What's a meatza? A meat pizza of course! Grain-free, packed with protein and amazingly delicious.
Why would you use meat as a pizza base? 🥩
We all deserve to treat ourselves to our favourite food every now and then, but getting your pizza fix doesn't have to come at a cost to your health.
What if we told you that pizza can be grain-free, gluten-free, low carb, Keto friendly and minimally processed?
All you need to do is swap out the usual bread base for some nutritious, Organic mince. This recipe uses turkey, but you could always use beef or pork as an alternative.
Once seasoned, you can top your meat base with your usual favourite pizza toppings - which brings us nicely on to our next point!
Low Carb & Keto friendly pizza toppings 🍕
In this recipe, we top our meatza with the classic combination of tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, Italian herbs and basil. It's simple but super delicious - especially when accompanying a meat base.
However, if you're feeling adventurous or want to bring more flavours to the table you can always experiment. Here are some of our favourite meatza toppings.
🔥 BBQ Chicken - Switch out the ketchup for Unsweetened Barbecue Sauce, top with sliced red onion and shredded chicken
🌶 Spicy Mexican - Season your meat base with chilli powder and paprika, top with a generous dollop of Unsweetened Spicy Chipotle ketchup and finish with diced bell pepper, tomato and fresh chillies
Whichever you choose, top with mozzarella and basil for an authentic finish!
