meatza ready to eat

This meatza recipe is a perfect treat for me living a keto lifestyle. Fat packed, protein packed it is a low carb treat. Here I have topped the meatza (or should I say meatzza?) with cheese, bacon, mushrooms and red onion but of course you can top with whatever keto friendly meat or veg you wish?

That being said you can enjoy a meatza treat whether on keto or not and add whatever you wish on top. Pepperoni, chorizo, green peppers, go for it. It essentially becomes a big tasty cheeseburger with toppings. Yummy. You can also adapt to your own tastes by switching up the herbs used in the base.

served meatza with bacon and cheese on top

I have shown previously how to make a simple keto friendly crusted pizza, but here we go in another direction with a meat fest using mince beef as the base (ground beef in US). It is not only keto friendly, low carb but without the breaded base it is also gluten free, paleo, egg free etc.

Note: If on keto always check mince beef labels in supermarkets. They sometimes add carbs in ways to make it taste better, i.e being sneaky with the ‘low fat’ versions. Find the one with highest fat levels and you will probably find low carbs. Better for being satiated with less as well.

I do find that this is so filling that I can make it last over 2 meals at least.

  • Now to add the toppings.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheese all over the meatza base.
  • Add the bacon, mushrooms and red onion pieces over the top of the cheese. (if you wish then you can pre fry the bacon but thin cuts work like this ok)
  • Place the prepared meatza back into the oven for another 10 minutes to cook the topping. The cheese should be bubbling nicely.
