Meatzza

– The meatlover version of a pizza. And it can be varied so you’ll never get tired of meatzza.. This is my favorite version.

Ingredients for two meatzzas

“The bun”:

  • 600g minced beef
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley
  • spices – such as chili, cayenne, paprika, thyme
  • salt & pepper
  • sesame seeds – I prefer the toasted seeds

Mix the meat and the fresh and dry spices well and form into two large and flat hamburgers, the height should be max 3cm. Cover them in lots of sesame seeds and press the seeds gently into the meat. Heat some ghee on a frying pan and turn up the heat. grill the burgers for about 1 min on each side, at very high temperature, and put them aside. Be careful not to overcook them, as they are going to be cooked in the oven too, otherwise you’ll end up with very dry hamburgers.

Topping :

  • mushrooms – depending on the season
  • fresh pineapple
  • onion rings
  • sundried tomatoes
  • comté cheese 12+ months – optional
  • homemade salsa
  • fresh basil

Clean the mushrooms, cut them and leave them on the already very hot pan with a little salt. Cut the remaining ingredients into suitable pieces.

Place the two hamburger on an oven plate with baking paper and begin to build your burger by adding the cheese first. Then mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, salsa, pineapple and onion rings. Place the meatzzas in a pre-heated oven at about 180c for approx. 10min. until cheese has melted. Sprinkle with fresh basil when ready for serving.

While the meatzzas are in the oven, why not make a quick salsa of avocado, tomato and red onion, diced and tossed with salt, pepper, chili, oil and lemon juice.
