meatza and almond flour biscuit

I first saw a meatza recipe on MDA. I didn't think much of it when he originally posted the recipe, but then last night I remembered it and thought it was genius. A pizza with the crust made out of meat? Amazing. So I followed the very basic recipe.

-1 lb grass-fed ground beef
-1 egg
-cheese (or not)

I put the spices, egg and beef in my food processor and then spread it out on a baking pan lined with wax paper.

Bake at 450 for ten minutes.

It obviously will shrink. Drain off the fat.

Add sauce and cheese of choice. I used grass-fed cheddar, Kerrygold.

And topped with broccoli, orange peppers, onions and tomatoes. Then put under the broiler until you think it's done. Or, in my case, until you get too impatient and take it out.

I also attempted Food Renegade's almond flour biscuits. They didn't really turn out like biscuits as much as bread shaped like cookies. It called for 4 eggs, I should've taken into account that the eggs I get from my farmer are gigantic and probably double the size of a regular egg.

Still tasted good. Topped with tomater.

Then an egg.

The some hollandaise sauce that I made using the leftover yolks.

Completely filling. I didn't need a snack after this, as I find a lot of people end up snacking after dinner. Nor did I crave anything, including carbs/sugar.

Meatza is so legit.

This morning's breakfast.

And some kittens cuddled up on Scott's leg. Tonight I'm going over to his house to cook dinner and watch the Caps game. Cooking dinner for us both at his house is always a challenge, as he always has limited ingredients. And that whole bit about him not eating any animal products. I always make it work though.
