A Marvelously Easy Peasy Meatza Recipe

by Meg on January 27, 2014

I am sure there are over a million meatza recipes circulating the web right now, so I never planned to share my own meatza recipe on A Dash of Meg, but when a reader asked me to share my recipe I couldn’t say no!

So, here’s my easy peasy meatza recipe! :D

Meg’s Easy Peasy Meatza 

Serves 2

Ingredients:
1 lb. ground meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey – whatever you like best!)
1 egg
1 garlic clove, minced (or 1 tsp. garlic powder)
1 tbsp dried Italian herbs (oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, etc.)
freshly ground pepper (about 10 grinds will do!)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Once spices and egg are mixed throughout the meat evenly, form two meatza crusts by rolling two separate balls and flattening each into a circular crust on a lined baking tray.
Bake the crusts in the oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the crusts from the oven after 15 minutes and top with your favourite pizza toppings! Then, return your topped meatza’s back into the oven to bake for another 5 – 10 minutes or until meat is fully cooked and toppings are warm and slightly cooked, too.

My go to meatza toppings are:

- Organic pizza sauce

- mushrooms (mushrooms are a must on any pizza or meatza in my opinion!)

- onions

- sweet peppers

- fresh tomato

- nutritional yeast

Some other fun toppings include:

- zucchini

- olives

- pickled banana peppers

- artichoke

- spinach

- sundried tomato

- avocado

On Friday night, Eddie’s parents and I had meatza for dinner. It started off our weekend marvelously! I hope you think this recipe is marvelous, too, because I am linking it up to Katie’s Marvelous Monday link up party!

MiMM

Have you made meatza before? Are you happy I shared my recipe? What are your favourite pizza/meatza toppings?

Love always,

Meg xo

p.s. don’t forget to email me your high five for High Five Friday this week! I know you have a success to share with me! :D

So weird but I’ve never even heard of meatza before! Probably because I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 8…It sounds delicious though! I might have to give it a whirl with tempeh. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

Meg January 27, 2014 at 9:06 PM

try it with tempeh or veggie ground round! :D

SOOO all weekend on IG when you posted about this I was thinking “what the heck is meatza!??” Then today I read this post and it finally hit meat+pizza!!! Gosh some days I think my brain is 10 years behind… I LOVE meatzas! I had my first last year and make them on occasion for my fiancé! Your recipe looks way easier & just as delicious!

Mitchell January 28, 2014 at 2:35 AM

I don’t know if there are a million meatsa recipes circulating, because this is the first one I’ve seen :P

But it is certainly something I’ll be trying :)
I once had a burger where they replaced the bun with eggs, and I thought ‘why can’t there be more meals like this’? This is a perfect example ;) hahah
