CD’s Dream Dinner

by HEAB on April 12, 2011

Yesterday was CD’s birthday. Per his request, I made him a Meatza. A what? A Meatza, a pizza with a meat crust. The recipe comes from one of Chris’s favorite blogs, Free The Animal.



  • 2 lb. grass fed finished ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
  • 1/4 cup shredded Italian cheese for the crust + additional cheese for topping pizza
  • 1 cup pizza sauce (I used canned tomato sauce + salt + oregano)
  • Favorite pizza toppings


  • Preheat oven to 450℉.
  • For the crust, combine first 6 Ingredients.
  • Spread mixture onto baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. It will shrink.
  • Drain off beef fat.
  • Top the crust with pizza sauce, pizza toppings (we used mushrooms and onions sauteed in butter), and cheese. Broil until cheese is warm and bubbly.


Crust pre-topping:



I ate my meatza atop cooked veggies. ‘Twas good. Nice choice CD.


CD is the hardest person to shop for as he wants or needs nothing. So, for his birthday, I turned my former massage therapy space into his own private man-cave, and I put the pink back in my hair. Boy loves my pink streak. :)


Me serving CD a bowl of Butterfied Oaties (new nut-free oatie recipe!), his favorite birthday cake. Notice the pink?

We had a great time celebrating his birthday last night…only thing missing was Summer. She went to bed before all the festivities began. :(

Love you CD!
