Have you ever heard of a meatza? It’s the low-carb, grain-free answer to pizza cravings once you’ve adopted a keto, paleo, Primal, or Whole 30® way of living.
Meatzas are just as versatile as pizza. You can use virtually any ground meat as the “crust” base, and top it with endless combinations of pizza toppings. From traditional sauce and uncured pepperoni, to veggie lovers’, to caramelized onions and herbs, anything goes. We tapped into some tropical inspiration for this Keto Hawaiian BBQ Meatza. It’s flavorful and spicy, with a touch of sweet. To cool the kick and take a flavor journey to the islands, add some chopped mango or pineapple right before serving.
The best part is, they’re easy to make! If you’ve ever tried to make a grain-free or cauliflower pizza crust from scratch, you’ll appreciate how simple these are.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all of the meatza ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.
Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper. Divide the meat mixture into two and make two round flattened patties about 1/2” thick. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the meatzas over and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until their internal temperature is at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit and they are browned on the outside. Allow the meatzas to cool for a few minutes.
Spread the Primal Kitchen Mango Jalapeno BBQ Sauce on the meatzas. Arrange half of the sliced onion and jalapeno on top, then sprinkle with cheese.
Top with the remaining onion and jalapeno. Turn on your broiler and place the meatzas under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
Top with any additional of your favorite toppings and slice the meatzas up!
