Made pizza last night; here are pictures of the results. The first pizza was sausage, mushroom, and onion cooked in a toaster oven for about 30 mins. I wish I had gas but it was pretty good nonetheless. I had to cook the sausage in a pan completely because of how the toaster oven works. I made the dough, I can go into detail about how I made it if people desire.

The second pizza was cheese cause I had some leftover dough so it was smaller. I think I prefer the smaller size and forming the crust myself rather then relying on the pan in the toaster oven.

Post what toppings you usually get on your pizza and how you like your sauce and crust.

The second one was delicious as well.….It looks wonky cause I cut it before taking the picture..I also was using some cut parmesan cheese that melted but didn't perfectly fused with the mozzarella.

It's shiny because there was a light directly above it.

You can all eat a dick, there was no oil used at all. Shit was so cash!

Use light cheese next time, it tastes the same and doesn't ooze out oil everywhere. Or use boccocini for extra deliciousness.

I'm interested in your dough recipe too :)

I used to work in a pizza shop, so I've eaten more than my fair share of pizza. But lately the crust gives me some killer heartburn, I've turned my attention to the meatza.

The two recipes I've tried so far are a mince base and a zucchini base. Give them a go, tell me what you think.

Zucchini base Meatza wrote:
Ingredients:
4 cups finely grated zucchini (about 6 medium zucchini)
3/4 cup (90g) grated parmesan cheese
60g grated mozzarella cheese
3 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to taste

Preparation method
1.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
2.
Once zucchini has been grated lightly salt the zucchini and transfer it to a colander. Let stand 30 minutes and press all remaining liquid out of zucchini.
3.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine zucchini, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggs, pepper and salt. Mix well.
4.
Spread the mixture on a greased baking tray. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven.
5.
Remove the pizza base from the oven and heat the grill. Brush the top of the base with oil and then grill for 3 to 5 minutes until the top is lightly browned.
6.
Allow the base to cool slightly and slide spatula underneath all edges and under the middle. Place a large baking tray over the top of the base and gently flip the base over so that the bottom of the base is now facing upwards. It may be necessary to cut the base in half to facilitate the flipping. It is also okay to omit the flipping stage, but the base won't be as crunchy.
7.
Brush the top of the base with oil and grill for another 3 to 5 minutes until the top is browned.
8.
Cover base with pizza toppings of your choice. Cook again until cheese is lightly brown and bubbly.



Mince base Meatza wrote:
Ingredients:
1 kilo ground beef
2 eggs
Seasonings of choice (basil, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper and other herbs)
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese

Preparation method
1.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
2.
In medium bowl, mix beef with eggs and 2 T Parmesan cheese and any desired spices. Mix well by hand until incorporated.
3.
Spread onto greased oven tray (must have a lip on the sides). Press the meat onto the bottom of the tray by hand.
4.
Once oven has preheated, put into oven and cook about ten minutes until browned and most moisture has cooked off. Make sure it is cooked enough, you want it pretty solid.
5.
Cover base with pizza toppings of your choice. Cook again until cheese is lightly brown and bubbly.

I decided we'd have meatza for dinner tonight. I made a beef mince base, with half hawaiian and half supreme on top.

Before cooking the base, make sure it is pressed down firmly

You can see how much it has shrunk

Tomato paste and cheese

Topped off, ready for heating

Toasty! The edges are just crispy enough

Left overs for work lunches tomorrow

Served with salad and a sweet moscato

Next time, I'm going to use a little less mince, as the base was a little thick. Thinner would make it crispier. The 4 cheeses mix I bought was superb (mozzarella, parmesan, romano and colby), and all of the vegetable ingredients were bought yesterday from the market. 5 stars, will eat again.
