Pizza Meatloaf

I was going to make Pizza Pork Chops with this recipe, but then I found some ground pork and I decided to try something new.

1 lb ground pork (not pork sausage, plain pork)
1 lb ground turkey
2 TB balsamic vinegar
1 TB dried parsley 
1.5 tsp garlic powder 
1 tsp onion powder 
1 tsp dried basil 
1 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp paprika 
3/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp fennel 
1/4 tsp oregano 
salt to taste 
3 eggs
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
3/4 cup bread crumbs

2 large roma tomato, diced
1/2 small sweet onion, minced
1/4 cup fresh basil*
2 TB fresh oregano*
1 clove garlic minced

1 cup shredded mozzarella

* Fresh would be BEST, I had to use dried,  1.5 TB basil, 2 tsp oregano. It was still very tasty of course but fresh would be so much better!

Combine pork, turkey and seasonings with eggs, cheese and bread crumbs. Mix well but dont OVER mix.

Place in a greased meatloaf pan.

Allow flavors to mingle in the fridge for at least an hour prior to cooking.

Preheat oven to 400 and allow loaf to sit at room temp for 15 minutes.

Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes. 

Combine tomatoes, onion, basil, oregano and garlic. Toss well.

When the loaf has reached temperature pour tomato mixture over the top, and top with cheese.

Bake 10-15 minutes more until the topping is bubbly and melted and the internal temp is at least 165.

Allow to set 10 minutes before slicing.
