{Recipe} Pepperoni Meatza

Recently, David and I were craving pizza. Go figure!!! We pondered ways to substitute the crust for something more fat loss friendly than bread. I’ve never found a cauliflower crust recipe that worked great for me (please comment and share if you have one!), so we decided to try MEAT! 😉 Meatza was born!

Here is how our experiment turned out that Saturday afternoon…

Ingredients for Pepperoni Meatza “crust”:

  • 1 lb Lean ground turkey (We used extra lean – 99% fat-free)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • a dash of salt
  • a dash of black pepper

Mix all of this in a bowl. Mash it into a circle on a pizza stone until it’s thin – similar to pizza dough. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven to top it with your favorite ingredients. Note: Up the oven temperature to 400 degrees while you add toppings.

Our Toppings:

  • 2/3 cup of pizza sauce (to keep it really simple, I used a jarred spaghetti sauce called Ragu Light – Tomato and Basil – No Sugar Added)
  • diced onions and bell pepper
  • mushrooms
  • Boar’s Head Turkey Pepperoni
  • sliced jalapenos
  • approximately 1/2 – 3/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

Use any toppings YOU like… whatever floats your boat! Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Serve with a side salad. Enjoy! If you like it spicy, add some crushed red pepper on top…yummmmm.

Pepperoni “Meat”za

By the time this came out of the oven, David and I were famished from a full afternoon of working around the house. We thought for sure we could eat the WHOLE pizza. Think again! See the blue plate in the picture? That was my one and only serving. It was incredibly filling compared to traditional pie!

If you want to be able to pick it up to eat it, make sure to slice it into fairly small pieces as pictured. Otherwise, you will be eating it with a fork.

I know that if you try this recipe, you will NOT be disappointed. 🙂 Make sure to let me know if you make it, what toppings you chose and how you changed up the recipe to fit your needs!

Enjoy!
