When I had gestational diabetes this recipe was a great treat.
"This recipe was good. I cooked it in a cake pan as other reviews mentioned spills in the oven...and the "crust" did not get crunchy. It still had a great flavor and totally satisfied the pizza craving. A variation with the toppings mixed with some ricotta is good as well. Great for low carb diets such as south beach. Thank you for sharing this one!!!"
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef; drain.
3. Place meat in a mixing bowl and mix with 1 cup of mozzarella.
4. Spread the mixture into a circle on a round pizza pan or baking stone (I prefer the stone); and top with 1/2 cup pizza sauce.
5. Top with the rest of the mozzarella, optional toppings and seasonings.
6. Bake for about 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned.
Comments: Tastes like a pizza, cuts like a pizza, yet there is no dough... though do have a fork and knife on hand for eating purposes because it can get a little messy if eaten with hands only. I am a South Beach dieter with a love for Italian foods and this is what curbs my craving for pizza. I love mine with the turkey pepperoni slices, onion, green peppers and mushroom. Serve with a tossed salad or marinated veggies.
jdriemeyer 7m agoMy family really liked this recipe. I used an Air-bake baking sheet, and the crust did not get crispy. Still very tasty though. My husband took one bite and said 'This is stupendous!' I'll make it again. One note: This recipe just barely served my family of 5.
rsearer 1y agoLow carb diets suck but this is a great dish to substitute. Would recommend using some Italian sausage in the meat crust. Drain meat well of juices to make the crust more firm.

ninny727 2y agoWow! This was good even without pepperoni. I used my homegrown veggies, peppers onions, cherry tomatoes. I also used our home ground venison instead of beef. Only thing I 'bought' was the cheese. Next time I'll squeeze out the juices, and spread it on a larger pan. After it was loaded I sprinkled a little oregano and olive oil. Whoo Hoo!!

kaykaykay60 2y agoI am always looking for a Gluten Free Alternative for pizza. This pizza was tasty. Next time I make it I'm going to try using taco chips for the first layer to help soak up some of the meat juices.
keith_h_donnell 2y agoNo dough? How bout making it with No Sauce! That was my problem. Somehow, I was fixed on loading the meatzza up with a lot of sausage and hamburger. Stacked high with grated Parmesan, mushrooms, more cheese and sliced peppers on a Pizza Stone. Not until after our first bites did we realize the Ragu was missing. Oh well, IT WAS JUST AS GOOD!!! Maybe next time I'll try it with sauce. BTW, during the Pre-heating, stick the Pizza Stone in the oven to start warming. BE CAREFUL - HOT STONE! Remove and start loading it up. This will enable your meat to begin to firm up and act as a crust.
