Pinwheel Pizza Loaf

Rated as 4.29 out of 5 Stars

"I've kept this recipe since I first tried it in high school. This unusual dish looks like a meat loaf but has real pizza appeal--it's especially popular with young people. Many neighbors have called to get the recipe after their kids tried it at my house. --Rhonda Touchet Jennings, Louisiana"

  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over eggs and mix well. On a piece of heavy-duty foil, pat beef mixture into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Cover with ham and cheese to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and peeling away foil while rolling. Seal seam and ends.
  2. Place the loaf seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Top with pizza sauce. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 1-1/4 hours or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

I made this for the first time tonight and my whole family LOVED it! Instead of salt and pepper, I used a packet of Lipton's Onion Soup mix and left out the deli meat. As for the baking time, it...

Everyone who tries this meatloaf raves about it. My dad ate half the recipe the first time I made it. I use proscuitto instead of deli ham.
