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. If you’re not an idiot like me and doing a detox or Whole30, 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
1 Onion, diced

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.
