Very Low Carb to Zero Carb Pizza
- Ready In:
1 large pizza casserole
- 3 lbs ground beef
- 3 eggs
- 2 ounces pork skins, crushed (see note A)
- 3 ounces tomato paste (see note B)
- 6 -8 cups mozzarella cheese (see note C)
- 6 -8 cups pepperoni slices (see note C)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Serve hot in dishes, as it will not hold together. Cold, it can be sliced and eaten like regular pizza.
- 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.
- A - This is 1/2 of 4oz bag of Rinds. Any pork skin/rinds will do. The dryer the better.
- B - This is 1/2 of 6oz can of Tomato Paste.
- 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!

I'm a Very Low Carb to Zero Carb eater. I came into this after a long, fruitless decade of trying everything that I could think of to stop the slow decline in health I'd been suffering for a long time. And though it goes against what current medical science would tell us, dropping 90% of my fruits and veggies (I still use them as spices), starches, sugars/sugar substitutes, and ALL grains from my diet seems to have turned the tide. I will have been doing this for a year on December 1st, 2009, and intend to keep on doing it. My original symptoms that developed over about 10 years: * extreme weakness * fatigue * severe depression/anxiety * hair loss * muscle stiffness and pain * foggy thinking * disorientation * bloating * stomach/gal bladder pain (test photos revealed no ulceration, but severe inflammation) * constipation and diarrhea - rarely anything else * skin soreness over stomach/gal bladder/intestinal track. * trouble sleeping - would wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to go back to sleep All gone. I am a new person.
