Meatza!

A friend from the gym posted several updates on facebook regarding Meatza… I could obviously use my common sense to figure out what this was… but I wanted to know the art of making Meatza and then I wanted to dive in and make some of my own. She sent me a recipe with great suggestions for how to cook the meat crust – how much to use, what toppings she had used, spices to include and if you’re allowing yourself dairy… go ahead and top it off with some mozzarella cheese! Well if you saw my post yesterday… wah wah wah on the cheese. BUT – I was super excited to have the taste of pizza that wouldn’t blow my 30 days outta the water. So – no crust made out of almond flour, no crazy gluten-free starch filled substitute flour. This recipe is legit. So as Jess said, there are 505, 000 ways to make Meatza – make it your own. But here are the basics:

2lbs of ground meat – seasoned to your liking, I used fresh oregano, rosemary, sea salt, pepper and garlic powder
To the seasoned meat add about a table spoon of grapeseed oil (i used truffle infused – get it here: OHH-LIO EXPRESS) and 1/4 cup of almond flour. Mix well.

On a large cookie sheet flatten the ground meat mixture until it cover the pan – it should be a little over 1/4 inch thick.

Bake in oven on 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Take the pan out of the oven and drain holding the meat crust with a spatula.

Top with your favorite pizza toppings. I used muir glen organic tomato sauce, organic divina olive tapenade, organic divina sliced roasted red peppers, mediterranean organic sun dried tomatoes and fresh sliced tomato from the garden!

Place back in the 350 degree oven for 10 minutes – I turned the oven off and let the meatza sit in the warm oven for about 5-10 more minutes. In my head, this helps it get a little crisp to the meat. Let it cool for a bout 5 minutes before cutting with pizza cutter.

This is a glorious plentiful recipe and you’ll have everything you need for a quick snack or a meal! Enjoy!
