on top. Instead of using whole pepperonis and chopping them, I opted for mini pepperonis. They are way less of a headache. One of the recipes called for 4 eggs and sauce in the meatloaf mixture, I went with 2 eggs and no sauce in the mixture. The final result was definitely a keeper and the whole family truly loves this variation on meatloaf. All the elements of pizza are there and who wouldn't love meatloaf that tastes like pizza!

Grumpy's Honeybunch's Jalapeno Cheddar Meatloaf sounds like it'll taste like a jalapeno popper and I am all about that. I cannot wait to try it. I love making foods that aren't pizza have pizza flavors. These Italian Pizza Burgers are one of our favorite burgers.
