Meatloaf Pizza

Ok, I know this sounds weird.  This is a combo of my husband’s two favorite foods.  He kept mentioning how awesome he thought meatloaf pizza would be.  I figured meatloaf and potatoes are good, so it might work, so for his birthday I gave it a try.  I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out.  So don’t knock it before you try it.

First I made the meatloaf, you can make your own or use my recipe.  You can cook it with the sauce or without, it’s good either way.  Remember you can make adjustments according to your preferences, because these measurements are estimates.

Ingredients:

1/2 lb of ground meat

1 egg

1 Tbsp dried onion/ 1/4 c onion

1 tsp season salt

1 c oats

Directions:

mix together all the ingredients.  Set oven to 400 degrees and make one loaf in a bread pan for 35 minutes.

Pizza Dough:

Ingredients:

1 cup warm water

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons olive or canola oil

3 cups bread flour {give or take 1/2 cup…depending on the heat & humidity}

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl stir yeast and sugar into warm water. .Pour in salt, oil and half the flour and mix.

Once that flour is incorporated, start adding flour in bit by bit until you get the pizza dough to the consistency you want: slightly tacky, but when you touch it it doesn’t stick to your hands. Then knead for 8 minutes.

The dough should be smooth and easy to work with. And the bowl should be clean!

Lightly grease the bowl & the dough so it doesn’t dry out, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise 1-2 hours.

I use a pizza stone but if you don’t have one a cookie pan or the back of a cake pan work too.  I spread cornmeal across it to keep the dough from sticking.

Sauce:

1/2 can of tomato sauce

2 tsp mustard

1/4 c brown sugar

 

Directions

Spread the sauce on the spread out pizza dough, then crumble up the meatloaf and spread it around then spread 2 cups of cheese over all of it.  Put in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
