This is what happens when you have a pound of hamburger and prepared pizza dough waiting patiently to be tranformed while hungry bellies are grumbling to be fed!

These are so easy to make, and this recipe leaves room for a lot of variation! At the last minute I added some black beans! Ever had beans on your pizza? No, I haven’t either, but this is my kitchen and the perks of cooking in your own kitchen is that you can add what you want (or have on hand!).

  • 1 16 ounce prepared pizza crust
  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 can diced petite tomatoes
  • 1 can beans optional
  • Mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Remove pizza dough from package and cut into 3 x 3 squares.
  • Press each piece the dough into the muffin pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • In a large skillet, saute the over medium heat until tender, about 2-5 minutes. Next, add the ground beef and cook until crumbly and almost completely cooked. Drain excess fat, and put back on the burner. Add salt pepper, garlic powder, oregano and combine until meat is completely cooked. Add tomatoes and beans (if adding), and stir until combined. Remove from the heat. With a slotted spoon add meat to pizza cups (you may need to press dough down if it's too puffy). Add cheese and return to oven until melted (about 5 minutes).
  • Enjoy!


You will have a lot of filling left over, so consider purchasing more pizza crust.

I would love to hear what you would add to your Meatza appetizer! I’m already thinking that next time I’ll substitute about half of the hamburger for sausage and add some chopped spinach!

If you would like to make a whole pie, try this this Gluten Free Deep Dish White Pizza from Anyonita Nibbles!
