Happy Friday to all my "Healthy Honey's"! I hope you MADE it a great day! What a beautiful day it turned out to be here in Wisconsin! We welcomed the weekend with a fabulous Meatza Pie!
-1lb. organic plain ground pork
-1/2 red onion chopped fine
-3-4 garlic cloves chopped fine (we are garlic lover's so we did 6 cloves...do to your liking)
-1 free range egg beaten
-2 tblsp. ground almond meal
-2 tblsp. salt free pizza seasoning spice ( I buy it in bulk at my local health food store)
-crushed red pepper to your liking (optional...I prefer a lil' heat...ok alot of heat:)
-sea salt and ground pepper to your liking
-Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix all ingredients by hand in a mixing bowl. It should come together nicely. Similar texture to a meatloaf. Next spread into a thin crust on a pan. Size and thickness is up to you. I prefer more of a crispy edged crust so I make mine thinner. Place in oven and bake 15-20 minutes for thin crispy crust. If thicker just cook until it's cooked through...about 15min. Thick crust won't be very crispy so you are just looking to cook the meat.
Tonight for time reasons I did our favorite, clean ingredient canned pizza sauce. The sauce I prefer is: Muir Glenn Organic Pizza Sauce. Just tomato, EVOO, & spices...no sugar or anything dirty. I then spice it up a little on my own. I add garlic granules, salt free pizza spice, & fennel seed to taste. Taste it...you may like it as is. I prefer full flavored foods, which is why I add. Spread the sauce over your meat crust.
-red bell pepper
These are just a few suggestions. Mix and match to your liking, get creative! Take your chopped toppings and flash saute' them in a cast iron skillet with a small amount of olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar (use a good quality of REAL balsamic...it does make a difference in taste). Just looking to add a little flavor to them so only cook for a couple minutes. Next spread veggies over sauce. Place in oven and broil on top wrack an additional 3-5 minutes. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh basil and grated RAW goat cheese. (RAW goat cheese can be harder to find so omit if you choose. I like the depth it adds and rounds out the meatza perfectly!
Enjoy! Eat Well & Be Happy!
