Greekza Pizza: A Grain and Dairy Free Pizza

I love eating salads this time of year and one of my favorites is a Gyro Salad with all that deliciously salty feta cheese, flavorful Gyro meat, and a nice warm pita to mop up all the dressing. In maintaining a Paleo way of eating, I am to stay away from grains and dairy. After seeing a picture of a Meatza Pizza on, I thought that I could create my own version using all the Greek flavors found in a Gyro Salad and forming it into a pizza using the meat as a crust. Although this is a fork and knife meal, I did not miss the cheese and bread (alright, maybe a little.) If you are following a regular diet, go ahead and throw on the Feta and maybe a drizzle of Tzatziki. Moderation in moderation, right?

Greekza Pizza
1 pound organic, free-range ground beef, 85/15 fat
1/2 tsp. sea salt, optional
1 T. minced fresh oregano
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 T. red onion, finely chopped
1/4 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper

Mix all ingredients together well and press into a 12 inch circle on a pizza pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes then broil for another 3. Remove from pan, leaving drippings behind and place on a plate. Top with…

sliced cucumbers
sliced tomatoes
sliced red onion
sliced fresh black olives
fresh oregano leaves
a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
more fresh cracked black pepper

Slice and serve. Serves 2-3.

I wonder what other versions we could dream up?

    What a great idea! Although the thought of grainless, dairyless pizza still makes me a little sad. This does look delicious though!

    Looks great! I'm definitely interested in the Paleo diet.

    I can't wait to try this because it has no carbs and just cholesterol in the meat which isn't too bad. Ma

    I just love pizza. I have a friend who also loves pizza but happens to be gluten intolerant. So i am always looking for alternative crusts.

    Best on the diet (camera adds ten pounds you tv star). I recently finished the 17 day diet. Worked great for me, but is sure a joy to be off it… Butter it hurt to be without

    Oooh,this recipe gives me a great framework for creating other sorts of "pizzas". Taco pizza would be yummy using taco meat as the crust and topping with lettuce, tomato, olives, salsa, guacamole. Score!

    My carnivore son would be all over this.

    How is sea salt not a "paleo" food? It is basically just sea water that's been evaporated (albeit from boiling the water away usually), but it doesn't seem like something that a cave man couldn't have done themselves with very primitive tools.

    Hi Jack,
    Most Paleo folks stay away from extra added salt. I do use a pinch here and there since my very modern tastebuds like the stuff;)
    It all depends on how strict you want to be about it.

    I too have made this Meatza. Very good and I too add celtic sea salt for flavor and minerals 😉

    Hmmm, wonder if I could do half ground lamb, half beef to get a really authentic gyro flavor? Maybe a schmear of tzatziki between the meat and veggies too…..
