By the way...this also makes a great breakfast (or lunch) the next morning, so don't worry about leftovers!
Meatza "Crust" Recipe
2.5 pounds of 80% grass fed ground beef
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp. dried Basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder or granulated garlic
1/4 tsp coarse ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine all the spices and mix well, then sprinkle on the meat, add the egg and mix in with your hands. Be sure to get it mixed in well, but being careful not to over mix the meat. Spread into a jelly roll pan, patting out with your hands to get it to fit. Bake for 10 minutes and then carefully drain off all the grease. By the way, don't be surprised when your "crust" shrinks, it will not stay the same size as the pan, this is normal. Spread with your pre-made pizza sauce and top with your desired toppings. Bake on the top rack of your oven for about 10-15 more minutes. The meat will form a stiff base, which when cut you will be able to pick up and eat just like pizza. My kids LOVED this! Let them help by putting on their own toppings or patting the meat into the pan (just be sure to have them wash their hands after). I find when they are involved in the preparation they are much more excited about eating something different. Have fun!
Mom's Pizza Sauce
1-8 oz can organic tomato sauce
1- 6 oz can organic tomato paste
2 tsp dried minced onion
1 tsp. dried basil
3/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder or granulated garlic
Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pot and simmer not he lowest setting while making he crust.
For Toppings I used what I had around:
Sliced and chopped Zucchini, fresh parsley, red peppers, red onion, olives, and spinach. Maybe some mushrooms, pineapple, good no nitrate pepperoni, bacon, tomatoes, etc. would be good. You can really use just about anything on here.
