Meatza Sunday!

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!

Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef (lean)

1 lb italian sausage

1 green pepper

1 onion

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)

Instructions:

Mix 1 lb of ground beef (93/7 lean) and italian sausage

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).

Smash and mash together the ground meats

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”

Place meat mixture onto the pan

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.

Cook at 375 for 10-12 minutes, meat will compress

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.

Sprinkle seasoning and cheese on top

Next, add any of your preferred toppings (I used onion, green pepper, pepperoni, mushrooms, and tomatoes).

Add additional toppings

Add another layer of cheese, and then place back into the oven for another 10 minutes.

Add another layer of cheese

When it’s finished, slice it up and dish it out!

Final product: Meatza!
