Imagine sinking your teeth into a slice of pizza, but instead of a regular crust, you're tasting a delicious, perfectly seasoned slab of meat. Add a zesty marinara sauce, a blanket of melted mozzarella, and your favorite toppings... sounds tantalizing, right? So, why not roll up your sleeves and let's get started on this culinary adventure.

Ingredients for a Delicious Low Carb Meatzza

  • Ground beef: Essential for the meatzza crust, providing a hearty base and rich flavor that complements the other toppings well.
  • Parmesan cheese: Adds a savory umami flavor to the crust and helps bind the ingredients together for a delicious texture.
  • Garlic powder: Infuses the crust with a robust garlic flavor, enhancing the overall taste of the meatzza.
  • Onion powder: Provides a subtle onion flavor to the crust, adding depth and complexity to the overall dish.
  • Dried oregano: Brings a Mediterranean herbaceous note to the crust, elevating the taste profile with its aromatic essence.
  • Dried basil: Offers a fresh and herbaceous flavor to the crust, complementing the other seasonings and toppings beautifully.
  • Sugar-free marinara sauce: Acts as the pizza sauce alternative, adding a tangy and tomato-rich flavor to the meatzza.
  • Mozzarella cheese: Melts into gooey perfection, creating a cheesy blanket over the meatzza and binding all the toppings together.
