How to Make Pizza Meatloaf – Crustless Cheesy Meatloaf with Potatoes

Pizza Mini Loaf

Anyone that loves pizza will enjoy this flavorful recipe for my pizza meatloaf because it conjures up thoughts of a crustless pizza!

You’ll make three mini pizza meatloaves from ground turkey (or if you prefer ground beef) and stuff them with any leftover mashed potatoes you may have in the refrigerator.  Making my recipe for this crustless pizza meatloaf is an excellent way to get rid of those leftovers and the family won’t even know they’re inside the yummy sauced loaves topped with shredded Mozarella cheese.

Out of one pound of ground turkey or beef, I like to form three mini loaves.  This amount and the size I use makes it easier to stuff.  If these are too big for your little ones, I suggest just cut slices!

If you want something different to make for dinner that is easy as well as delicious, then I hope that you want to try my pizza meatloaf with mashed potatoes. Please also feel free to share it with your family and friends and do come back to my blog for more.

Pizza Meatloaf

1 pound of ground turkey (ground beef, if you prefer)
1/2 cup chopped onion, divided in half
3 cloves of chopped garlic
1 teaspoon dried sage
1-1/4  teaspoons salt
2/3 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup mashed potatoes (divided by fourths)
3/4 cup shredded Mozarella cheese (divided by fourths)
1  jar of Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce (24 oz.)
2 tablespoons of olive oil or canola oil

Brown 1/4 cup of chopped onion and garlic in the oil until golden brown.In your mixing bowl, add the meat, the other 1/4 cup of chopped onion, oatmeal, sage and salt.

Form into three big balls that you pat down enough to put 1/4 cup of the mashed potatoes inside. Roll up and repeat the same way for the other two balls.

Take your finished meat rolls and add to your browned onions and garlic.  Brown them on both sides before adding the spaghetti sauce with tomato and basil plus a teaspoon of sugar.

Cook on the stovetop for about an hour.  Near the end of the hour, add 1/4 of shredded Mozarella cheese to each mini loaf.  Let melt on top and then serve.

ENJOY!
