1/2 lb grass fed beef – lowest fat possible
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1 tbsp chili powder – or other seasoning of choice
1/3 cup DH Marinara Sauce or other low carb sauce
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup sliced green bell peppers
6 slices of pepperoni
12″ Non-stick Pizza pan
Non-stick cooking spray – optional
Set the oven to broil and arrange the top rack about 6 inches from the flame.
Add the salt, pepper and chili powder to the grass fed beef and mix together.
Slice the bell pepper into small slivers and set aside.
Press the beef onto the pizza pan and spread it as far out to the edges as possible because it will shrink a lot in the oven. You want the beef crust to be very thin.
Place the prepared crust under the broiler for about 7-9 minutes or until browned on the top and remove promptly. Check on it after about 4 or 5 minutes and drain the excess fluid using a handful of paper towels. Be careful of burning yourself during this process.
Spread the sauce evenly over the crust.
Take the pepper slices and arrange them over the sauce.
Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the peppers.
Lay the pepperoni slices over the cheese.
Place the prepared pizza back under the broiler for 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Make sure you let the pizza cool off before taking a bite. The inside contents may be hot!
