This low carb mini Mexican meatza recipe makes for a delicious lunch or dinner. Think taco meets burger meets pizza. Low carb and super tasty!
When I laid this on the table in front of my husband I know he was thinking “what the heck is this?”. However after tasting it he was on board and asked me to make it again. It’s not the most attractive looking dish, but this low carb mini Mexican meatza recipe is delicious. It’s bigger and flatter than a burger, has no bread like a pizza and no shell like a taco. But somehow it’s a like a burger, taco and pizza rolled into one. It’s delicious and only 5.5g net carbs!
This week on Sunday Supper we are featuring easy ground beef dinners. I do eat quite a bit of ground beef in our home as I always have some in our freezer. Many times I make meatballs (Mongolian meatballs) or use it to stuff a vegetable with (stuffed eggplant). Actually I once made a large meatball and stuffed a pepper with it now that I think about it. My friends at have MANY more ground beef recipes below.
Mexican Meatza Spices
I made these a few weeks ago and just got around to posting this but just looking at them, I think I’m going to pull out some ground beef and taco mix to make one for lunch. I love taco meat and all the fixings you put on it so this is definitely my kind of low carb recipe. So if you like these, and are in a hurry, you can always use a taco mix instead of the spices.
Mexican Meatza Recipe
NOTE: you want to use lean ground beef. That way it won’t shrink up so much after you cook it and you will have less grease to deal with. You mix the meat with some cauliflower rice, an egg, onion and all those lovely Mexican spices. Divide the meat into 4 and make them into thin round pizza like patties. I could only fit 2 on a standard cookie sheet. Bake until the meat is cooked through.
When the meat is cooked, take out of the oven and add the cheese, onions and peppers and put them under the broiler for a few minutes. when the cheese has melted, take them out of the oven and add any additional toppings you wish, like avocado, sour cream, olives, etc.
It’s a simple meal but it’s really tasty. They taste much better than they look. Just ask my husband. 😉 The nutrition for each meatza without the crema is:
418 cals / 23.7g fat / 7.4g carbs/1.9g fiber / 39.8g protein = 5.5g net carbs
