I am bumping this recipe to the top tonight because, WOW, look what Laurie from the Mansfield News-Journal country did:).  She made this recipe for “pizza loaf” and sent me this awesome photo.  Laurie wrote that she “served the pizza loaf with Italian green beans and red potatoes, a deviled egg and individual apple pies baked in the apple.  We really liked it!.”   I want to go to Laurie’s house for supper!

Amish homemade pizza loaf

 

This dish is very typical of the type that Amish cooks like to either invent or embrace: hearty, pizza-y, and easy.  Plus it feeds a family of 6 or 8 people.  So if you’re looking for something hearty and easy, pizza loaf may be for you! (If you do try this, please take a photo and share with us here).  This recipe comes to me from an Amish woman near Charm,Ohio.

1 1 /2 pounds ground beef

8 ounces tomato sauce

1 /4 cup chopped onions

1 beaten egg

3 /4 cup quick oats

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 1 /2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1 /4 teaspoon pepper

6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

Combine all ingredients except cheese.  Pat half of mixture into a lightly greased oblong pan.  Put cheese (reserve a few tablespoons) on top then cover with other half of beef mixture.  Bake uncovered at 350 for 1 hour.  Sprinkle reserved cheese on top a few minutes before serving.

  1. My mother made this for use as kids. But after cooking it she would hollow out a loaf of french bread and put the mixer in it. Then add cheese and bake till the cheese melted and the bread toasted. It’s so good !

    • That is what caught my attention-the apple pies baked in the apples! The pizza loaf sounds about like our basic meatloaf.

    • I agree that we need to convince Laurie to let you post the individual apple pie in the apple recipe! I’ve never even heard of that, but they look scrumptious in the photo, as well as the other dishes.
