Vegetable Meatza Pie with Pesto Sauce

  • Ready In 40 minutes
  • Serves 8

Today my friend and colleague, Dr. Amy Myers, is sharing her comforting Meatza Pie recipe with us. Now you can satisfy your pizza cravings without any guilt! The grass-fed meats that form the crust are rich in zinc which strengthens the immune system and nourishes the gut. Click here to view PDF version. 

INGREDIENTS
  • Crust:

  • 1 pound ground grass-fed bison

  • 1 pound ground grass-fed beef

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons oregano

  • 2 teaspoons basil

  • 1 teaspoon thyme

  • 1 teaspoon parsley

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • Toppings:

  • 6 minced garlic cloves

  • 1/2 diced red onion

  • 4 ounces mushrooms

  • 1/2 zucchini

  • Pesto to taste – check out Amy’s recipe for Dino Kale Pesto

  • Additional toppings (optional): shredded carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, asparagus, basil

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

Make the crust. Place the bison and ground beef into a large mixing bowl and add the remaining crust ingredients. Mix until thoroughly com- bined.

Step 3

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the mixture on the baking sheet to make one large crust or two evenly sized crusts.

Step 4

Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Step 5

Remove the crust from the oven and evenly spread the pesto over the crust(s). Then place your toppings of choice onto the crust(s).

Step 6

Put the pizza(s) back in the oven and cook until vegetables are crisp and the meat is fully cooked – about 15 to 20 more minutes.

Step 7

Cut into wedges and serve while hot!
