Paleo Pizza Meatloaf

My friend Kelly decided on a whim to join us on the Whole30.  Her daughter who is almost 6 years old is also doing the Whole30.  When they were out driving the other day her daughter asked, "Mommy, why isn't pizza healthy?", as she looked longingly out the window at the nearby Dominoes.  With that inspiration I decided to capture the essence of a pizza in a healthy and super delicious meatloaf.  The best part is all of the hidden vegetables that even my picky little men didn't detect.  And I am not a fan of peppers or mushrooms, but I loved this meatloaf!  So yummy and super satisfying!  Even better, this pizza is totally Whole30 approved!

Paleo Pizza Meatloaf

2 onions, minced
1 pepper, minced
6 baby bella mushrooms, minced
4 eggs
2/3 cup almond flour
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tsp parsley flakes
3/4 tsp anise seed
1 tsp italian seasoning
4 lbs ground beef
3.8 oz can sliced black olives
15 oz can muir glenn pizza sauce (or whatever else pizza sauce suits your fancy)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In pan saute onions and peppers in fat of your choice (I used ghee).  Once softened add mushrooms and cook 2 minutes more.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Mix together eggs, almond flour, and seasonings.  Add beef and mix well.  Add sauteed vegetables and olives and mix well.  Form into loaf in a 9x13 inch pan.  Coat completely with pizza sauce.  Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until cooked through.  Serve and enjoy!
