So today I successfully made “Meatza” for the first time, and I’d like to say, I am epic! I took photos of my meatza journey today, here we go!
1 lb ground beef (lean)
1 lb italian sausage
1 green pepper
1 can mushrooms
1 “bag” pizza cheese
Pizza Sauce (I used prego)
1 package Turkey Pepperoni (70% less fat than standard pepperoni)
Seasoning to taste (Garlic Salt & Mrs. Dash Table Blend)
So I started with 1 pound of ground beef, and one of italian sausage. I put them together in a medium large mixing bowl, and proceeded to mash them together manually (that’s with my hands).
Once mixed, place the meat onto a cookie sheet, roughly 1/2″ thick (make sure no small holes exist, as this will make it an awkward situation in a bit!) Note: This is enough to actually make one full and one small second batch of “meatza”
Cook the meat at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. The meat will shrink down as it cooks. Once cooked, drain the grease from the pan (tipping it at about a 45 degree angle worked out OK for me) and place on a heat resistant surface for step 2.
Sprinkle the meat with garlic, salt, and seasonings of choice (I used garlic/salt grinder and mrs. dash table blend). Spread Pizza sauce over the top in a thin layer, followed by cheese.
Next, add any of your preferred toppings (I used onion, green pepper, pepperoni, mushrooms, and tomatoes).
Add another layer of cheese, and then place back into the oven for another 10 minutes.
When it’s finished, slice it up and dish it out!
