Cheese Pizza Day

I found this old recipe for a cheese pizza with a ground beef crust called the San Francisco Hamburger Pizza.  This is great for anyone on the ketogenic diet.  I mean meat for the crust and cheese on top what more could you ask.

1 lb. Ground beef
1/3 c. chiccarones, crushed
3/4 c. tomato sauce, divided
1 egg
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/3 c. finely minced onion
¼ tsp. dried basil
¼ tsp. Dried oregano
butter
1 c. grated Mozzarella cheese
4 anchovy fillets, optional
12 black olives, sliced
¼ c. grated Parmesan cheese
½ red bell pepper, in strips

Combine the meat, chiccarones, ¼ cup tomato sauce, egg, garlic, onion and seasonings. Blend lightly but thoroughly.

 

Butter an iron skillet. Place meat mixture in it. Mold to form pizza base. Shape a rim all around to keep the sauce from spilling out. Spread the remaining tomato sauce, anchovies, olives and Mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and more basil and oregano. Garnish with red pepper strips.

Place pan in 400 degree oven. Bake approximately 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through.Let rest a few minutes before cutting into wedges.
