Preheat air fryer to 300 degrees F.

Cut two 9 x 15-inch rectangles of foil. Fold each into thirds widthwise. Form an X out of the foil; spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Divide meat mixture in half; form into 5 x 9-inch rectangles; forming one on top of the foil X. Create a shallow indent in meat on foil, allowing the edges to rise along edge of pan. Layer provolone and spinach leaves on top of meat along the center; staying about 1/2-inch away from edges. Cover completely with remaining meat mixture forming a domed top and sealing edges.

Using the foil; transfer the meatloaf to greased air fryer basket; tuck in ends of foil. Cover entire loaf with an additional piece of foil.

Air fry at 370 degrees F for 45 minutes. Spoon remaining pizza sauce over and air fry an additional 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
