Meatza? What exactly is a “meatza?” Well, think of pizza but then let’s think of pizza made of meat – and in this case, 5280 meat. I am not talking just some pepperoni on top of a pizza or ordering double meat. I am talking full on meat. A whole pizza made of meat. Now that is some protein!!!
This recipe was shared by my good friend Mara Rouse (www.mararouse.com), which she developed using grass-fed ground beef from 5280 Meat. If there is a group that knows meat it’s 5280! I’ve already had a fantastic time whipping up recipes with their beef and pork, like my Royal Rib Eye Steak and my Baked Eggs in a Porky Cup. Yum! Protein-loaded foods are always great. Finding ways to make them fun to keep your palate on its toes is another thing. This is a great way to take your craving of pizza and turn it into something more nutrient dense while not breaking your diet. We work too hard at sticking to what is healthy to let it go out the window for our cravings. Mara always adds such delicious flavors to make her recipes unique and different.
