A paleo friendly low carb meatza pizza is basically just a seasoned ground beef mix cooked flat to make a crust. Then, it’s topped off with veggies.
I was in the mood for some yummy low carb pizza. But, I wanted to try something a little bit different than the standard bread like pizza crust.
You may have heard of a meat crust pizza referred to as Meatza. I decided to use tomato slices instead of sauce and added some chopped spinach to make this spinach tomato meatza pizza.
I’m not sure where the idea of meatza came from, but it really is a novel idea. It’s a perfect way to make low carb pizza crust. Just grab your favorite ground meat, season it and roll it out into a dough.
The flavor combinations are endless for this meaty low carb crust. Simply change the toppings to customize it to your liking. I think a bunch of low carb vegetables would be delicious on top of the meatza pizza crust.
I think it would be a lot of protein to put meat toppings on a meat based low carb crust. I prefer using the crust for a cheese or vegetable pizza. That way, you are getting a more complete meal.
Of course, the choice is ultimately up to you. And, you can certainly put pepperoni or sausage on the meatza pizza crust. But on a keto diet, most find it’s optimal to eat moderate protein so you may not want to overdo it.
Some might call this a flat meatloaf covered with pizza toppings. So, regardless of what it’s called. I just think it’s a delicious low carb meal that really satisfies.
You serve meatza pizza by the slice so you don’t even need a fork to eat it. Just pick it up in your hands and enjoy each cheesy slice.
Next time, I will try using low carb pizza sauce and different toppings. However, I thought this paleo friendly meatza pizza was excellent with the tomatoes and spinach.
