This very low carb pizza should please even the Big Carbers amongst your friends and family. Eaten hot, it should be treated like a casserole, but cold it can held like a regular pizza slice. Bonus -- no wheat or gluten. Just meat, cheese and a bit of tomato paste.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cook ground beef with about 2 cups of water (water helps beef cook to crumbly) in a large pan on medium-high til completely done. Drain.
  2. Add 3 eggs, crushed pork skins, and 1/2 can of tomato paste and stir til blended. Spread in large casserole dish and press into bottom to make burger crust.
  3. Make 3 layers of cheese and pepperoni over hamburger. Cover with tin foil and cook at 400 for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook til browned to taste.
  4. Serve hot in dishes, as it will not hold together. Cold, it can be sliced and eaten like regular pizza.
  5. Optional:.
  6. Feel free to add any other spices, meats or (argh) veggies to taste. I like to add about a 1/4 cup of Frank's Red Hot to my hamburger crust mix before spreading it into the pan.
  7. NOTES:.
  8. A - This is 1/2 of 4oz bag of Rinds. Any pork skin/rinds will do. The dryer the better.
  9. B - This is 1/2 of 6oz can of Tomato Paste.
  10. C - I buy the large bag of shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni at Costco. Since my family loves tons of cheese and pepperoni, the cheese will do just over 2 pizzas, and the pepperoni will do just over four.

Awesome recipe!!!! I altered the recipe a bit for a smaller quantity and without pork rinds. 1-1.5 lbs ground beef, 2 eggs, 1 scoop of isopure zero carb unflavored protein and some hot sauce to make the crust. Once it cools, it is hard to tell there isn't a real pizza crust in there. I eat it cold - wow!
