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!
Other Easy Keto Ground Beef Recipe
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. I have a very popular low carb cheesesteak skillet recipe as well as 27 keto low carb ground beef recipes so check those out for easy family dinners.
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

Take out of the oven, sprinkle cheese and add onions and peppers on top.

Have you ever tried them with Ground Chicken or Turkey? Trying to avoid red meat.
That should work just fine….either of them. I just made a turkey crust pizza recently and it worked well. Hope you like it!
I’m about to try these. But what is salt? It calls for a teaspoon.
That would be salt. Sorry about that. Hope you like them!
I really love the flavor combinations and I don’t think I’d miss the bread part at all. Although we do love our bread – we actually don’t eat that much of it. This is full of flavor, I can see why your Hubby would be totally satisfied with it. I know I’d be happy having that for a meal. Great idea!!
Thanks Marisa! It’s an easy weeknight kind of meal. 🙂
Well we happen to LOVE all those…so this sounds pretty interesting to me. Lots of flavours happening. This would be a fun dinner any night of the week. Bet the grandkids would love this one too.
Yes this is a family friendly recipe. Even my picky 13 yo likes it!
I love Mexican flavors so this one is really on my list of must try. These days I often skip the bread or carbs and go with just the salad and meat for dinner or lunch. Love the flavors. Can’t wait to give this a go.
Oh my word this looks so delicious! We love burgers and tacos and pizza. So this is definitely up our alley. Super creative too.
It’s tasty Jolina! Hope your family likes it!
I love the idea of this!! I’m definitely making this for Dad.
I hope he likes it.
We love anything Mexican and I love that it’s low carb.
You will really like this then, Patti.
This is such a fun idea, love cilantro crema as well.
I like the crema too Caroline! Thanks for stopping by.
YUM! I have to watch my carbs these days and this “meatza” sounds like a dish that the whole family would love!
It’s definitely a family favorite at our house.
Can you add the macros into your recipe? Net carbs at least
Recently started keto…was skeptical about this recipe…but oh YUM!
This was really good and I can see many options for toppings!
Thanks Sherry! They aren’t the prettiest looking things but my family loved them. So glad you liked them and good luck on your keto journey!
