Wasn't quite sure about the pizza sauce, but this was really, really good and definitely still meatloaf but with a nice change of pace. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing it.

Followed your recipe right on down & had a great tasting meatloaf as a result! We particularly enjoyed the cheeses that were included here as well as the sauce ~ Very, very nice! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]
