What I Eat

Hamburger Pizza

Makes: one 12 inch pizza

Ingredients:
1 pizza crust mix that is not made with an enriched flour (the brand I buy is gluten free) and the ingredients to make it
1/4 lb. lean ground beef (I buy 93% lean 7% fat)
dried basil leaves, to taste
dried Italian seasoning, to taste
jarred pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese, to taste
dried parsley flakes, to taste

Directions:
Make crust according to package directions. If your mix makes two 12 inch pizza crusts, freeze one to use another day. Crumble and brown ground beef. Drain grease. Mix in basil and Italian seasonings. Since jarred pizza sauce contains sugar, spread a thin layer on the crust. Top pizza with 3/4 cup mozzarella. Top cheese with cooked ground beef. Top meat with the remaining mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley. Bake according to crust package directions. Have with a glass of water.
