Jodi’s Pizza Meatloaf

We really shouldn’t celebrate moms just one day of the year. Every day I am thankful for my mom, but I am not always good at showing it. Mom taught me so much of what I love and most of it I learned being by her side and helping in all her work. Growing up, I knew Mom was a great cook, baker, gardener and canner, but when my dad passed away in high school, Mom’s true strength and perseverance brought us through.

There are so many things I can be thankful for with Mom, especially the endless love and support she gives me daily. Food was always a part of daily life, but Sundays were special. After church, lunch was often what came to be known as Mom’s favorite meal: meatloaf, baked potatoes and green beans. While we didn’t always have pizza meatloaf, it was a treat when we did. So this Mother’s Day, Mom and I are reminiscing and sharing the recipe with you!

Jodi's Pizza Meatloaf
  1. 1 pound ground pork
  2. 1 pound ground beef
  3. 1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
  4. 1 egg beaten
  5. 1/2 cup diced onion
  6. 2 cups prepared pizza sauce, divided
  7. 1/4 cup chopped basil
  8. 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  9. 1 teaspoons salt
  10. 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, reserving 1 cup of the pizza sauce for later. Using hands or a wooden spoon, mix the ingredients until they are evenly combined.
  3. Spray a baking pan (a sheet pan works well) with nonstick baking spray and shape a loaf roughly 4 inches tall and 12 inches long.
  4. Pour half of the reserved sauce on top of the loaf, spreading over the top.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until browned and cooked though, 50-60 minutes. The meatloaf should register 160 degrees on an instant read thermometer.
  6. Remove from oven and pour the rest of the pizza sauce over the loaf. If a pizza-style finish is desired, grate 4 ounces of mozzarella on top.
  7. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. Then slice and serve.
