Treat your family for dinner tonight with this simple cheesy pizza stuffed meatloaf. A dinner that is guaranteed to have them racing for seconds.

Sometimes you need a change, and this cheesy pizza meatloaf is just that!

My kids aren't big on meatloaf for dinner, so I had to come up with something that would entice them to sit down and eat. Turns out, loading something up with cheesy goodness and then popping some pepperoni slices on top can do that...and they actually enjoyed it!

With so many different flavors out there, who says you can't add things to the classic meatloaf recipe so that your kids can enjoy it too. Maybe next week I'll give it a "cheeseburger" theme!
