Meatza: South Beach Friendly

Last week husband was gone for 6 days on a business trip.  He came back feeling awful and needed a little detox from all the eating out and high carb meals.  So, now he’s trying to really limit his carbs.  Tonight I made him some meatza.  It’s like pizza, but without the crust and instead uses ground beef.  It actually is really good and a great low carb meal.

 

Yummy Meatza!

Yummy Meatza!

Here is what you need:

1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef (I actually used 2 lbs because my meat comes in 1 lb packages)
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed (fresh or from a jar)
1 tsp. dried oregano or Italian seasoning
8 oz. sugar free pizza sauce (Hunts Garlic and Herb in can)
8 oz. shredded mozzarella
Toppings (peppers, mushrooms, olives, whatever you like)

Here’s what the garlic and herb sauce looks like (It’s the one we’ve found with the lowest amount of sugar)

Sauce with the lowest sugar.

All you do is:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl combine the meat with the onion, garlic and
oregano or Italian seasonings.
3. Pat the mixture out in an even layer in a 9×12 baking pan. Bake
for 20 minutes.
4. When the meat comes out, it will have shrunk a fair amount. Pour
off the grease and spread the pizza sauce over the meat. Sprinkle on
the cheese.
5. Add toppings.
6. Put the Meatza 4 inches below a broiler set on high. Broil for
about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
(Can also place in regular oven and bake until cheese is melted)

Plenty of leftovers too!

We let the girls make their own pizzas but using whole wheat toasted sandwich rounds.  I will miss one day how excited these girls get to make pizza!

My sweet girls!

Last week I posted how I lost my pregnancy weight.  I definitely made this a lot then!
