Paleo pizza: The meatza from ‘The Paleo Recipe Book’.
-Yields 8 good slices
This a special version of your usual pizza developed by fans of the Paleo diet where ground meat is used to make a crust instead of wheat flour. The meat crust is pre-baked before the topping ingredients are added. You can use whatever toppings you usually like on your pizza like bacon, olives, sausage, bell peppers, mushrooms, etc..
1 lb lean ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1⁄4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Sea salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
6 slices bacon, cut in 1-inch pieces
3/4 lb button mushrooms, sliced
1 cup bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 cup sugar-free tomato sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 450 F.
In a bowl, mix the ground meat with the onion, garlic, and egg.
Spread the mixture on a 16-inch pizza pan and bake for 10 minutes.
While the crust cooks, heat a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the bacon for about 5 minutes so it’s still a bit soft.
Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until they are almost cooked.
Add the bell peppers and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Remove the crust from the oven and pour out the juices which can be reserved for other recipes. At this point the crust will have shrunk a bit.
Preheat your oven broiler.
Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the crust and spread the bacon, mushrooms and bell peppers on top of the sauce. Sprinkle with the oregano.
Put the pizza back under the broiler and broil until top starts to brown.
