Mexican Meat-za

This recipe was found at Modern Paleo.    It's like pizza but with a meat crust.  We modified it a little because we don't eat onions  You can add them to your crust if you wish to have smelly breath all night.  It was super easy to make, but our kids were not very keen on trying this because it doesn't look like anything they have ever eaten before.  They picked at a little but weren't sold on it.  It tastes a lot like a burrito without the tortilla - delicious.  We will definitely be making this again - you know what they say, kids have to try something 10 times before you can be sure they don't like it.  
Sorry - we were so excited to try it I forgot to take a picture until too late!


Loaded up with shredded lettuce, guacamole and fresh chopped jalapenos.  
For four servings you will need: 


"Crust"
2 lbs of ground beef 
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1 package taco seasoning


"Toppings" 
salsa
shredded cheese (we used Mexican blend) 
shredded iceberg lettuce
black olives
guacamole
sour cream 


1.  Preheat oven to 450.  
2.  Combine ground beef, eggs, parmesan cheese, garlic and taco seasoning.  
3.  Grease a 9x13 pan with butter and spread out the crust, making a ridge around the edge to hold the toppings (try not to have any gaps in the crust - cover pan completely)
4.  Bake the crust for 15 minutes (it may shrink from the edges a bit).  Remove and set the oven to broil. 
5.  Drain off the fat and cover with salsa, cheese, and olives if you prefer them.  
6.  Broil until bubbly and slightly browned. 


Serve with the toppings - kids love to top their own!  Ole!
