Recipe By : Momma Pat
Categories: Beef / Pork
1 egg -- beaten
1/3 cup crushed pork rinds -- (1/3 to 1/2)
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
Combine in a mixing bowl: Once
thoroughly mixed, form into a ball and place it in the center
of a cookie sheet.
If you use a pizza pan, don't spread the meat to the edge or
you'll have a REAL mess on your hands.
Form the meat mixture into a 'crust.' Bake on 300 for about 20
minutes, or until firm.
(Somone posted that they bake for 30-40 min, to get 'crispy crust'.
Drain the juice from the cookie sheet and pat the 'crust' dry
with a paper towel.
Top the crust with low carb goodies. I use Italian style tomato
sauce, mozzerella, romano, pepperoni,
mushrooms, onions, etc. Back into the oven until cheese bubbles.
VERSION 2 --- Mexican
Mix a packet of taco seasoning
with the meat & spread it into 'crust' shape & thickness.
Cook it, as above.
After the meat 'crust' is cooked, spread a little salsa on it,
then some mexican cheese, some olives and
diced tomatos and bake until cheese is melted.
Serve with some sour cream and / or guacamole or diced avocado.

NOTES : This gets a little greasy
as it cooks. This is the one place I would consider using leaner
