Alexandrina Meatzza

At our place in around August 2019, our Babcia Krystyna first experimented with serving our family a low carb Meatzza, and since then it has been a tradition, so we call it a cross between a meatloaf and a pizza. We think it’s a nice easy meal, and takes only around ten minutes to prep! Yes, the crust is made just from meat, and we layer with simple toppings and lashings of Alexandrina Cheese.

Serves 4-6 

Groundwork, 10 minutes to prepare, 15-20 minutes to bake in the oven


  • 500 gm mince * options are numerous (but we often use Gum Park Pork Mince)
  • 50-100g tomato paste *you can use more or less depending on your family preference
  • 50-100g Alexandrina Fresh Jersey Ricotta * optional
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder * optional
  • salt & pepper 

Additional Toppings

250 g Alexandrina Gourmet Shred

additional 50-100g tomato paste *you can use more or less depending on your family preference

12 slices of fresh tomato

50 g capsicum sliced if you have these on hand

50g olives slices if you have these on hand

12 slices of pepperoni or cured meat (we love to use San Jose Smallgoods)

12 fresh basil leaves if in season

50 – 100 g Alexandrina Finniss River Romano


preheat oven to 200C

  • once combined, grab a pizza tray or a round crockery dish, and press the mince mixture into the pan, and spread it out to the edges as evenly as possible.
  • please note that this meatzza may shrink in the oven, and so don’t be surprised if there is a little moisture around the pan too. You will need to drain the excess fluid and press the edges dry with paper towel. Be careful to use oven mits and don’t burn yourself.
  • on the uncooked mince, spread the tomato paste evenly, then arrange the pepperoni or curd meat, then arrange the tomato slices, and other meatzza toppings like sliced capsicum, and slice olives.

Calcium Hero of the Dish 1 Alexandrina Gourmet Shred

Alexandrina’s Gourmet Shred is blended by our cheesemaker, it consists of four shredded cheeses including Edam, Gouda, Cheddar and Romano. Gourmet Shred has a tangy and medium bodied profile, but also a mellow sweetness. Gourmet Shred is conveniently used for melting, mixing or grilling, but can be used as a topping. When heated it has an elastic and stretchy texture, it has strong savoury flavour, and gives a beautiful aroma to your meal.

Calcium Hero of the Dish 2 Alexandrina Finniss River Romano

Top Tip | I think making burger sized meatzza’s, and perhaps using a muffin or silicon muffin tray would be a treat for lunch or weekend meal.

More cheese? Have fun out of Fleurieu Feta? Then sprinkle some Alexandrina Fresh Cheddar Curd or Fresh Cheddar Curd Chilli flavour would be an excellent addition to the meatzza!!!
