Delicious Chicken Meatza
I had heard this word meatza a few times… I thought it sounded really strange, and not like something I would want to eat. One day I realized that it was not a bunch of meat just mixed together in a meat mountain crockpot-stew, but a pizza made with a meat crust! My mind was blown, and I decided to try and make this meat-pizza-like-thing for dinner. In my head a pizza crust has a light colour (silly), and so I went with minced chicken rather than beef. I also went for a low(ish) fat-percentage in order to get the crust as crispy as possible. I dare to say that the very side of the crust turned out rather crispy, but it is almost impossible to keep that consistency all the way through.
This thing was delicious!
I was so surprised by the outcome of this meal. It filled me up fast, and kept me full for long. It was easy to make, and I got my vegetables and my meat. No complains from me, nor from Nicolai.
- 450gr minced chicken (7-10% fat)
- 1 medium size egg

- Organic tomato paste (enough to cover the whole pizza)
- 100 gr chorizo pieces (can be left out: Meat overload)

- Cherry tomatoes halved
- Orange bell pepper sliced up
- Avocado slices (after coming out the oven)
- Fresh Basil (upon serving)

- Place a baking sheet and press flat until you reach a reasonable thickness
- Pre-bake in the oven for 10 minutes
- Take out the oven and add toppings to the meatza
- Place back in the oven for 20 minutes

We ate this on a sunny evening, and had a glass of wine with it. Altogether it just felt and tasted fabulous. I can only recommend this meatza. Also, we had a leftover piece, which was used for lunch the following day. There was no problem keeping this in the fridge over night!
