I like pizza. I also know that I need to get my protein in, and avoid the negative digestive effects of having pizza that myself and so many others experience. The “Meatzza” offers a unique twist on pizza while meeting my carnvivorous needs.
Extra Lean Ground Beef (125g), Low Fat Mozarella (40g), Pizza Sauce (1/4 Cup), Low Fat Turkey Pepperoni (7 slices), Onion (1/4 medium), Bell Pepper (1/4 medium)

When cooking this pizza, you will have to make sure of a few things; that the ground beef crust is bound by the cheese. Secondly, you will need to make sure the meat does not stick to the pan when baking. I will use a spray of olive oil for this. As for toppings, you can get pretty liberal with the veggies. Another way to make the dish a little leaner is to sub extra lean turkey or chicken for the beef. This substitution may allow for more meat or cheese, depending on what your interests are for the dish.
Obviously this is not a true pizza, so you will have to eat with a knife and fork. I will tell you however, that the dish is very tasty and offers a fun alternative for the entire family.
Thank you Laura for passing along this great recipe.
