In the Kitchen with Wild Will

Meatzza Pizza

Ah pizza. My favorite food group, yes I said group. There are so many different kinds. However…as we know pizza is not the sort of thing you can have a daily basis if want to live lean and trim. No fear Wild Will is here. This weeks In the Kitchen features a Meatzza Pizza. A Meatzza is when the crust is replaced by a layer of ground beef (95% lean of course). By replacing the dough crust with a meat crust you drastically cut down on the carbs. Meatzza 2

Be sure to check out the accompanying directional video.

Ingredients

1lb of lean ground beef (You can do ground chicken or turkey if you like)

½ can of Organic pizza sauce ( I prefer the organic because they don’t add sugar)

1 egg

The remaining ingredients are up to you.  Just like any other type of pizza you get to decide what to put on it. Your Meatzza can have onions, turkey pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms etc. It’s your Meatzza so make it your own. Now for macro purposes I am only going to include the top 3 main ingredients. In the directional video I personally used turkey pepperoni and part skim mozzarella cheese.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place beef and egg into a mixing bowl. Feel free to add anytime of spice you would like. In the video I use basic season all but for you more adventurous types. Go NUTS!! Have fun, its pizza remember.

Using your hands blend the beef and egg together

Grab a backing dish and place the beef mixture into the dish

Spread the meat (crust) out evenly throughout the dish. Be sure to get all the edges and keep the crust even. If the crust is uneven it will not bake properly.

Place dish in the oven

Here is where it changes depending on your taste. I like beef medium rare so I only cook for 20-30 minutes. If you prefer more of a well done crust you will want to cook for 40-50 mins.

Pull out the Meatzza and drain all the fat out of the dish.

Turn the oven to 450 degrees

This is when you place all of your toppings onto the crust. Add the sauce and whatever toppings you have chosen for your Meatzza.

Place back in the oven for 10 minutes to allow for your toppings to bake.

Pull out your dish and let it cool for 10-15 mins.

Cut and serve.

I can’t stress this enough. It’s your Meatzza have fun with the toppings. Make it your own. Get the whole family involved.
