Pizza has always been one of my favorite foods. Meatza is the perfect way for carnivores to still enjoy this delicious dish! In this recipe I use ground chicken for the crust, but you can use any ground meat that you prefer. I've also used Italian sausage for the crust which tasted delicious, however it has a higher fat content than chicken so it can be a little messy when cooking it in the oven. I recommend placing your spring form pan on a baking sheet to catch any of the fat and meat drippings. You can also fill your meatza with any meat that you would like and add your favorite keto or meaty toppings as well. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator. This meatza reheats well in the air fryer or oven, so it's great for meal prep.
carnivore deep dish meatza
1 lb ground chicken raw
1 large egg
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese divided
salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings to taste
1 lb ground beef
15 oz ricotta cheese
12-16 oz bacon chopped and cooked
Other keto toppings
9 inch Spring form pan
Preheat the oven to 425°F and grease the bottom and sides of a 9" spring form pan with butter. Place the spring form pan on a baking sheet.
Add the ground chicken, egg, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella, and seasonings to a medium to large size mixing bowl. Use your hands to incorporate the ingredients.
Add the chicken mixture to the spring form pan and press it evenly on the bottom and sides of the pan. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and remove.
Top the chicken crust with layers of ricotta cheese, ground beef, and the remaining mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings on top. Finish by topping with bacon or your favorite keto toppings.
Place the meatza back in the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until the meatza is warm in the center. Let the meatza cool for 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
