The Best Pizza Meatloaf

We love pizza and meatloaf, so we've been working to perfect the Best Pizza Meatloaf!  Everyone in our family loves this meal because the meat is so tender, the cheese and pepperoni add great flavor and the sauce keeps the meatloaves so moist!  #pizzaparty #meatloaf

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 ounces package seasoned croutons
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1 can pizza sauce divided
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup mini pepperoni

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a baking sheet or cover with foil.
  • Beat egg and milk with mixer until smooth.  Add croutons; mix well.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Beat until there are no crunchy pieces left
  • Add Italian sausage, ground pork, cheddar cheese and 1/2 can pizza sauce.  Mix well.
  • Divide mixture in half.  Divide each half into quarters to get a total of 8 mini meatloaves.  Cup hands and shape each portion of meat into a mini meatloaf.  
  • Place on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.  Remove from oven and use a meat thermometer.  
  • The finished internal temperature should be 160 degrees F.
    Cooking time will vary by size of the meatloaf. My meatloaves are typically 150 degrees F at 25 minutes. So I add a tablespoon of pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni to the top of each meatloaf and return to the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
