Smoked Low Carb Meatza Pie
Smoked Low Carb Meatza Pie - Have you ever heard of a Meatza Pie? It's a Low-Carb Pizza that uses meat for the crust instead of a traditional pizza dough. It's been 5 months since I cooked one of these and now I'm wondering why I waited so long!! Smoked a simple meatloaf recipe for the crust on my MAK 2 Star using Cookinpellets.com Premium Perfect Mix pellets. Topped the smoked/cooked meat crust with some of my favorite toppings and even added some pineapple chunks for the dear wife ... A true meat lover's delight!
Smoked the Meatza crust for 30 minutes at 180ºF before bumping the MAK 2 Star pit temp to 400ºF. Finished the crust by cooking it for another 15-20 minutes till the crust internal temperature reached 160ºF.
Topped the Meatza Pie crust with shredded mozzarella, pizza sauce, more shredded mozzarella, ham, dry salami, pepperoni, red onions, sliced black olives, sliced mushrooms, finished with shredded mozzarella and some pineapple chunks.
Placed the Meatza Pie back into the 400ºF MAK 2 Star for 12-15 minutes and cooked the pie until the the cheese was melted and bubbly. Let the Meatza Pie rest for 5 minutes before serving a slice with a side of green salad.
