Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
Combine the bread and milk in a large bowl and soak for 10 minutes. Add the turkey, eggs, cheese, pancetta, onion, garlic, ketchup, parsley, oregano, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Mix well with your hands. Shape into an 8-inch-by-5-inch loaf and transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 325 degrees F and drizzle more ketchup all over the top of the loaf. Bake until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads 165 degrees F, about 45 minutes. Let the meat loaf rest for 10 minutes, then transfer to a platter and serve.
