Meatza! Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Meatza! which belongs to the Beef recipe category.
- 1 pounds (680 g) ground beef or pound (340 g) each ground beef and
- Italian-style sausage
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano or Italian seasoning (optional)
- 8 ounces (220 ml) sugar-free pizza sauce
- Parmesan or Romano cheese (optional)
- 8 ounces (225 g) shredded mozzarella
- Toppings (peppers, onions, mushrooms, or whatever you like)
- Olive oil (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350F (180C, or gas mark 4).
In a large bowl and with clean hands, combine the meat with the onion, garlic, and oregano or Italian seasoning (if using).
Pat the meat mixture out in an even layer in a 9 12-inch (23 30-cm) baking pan.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and set broiler to high.
When the meat comes out, it will have shrunk a fair amount because of the grease cooking off.
Pour off the grease and spread the pizza sauce over the meat.
Sprinkle the Parmesan or Romano cheese on the sauce (if using) and then distribute the shredded mozzarella evenly over the sauce.
Top with whatever you like: green peppers, banana peppers, mushrooms, olives, or anchovies.
I love broccoli on pizza, and thawed frozen broccoli "cuts" work perfectly.
You could also use meat toppings, such as sausage and pepperoni, but they seem a little redundant, since the whole bottom layer is meat.
Drizzle the whole thing with a little olive oil (if using; it's really not necessary).
Put your Meatza! 4 inches (10 cm) below a broiler set on high.
Broil for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.
Each with about 5 grams of carbohydrates per serving, only a trace of fiber, and 27 grams of protein. (This is based on using sugar-free pizza sauce and only cheese, no other toppings.) If you haven't been able to find a pizza sauce that doesn't have sugar, you might combine an 8-ounce (225 g) can of tomato sauce with a crushed clove of garlic and some oregano.
