Pizza Mini Meatloaf

A close up shot of baked mini pizza meatloaves with golden brown melted cheese on a foil-lined baking pan.

A quirky combination of pizza and meatloaf, this unique pizza mini meatloaf is a unique lunch option. Small meatloaves are cooked, then topped with pizza sauce and cheese. They are as fun to look at as they are to eat. 

There is a lot of flexibility on how these are cooked including a camp oven, smoker, or enclosed grill. The key is being able to get up to a baking temperature to cook the mini meatloaves all the way through. You can also use your favorite type of cheese to top the pizza meatloaves.

You can cook these in a mini-meatloaf pan for a more traditional shape. If you prefer round loaves, you can cook them in empty tuna cans. They can also be made free-formed if you don’t have any equipment.

Ingredients

Meatloaf

  • 2 pounds ground beef beef mince
  • 1 cup cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 6 slices pepperoni diced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

To Serve

  • 1 can (8 ounce) pizza sauce

Meatloaf

  • Preheat the camp oven, smoker, or closed gas grill to 375 degrees F (180 degrees C).
