Recipes so Easy, Even a Caveman Could Make Them: Mexi-Meatza


Delicious but tricky since it looks like pizza and tastes like chicken.

Ingredients:

1 8oz raw chicken breast
1/2 tsp taco seasoning (chili pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, sea salt)
2 tbsp avocado oil
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp shredded cheese (I used a blend of cheddar and Monterey jack)
2 tbsp prepared salsa

Step 1: Meat dough

Cut your chicken into small pieces with a pair of meat scissors before blending with taco seasoning, avocado oil, and butter.  Grease a small oven safe pan (I used a mini iron skillet) with butter and press the meat dough into an even layer.




Step 2: Bake the meat crust

In an oven preheated to 375 degrees, cook your meat dough for about 20 minutes (or until the surface browns and the edges crisp up and pull away from the sides of the pan.



Step 3: Spread your toppings

Once the meat crust is ready, add the salsa and spread out to the edges.  Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the salsa.  If desired, vegetables such as broccoli, shredded carrot, onion, etc. could be added at this step.  Put the pizza back into the oven for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.




Step 5: Flavor fiesta!

Yield: One personal pan Mexi-meatza

  1. Just to be certain, is the chicken already cooked before it goes into the food processor?

  2. I would also like to know, because it doesn't specify; is the chicken already cooked, or do you blend it raw? This sounds so good. I'd love to make it.

  3. The chicken is definitely raw going into the processor. This might seem a little gross, but it's really important to use raw chicken because using an already cooked chicken breast in the dough would give you a cracker instead of a pizza!

  4. Can you use a different type of Oil? Avocado oil is really hard to find where I live.

    1. You can definitely swap the oil out for another Paleo friendly option. I would go with olive oil as a second choice although coconut oil would probably work fine as well. Enjoy!
