Pepperoni Meatza

"For people that are gluten-intolerant, low-carb, paleo, or whatever, it can be hard to go without pizza. This dish makes it a lot easier. It is made pretty much exactly the same as pizza, but with ground beef as the crust. Sounds weird at first, but it is absolutely delicious and very filling. This is something great to make ahead of time and then eat as leftovers later on. It's great hot or cold, just like pizza! I find that if you make 6 square slices, each slice is usually more than enough to fill you up. Feel free to add whatever toppings you normally eat on pizza. It will taste just as good!"

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Mix together salt, caraway seeds, oregano, garlic salt, ground black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes in a small bowl.
  3. Mix ground beef and eggs in a mixing bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Add Parmesan cheese and seasoning mixture to beef; combine. Press ground beef mixture into a 12x17-inch pan, spread out evenly.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain grease.
  5. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and turn on the oven's broiler.
  6. Sprinkle 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese over baked meat, followed by tomato sauce in an even layer. Sprinkle another 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese over the sauce and top with slices of pepperoni. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over pizza.
  7. Broil until cheese is melted, bubbling, and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

To be honest, I didn't like this the day I made it. It tasted nothing like pizza and the flavors didn't seem to mesh. But the next day and the day after that, it was AWESOME. I wanted to eat ...

Really good.... Added fresh veggies instead of pepperoni, baked it 5 more minutes then finished under the broiler. I even topped with some fresh greens when serving!

I used ground beef and Italian sausage then followed the recipe as written

This was sooo good!! It tasted just like a cheeseburger pizza. Next time I will add green peppers. Very good! Try it!!

This was SUPER easy to make. The TABLESPOON of SALT is WAY to much. Next time I will use a teaspoon. Though we are not gluten free it tasted like pizza! I think a side of garlic bread would ...

Excellent as written... Other than the amount of salt. I cut that in half. Kids loved it so much they BEG for me to make this. After 4 times I have changed to sugar free pizza sauce vs just toma...

we read some of the reviews and made one change, instead of ground beef alone we used our recipe for meatballs to make the crust. the flavor was awesome. Would definitely make it again.

Really liked this recipe- will make it again! A few tips though. I'd use less salt than the recipe calls for (you can always salt to taste when served). I used 90/10 beef and turkey pepperoni wh...
