So, you know how last time I posted a primal pizza recipe and I said I had a bunch more? Well here’s a completely different one. This one is way more filling and substantial since, instead of light cauliflower, the crust is made of meat. Yep, you heard me, MEAT. Which is why it’s called a meatza! And which is why it is so nutritious. Oh, and it’s perfectly Whole 30.

And because it is so much more filling, you will probably only be able to eat 1/4 of it in one sitting (or half, if you’re a hungry, post-WOD Sham).

When I first heard about the idea of using meat instead of a traditional crust I was *very* skeptical. “That just sounds like a giant burger topped with veggies!” I mocked. I then made one and boy was I wrong. It tasted like a much more delicious version of real, actual pizza, but unlike real, actual pizza, instead of wanting to eat about 10,000 8 slices, I was perfectly satiated after just one.
