Mediterranean Meatzza

I know I usually post recipes on Tuesday, but hey what difference does it make when you can have a recipe for meatzza! Any day is a good day for that.

Most people enjoy their pizza, tends to be a favorite food. But, for those of us who do not do grain for whatever reason, we were missing a favorite food. Thus was born meatzza. You can find many different variations of this yumminess on Primal/Paleo blog. This is mine.

1 lb lean ground beef*
1 lb lean ground pork*
1 large egg
1/2 diced onion
6-7 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan or Asiago, optional
2-3 TBS oregano
2-3 TBS basil
2-3 TBS dill
Several good shakes of Worcestershire sauce or Balsamic vinegar, a combination also works well
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
*I use lean meat for this recipe. Otherwise it shrinks to nothing.

Preheat oven to 450 F. Place all the above ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Press the mixture into a baking dish with deeper sides. Make sure there are no holes and the "crust" is even. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Take the cooked crust out of the oven and remove any excess liquid from the pan.

Top with your favorite toppings and put back into the oven. Mediterranean below.

Allow to cook about another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted, if using. Allow to cool about 5 minutes. Cut, serve and enjoy!

Mediterranean toppings:
Red onion thinly sliced
A combination of red, yellow and orange bell peppers, I usually dice
Kalamative olives sliced
Dried tomatoes, sliced
Mushrooms, sliced
Artichoke hearts
Feta cheese
Cheddar cheese
Tomato sauce/pizza sauce, I usually make my own

For the veggies, I do saute them before putting them on, you do not have too, but they will not be very cooked beings they will only in the oven about 10 minutes.

Other toppings I have done that were tasty:
Mixed veggie

Like with any other pizza, let your imagination run wild. Have fun with it and enjoy!

Saving the world one stick of butter at a time.
God's abundant blessings,
