Big news, you guys! I’ll be having Kristin, of Paleo Trail fame, on the blog for a little Q&A sesh. If you’re not familiar with Paleo Trail, it’s a quality-rating system of food journaling that’s awesome for those of us without the time, energy, or give-a-sh*t-ability to track calories or micro-nutrients or god-only-knows what else. She has an incredible story, too, so get excited!!
What questions would you like to ask her? (I know, I ALWAYS need something). It can be anything…about her, her journey, her amazing program, etc…just leave a comment or shoot me a note!
So for the bazillionth time I have to apologize for my crap photography. I’ve tried, you guys, I really have. I’m just too poor for a DSLR, too busy to get pictures done during the daylight hours, and too scatter-brained to compose a nice-looking picture. My new strategy is to just oogle culinary photos on Pinterest and try to make mine look like them. Except they don’t. And ya know what’s bad, too? I take better photos on my phone than on my real camera. *Sigh*
It’s OK, though, because this pizza meatloaf kinda speaks for itself. It’s like a MEATZA on crack. You can even put cheese on it. Like, some fresh mozz or shaved Parmesano Reggiano. Please and thank you.
- 2 lbs Ground Beef
- 1 lb Ground Pork
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Onion, diced
- 1 Bell Pepper, diced
- 1 c Sliced Mushrooms
- 1 can (14 oz) Tomato Sauce
- 1 T Italian Seasoning
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 pkg Applegate Farms Pepperoni
- Mix the meat, eggs, veggies, seasonings, and half the can of tomato sauce together until just combined.
- Shape into a loaf in a large baking dish. Top with remaining tomato sauce.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and top with pepperoni. Return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or until the pepperoni is crisped around the edges.
This looks so good! My teenagers might even like it. Thanks!
Absolutely LOVE this recipe! Completely satisfied my craving for pizza! I did add a little more sauce as I like my pizza extra saucy. This is definitely going to be a regular at my house!!!!! Thanks for the great addition!
Awesome! I’m so glad you liked it!!

This is a great recipe, fancy photography be damned. Thank you for sharing this. I’ve made the following modifications:
-Add three jalapenos
-Use more seasoning and sauce
-Top with sauce after removing from the oven, not before.
I even omit the mushrooms. If you like mushrooms, go for it, but the meatloaf is delicious without them too.

My little bro doesn’t even eat veggies (he’s 15) and he gobbled up 2 servings of this!!! My market was out of nitrate free pepperoni so I subbed salami on top and it was still delish. I just ate the leftovers for breakfast : )
Awesome! I’m so glad you guys liked it…my sister is a notoriously bad veggie eater and this works every time, too
