Personal Pizza-Stuffed Grilled Meat Loaves

This post may contain affiliate links. For more info please read the full disclosure statement

Ingredients:

1 1/2 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon pizza seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1/3 cup finely chopped onion (1 small)
1/3 cup chopped pitted ripe olives
3 slices (1 oz each) mozzarella cheese, cut into strips

Directions:

1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, mix ground beef, bread crumbs, milk, pizza seasoning, salt and garlic. Shape mixture into 12 (4-inch) sausage-shaped rolls. Flatten each to 1/4-inch thickness to form patties.

2. In medium bowl, mix 1/4 cup of the pizza sauce, the onion and olives. Spoon about 1 tablespoon mixture evenly onto 6 patties, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top with remaining patties; pinch edges to seal.

3. Place meat loaves on grill; cover grill. Cook with medium heat 10 to 14 minutes, turning several times, until thermometer inserted in meat loaves reads 160°F (avoid inserting in filling). Brush meat loaves with remaining 1/4 cup pizza sauce and top each with cheese strips; cook 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted.

  1. Oh I LIKE this one ……. I bet you could use all kinds of pizza “toppings” as the filling. Olives wouldn’t make it here (unless it was just for me) but I bet diced thin sliced pepperoni would be very interesting! I am going to be experimenting with this recipe.
