Meatza

Meatza, in case you haven’t heard of it, is the primal (or Paleo, or hunter/gatherer) version of pizza. A pretty tasty meal especially when you are craving tradional pizza.

First, make a meatloaf kind of mixture: Ground beef (grass-fed, of course), egg, salt, pepper, Italian spices, and some almond meal (to replace bread crumbs).  Blend it all together and spread out thinly on parchment paper on a ridged cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes until the meat is done.  Pour off the liquid/fat.

Next, spread marinara or pesto sauce over the surface, and top it with toppings of your choice.  This time husband’s will be pepperoni, onions, and mozzarella; mine will be black olive, organic baby spinach, pepperoni, onion, and Daiya cheese.  Put under broiler for a few minutes watching carefully.
By the way, if you are wondering what the heck Daiya cheese is, it is a non-dairy, non-rice, non-soy “cheese”.
Below is husband’s, then the next picture is mine; ready to eat! Super delish!
By the way, the leftovers are great! This is quick and easy, with very little to clean up.  Meatza would be great with a salad, but would also be a balanced meal if enough vegetables were used as toppings.
Another quick thought.  Just as I was ready to post this I had an idea.  These would probably be great as appetizers! What if you made a bunch of meatballs on a cookie sheet, flattened them out into little rounds, and proceeded as above.  I am looking forward to trying this soon.
