Check out my gluten free, vegan cauliflower pizza crust. And I’m over her like oh hey I just made a crust out of MEAT! If you think this is a great idea, welcome to my blog. Let’s be friends!
This pizza is guaranteed to turn meatloaf haters into meatloaf lovers! Feel free to use your favorite toppings. Plus because it is not as thick as a traditional meatloaf it cooks up in just 30 minutes! Perfect for weeknight dinners!

- Making a mini version of these meatloaves would also be awesome! Place into a mini muffin pan, and cook for 15-20 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 160 degrees.
- If you like your pizza spicy add ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
