Meat Pizza

21 Mar

I was pleasantly surprised by this for “Meatza Pizza” recipe from Melissa on theclothesmakethegirl.com. Frankly, while I was making it I was a bit skeptical if this would be good, let alone hold up in the freezer for a week. But it came out great and was a lifesaver on a busy night. Here is my adapted version:

Prep: 20 minutes Cook: 25 minutes. Makes one individual Pizza.

Ingredients:
1/2 lb. ground beef
3 tbl. tomato paste
1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
assorted toppings: suggestions of bacon, garlic, olives, tomato, spinach. The possibilities are endless!

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Mix ground beef and seasoning until well-combined.

3. Press the meat into a 8- or 9-inch round pie pan or into a rectangular roasting pan. Try to make it an even thickness. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the meat is cooked through and the edges are starting to brown.

4. While the meat is baking, chop the toppings.

5. When the meat is ready, spread with the tomato paste and top with your veggies.

*At this point you can wrap the whole thing in tin foil and freeze. This was great for a Sunday prep, so during the week when I come home exhausted I just popped it in the oven!

6. Pop it back in preheated to 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes if fresh, 25-30 minutes if frozen, or until it looks delicious and is warm in the middle.

Cut and serve!
