Ingredients

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese (grated, divided)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • ½ cup nitrate-free pepperoni (or ham, cooked chicken or sausage, optional)
  • ½ cup onion (thinly sliced)
  • ½ cup bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • ½ cup mushrooms (sliced)
  • ¼ cup black olives (sliced)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese (shredded)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Grease a rimmed baking sheet with coconut oil and set aside.
  • In medium bowl, mix together the ground beef with eggs, 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese, and all the spices.
  • Mix well by hand until incorporated.
  • Spread onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Roll or press the meat onto the bottom of the cookie sheet by hand. 
  • Put meat into the preheated oven and cook about 10 minutes until browned and most moisture has cooked off. It will reduce in size quite a bit! Just make sure it is cooked enough, you want it pretty solid.
  • Remove the meat from the oven and switch the oven to broil.
  • Spread the pizza sauce over the meat “crust” then top with the pepperoni or other meat if using, sliced veggies, mozzarella and remaining Parmesan cheese.
  • Put back into the oven under the broiler and watch closely. It will only need to cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove, let cool 3 minutes, slice, and serve.

Notes

  • You can use a mix of Italian sausage and ground beef for the base if you'd like.
  • Use whatever pizza veggies for topping  you prefer.  I recommend putting some very thinly sliced onions on the top of the mozzarella which brown nicely and add a nice crunch.
