My favorite recipe- MEATZA

The hardest thing for me to give up when going paleo was pizza. So I was THRILLED to discover the delicious paleo meal that is MEATZA. I hope you all love it as much as I do. This recipe makes about six slices, but we usually eat at least four (and sometimes all six...don't judge) as one meal. I make it a zillion different ways depending on which vegetables I have in the fridge/freezer, so mix it up as you please:



2 lbs grassfed ground beef*

1/2 can Muir Glen pizza sauce

1/2 diced bell pepper

1/2 diced red onion

2 cups of kale

Spices to taste (I don't measure too strictly, but I use about 2 tbsp each of oregano and basil and 1 tbsp each of garlic powder and red pepper flakes)



Preheat oven to 350. Don't bother to grease the pan unless you're using super lean ground beef. Dump the meat on to a baking sheet with whichever spices you're using, and (you're gonna get your hands dirty) mix the meat up with all the spices, then spread the meat out, sorta like dough, across the entire pan. Put it in the oven for 20 minutes. While the meat is cooking, saute the veggies over medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes. Pull the meat out and drain the grease off the pan (there will be a good bit). Don't panic- the "meat crust" will shrink up a good bit in the oven. Turn the oven to broil. Spread the pizza sauce over the meat, then spread the veggies on top of that. Put the meatza back in the oven under the broiler for five minutes. Remove, slice up, and enjoy. You're welcome.


*Other ground meats (turkey, veal, lamb, bison, etc) also work. Occasionally I'll mix chorizo (minus the casing) or some other nitrate/nitrite free sausage in with the meat crust. I've also made a "deep-dish" version of this in a cast-iron skillet.
