Paleo Recipe – Meatza Pizza

A cheeseless, wheatless pizza from CrossFit LA’s Sweet Cheeks Food Blog

Cheese-less Meatza

  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1 pound Italian sausage, uncooked and squeezed out of it’s casing
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano

Paleo tomato sauce

  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup water or to desired thickness
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Meatza toppings!!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the hamburger meat and sausage, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder together. Spread the meat out on a cookie sheet or mold into whatever shape desired. Make sure the meat is spread fairly thin, but without holes and round the edges up to make a crust. Cook in oven for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, you have two tasks. One – chop up and sauté your Meatza toppings in a bit of olive oil. Two – Mix together the tomato paste, water, oregano and garlic powder to create a Meatza sauce.

Once the Meatza is done cooking, pour off the grease and immediately cover the meat with the tomato sauce to warm up the sauce. (or you can warm the sauce in a pan first, the other way is just easier!) Add your toppings and have a Meatza party!
