This was good but we thought it could have used more seasoning. I followed the recipe other then I used italian bread crumbs instead of the fresh. We all enjoyed this. Made for Fall PAC 2009.

*Made for PAC Fall 2007* This was a nice change from my traditional meatloaf recipe. I thought that maybe a little more seasoning was in order to really bring out the "pizza" taste. Next time I will use Italian Seasoned breadcrumbs and cut back to 1 cup as it was a bit firmer than we are used to. Thanks for sharing. Nick's Mom
