I fasted for 24 hours, from Sunday afternoon to Monday afternoon.  I figured I would “break my fast” in grand fashion.

I had read about meatza, a paleodiet-friendly pizza with meat instead of crust.  I used the general idea from here, with my own changes.

My “crust” was ground beef and eggs mixed together like meatloaf.  I fried some sausage as a topping.  I sauteed onions, green peppers, and red bell peppers for more toppings.  I mixed tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, basil, garlic, pepper, and oregano for sauce.  I made the meatza from these ingredients, and broiled it until it was done.

I had mixed some olive oil, dried red pepper, and parmesan cheese as a thick sauce to add after the meal was cooked.

It turned out delicious!  It is filling so I have leftovers.  I didn’t take any pictures of it, or measure anything, so I don’t have a true recipe, but I’m going to do it a little different next time.

  1. Phyllis,
    You may want to read up on what the paleodiet people say about cholesterol levels. In a nutshell, eating cholesterol doesn’t necessarily raise cholesterol blood. Eating grains is the real problem. That causes various metabolic problems.

  2. It sounds tasty (well, except for the onions and peppers–I don’t like what my digestive system does with those).

    Unless I cook it on the back porch, in the George Foreman cooking-thing, though, I don’t see it happening at my house. Jenn’s vegetarian, and wouldn’t be very happy about me cooking that much meat in the kitchen…

  3. Tom,
    It was tasty, and you can use whatever pizza toppings tickle your fancy.

    As far as a vegetarian wife… There is a version of it made with cauliflower crust. It just doesn’t sound as appetizing though.
