Two of your favorite comfort foods collide in this healthy mash-up of pizza and meatloaf. Fast, healthy and naturally gluten free, these pepperoni pizza meatloaf muffins are always a hit.
We make meatloaf muffins at least once a week. Quick-cooking, versatile and always a family-favorite, my boys absolutely love this healthy and easy dinner recipe.
Once I saw how much my kids loved my Cheeseburger Meatloaf Muffins, I decided to create a pizza-inspired version topped with shredded mozzarella and bite-sized pepperoni pieces. Bell peppers, sausage or ham would also be great on these muffin-sized meatloaves.
If you don’t have ground beef on hand, ground turkey or chicken would work just as well. The best part? These pepperoni pizza meatloaf muffins are 100% gluten free! A great alternative to the traditional slice of pie.
Your fork is waiting.
