So we have tried pizza with an almond flour crust and we have made our own breakfast pizza with an egg crust, but a meatza, this was a first. Last week we had make your own meatza night. What is meatza? Pizza with a meat crust. For my little carnivores, they devoured it. For me, it was a lot of meat, but sometimes we all have to make sacrafices for our kids, right?
I made the “crust” during the day so that when it was time for dinner, everyone just needed to add their toppings and bake.
Make Your Own Meatza
Prep Time: 10 minutes for crust, 10 minutes for toppings
Cook Time: 10 – 12 minutes crust, 5 minutes for toppings
Servings: 6 ish
Ingredients for crust:
3 lbs. ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion or scallions
- 1 tbsp. powdered garlic or garlic infused olive oil
- 1 tbsp. dried oregano
- 1 tbsp. dried parsley
- 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
- 1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup flaxseed meal or almond meal if you don’t have it
- 3 eggs
Topping options: (the list is endless, here are some suggestions)
- tomato sauce
- sundried tomatoes
- Combine all of the crust ingredients into a large bowl.
- Mix well with your hands, get down and dirty with it.
- Take one large pizza dish or several smaller cake or pie dishes and coat with olive oil.
- Spread the meat out evenly on the dish(es).
- Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for about 10 – 12 minutes, better a little underdone than overdone as the crust will bake some more once the toppings are on.
- My crust were a little fatty, so I removed them from the pans, blotted them with paper towels and put them in the frig to cool.
- When it is time for the toppings, place the crust back in the dishes and go nuts.
- We had this on a Tuesday night, typically egg night, which is why Noah and Jeremy suggested adding eggs to the meatza.
- Once you’re creations are finished, place back in the oven at 375 degrees for about 5 minutes.
- Slice with a pizza slicer and serve immediately!
