  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 green pepper, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup white onion, diced
  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1.5 tablespoons mined garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2/3 cup pizza sauce, divided, plus more for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the egg and beat it. Then add in all ingredients except for half of the pizza sauce (1/3 cup reserved for putting on top of the meatloaf)
  3. Using your hands, combine all of the ingredients together until the egg, spices, vegetables and flour is evenly mixed with the meat, do not over-mix or it drys out the meat
  4. Add the meat mixture into your meatloaf pan or form it into a loaf on a baking sheet
  5. Place it into the oven and bake for 60 minutes, or until the internal temp is 155 degrees F.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before trying to slice it
  7. Serve it with a bit of additional warmed pizza sauce over each slice


  • Cassava flour can be used in place of almond flour for the binder if you have a nut allergy
  • If not wanting this to be 100% paleo/Whole30, you can add pepperoni to the top before baking, and add cheese during the last 10 minutes of baking (can also add 1/3 cup parmesan to the meatloaf while mixing)
