Meatza!

Whoever came up with this idea is made of genius: A pizza crust made of ground beef. This pizza is low-carb, grain free, nut free, high in protein, and delicious.

Ingredients for the beef crust:

  • 1 pound ground beef (or your favourite ground meat)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 small finely chopped onion (I used white onion, but next time I think I would use green onions instead)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • Pepper

I didn’t add them to mine, but I think some finely diced sun-dried tomatoes would be a really great addition to this mixture. Make the mixture however you like it best!

Mix the cheese and spices together, and combine with egg, onions and ground meat.

Line a 9×9 inch baking dish wish tin foil and press the mixture down evenly with your fingers.

Bake the crust at 350F for 15-20 minutes. It will shrink quite a bit.

Carefully drain off the oil before you add your toppings.

Here’s the fun part; add whatever you like! Your favourite veggies, sausage, cheese, etc. I spread on a layer of lactose-free herb and garlic goat cheese:

…and then a layer of tomato sauce, and chopped mushrooms, basil, and black olives:

Crank the oven up to 425F or broil, and cook for another 10 minutes.

A pizza fit for a king. I think the guys over at Epic Meal Time would be pretty impressed with a beef-crust pizza. Have fun with this one!
