I’ve had this recipe saved for forever, but I’ve had a major aversion to beef since being pregnant, so it took me awhile to get the guts to make it.  I still wasn’t all that excited about it, but I was pleasantly surprised after I tasted it.  I mean, the idea of combining meatloaf and pizza is pretty smart, after all. 

Meatloaf Pizza
Recipe from HERE – I tweeked it a little

Ingredients:

For the meatloaf “crust:”

  • 1 pound lean gound beef
  • 1/3 cup quick oats
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs (I used Panko)
  • 1 egg
  • salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder
  • a few Tbsp of pizza sauce

For the toppings, I used:

  • Pizza sauce
  • Fresh mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Green olives
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Green peppers
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • More italian seasoning

Instructions:

  1. Combine meatloaf ingredients in a bowl.  Line a pizza pan or baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.  Press the meat into a thin layer on top of the foil to make your “crust.”
  2. Spread meat “crust” with sauce and pizza toppings.
  3. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.

This was quite good, but next time I would up the seasonings in the meatloaf layer because it was a tad bland.  I served my “pizza” with garlic bread (gotta have some carbs!) and it turned out to be a tasty meal.  My one tip is to make sure you use the foil, or else you will have this cemented onto your pan!
