Fix and freeze these moist little meat loaves packed with pizza flavor. They're great to reheat for an after-school snack or quick dinner on soccer night. My family likes to drizzle extra pizza sauce on top. —Susan Wollin, Marshall, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Optional: Additional pizza sauce and basil leaves

Directions

  2. Bake until meat is cooked through, 15-18 minutes. If desired, top with additional sauce and basil before serving.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat loaves in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through.
