 2 Nature's Yoke eggs
 1 tsp parsley
 1 tsp Italian seasoning
 ¾ tsp black pepper
 ¼ tsp cumin
 ¼ tsp paprika
 ½ tsp red pepper flakes
 1 ⅛ tsp salt
 4 garlic cloves, minced
 1 cup plain bread crumbs
 ¾ cup milk
 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
 2 lbs ground beef
 ½ cup pizza sauce
 2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
 ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
 fresh basil chiffonade* or dried basil

Preheat oven to 375 F.


In a large bowl, combine eggs, seasonings, garlic, bread crumbs, milk, Parmesan cheese and ground beef. Mix together until all ingredients are well blended.


Shape meat mixture into a round loaf, 9 inches in diameter or a little larger. Transfer the loaf to a roasting pan with a rack.


Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the middle of the loaf registers 160 degrees F. and juices run clear. Remove from oven.


Spread meatloaf with pizza sauce. Top with sliced tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with dried basil or fresh basil chiffonade. Bake about 5 minutes longer, or until cheese is melted. Transfer to pizza pan or serving platter. Cut into wedges to serve.

*To make fresh basil chiffonade, stack the basil leaves and roll them up. Using a sharp knife, slice the roll into very thin strips.
