If you’re looking for an alternative to pizza, which always challenges us with blood sugar and gluten-free, these Meat mini-pizzas can be super tasty and fun: try them!

In the recipe you will find the ingredients to prepare a tasty and succulent base starting with beef, which I asked my trusted butcher to grind from a lean cut, as my children like. Indeed, remember that it is important to see which meat is used for the mince because if you buy it ready-made at the supermarket, it usually contains a very high percentage of fat.

For the topping, you can decide to use your favourite ingredients, without having to follow my instructions: it will be a lot of fun!

So tonight mini-pizzas ready in just over 30 minutes! For alternative pizzas, see also this Potato pizza with olives.

carbohydrates per 100g negliglible 

Ingredients for 5 mini-pizzas

  • 550g lean minced meat
  • 40g tomato sauce
  • 8g honey
  • 5g salt

Ingredients for the topping

  • tomato sauce
  • mozzarella
  • artichokes in oil or sautéed in a pan
  • sautéed mushrooms
  • sun-dried tomatoes*
  • olives
  • oregano
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, season the minced meat with the tomato sauce, honey and salt. Mix well and leave to rest for about 30 minutes.
  2. Then, take an 8-9cm diameter pastry cutter and form discs of meat by pressing it down well with the back of a spoon. Place the meat discs on a hot grill and cook them on both sides without cooking them through (I cooked them 3-4 minutes per side). Move away from the heat.
  3. Meanwhile, season the tomato sauce with oregano, oil and salt.
  4. Place the grilled meat on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and top it like a pizza: tomato sauce, a few slices of mozzarella, artichokes, mushrooms, chopped sun-dried tomatoes and olives.
  5. Bake the mini-pizzas under the grill preheated to 220°C for about 4 minutes or anyway until the mozzarella has melted. Serve them hot.
