If you’re a hunter, you are likely a carnivore. Eating meat is a bonus of our favorite pastime, and the best way to celebrate being a meat eater is to incorporate it into your entire meal.

If you like pizza, you’re going to love building a pie with a meat crust. That’s right—a meat crust—topped with tomato sauce, more meat, some veggies and lots of cheese. Do we have your attention yet?

Venison makes a great meat crust, but breadcrumbs, milk and eggs are required to bind the crust together and keep it firm to lift off a pan when loaded with toppings. Here’s how you construct a Meatza Deluxe.

Meat Pie Crust Ingredients
• 1½ lbs. ground venison
• ½ cup breadcrumbs
• ¼ cup milk
• 2 eggs
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ teaspoon garlic powder
• ½ teaspoon black pepper

Directions
1. Mix all ingredients thoroughly and spread evenly on a 14-inch Camp Chef cast iron pizza pan (a regular pizza pan will work, too). Push the meat to the edges of the pan until spread evenly. Form a raised edge on the meat to help hold the toppings.
2. Bake the meat crust at 400°F for 15 minutes, remove from oven and pour off any liquid or grease, or dab with a paper towel.

Meatza Deluxe Ingredients
• ½ cup pizza sauce
• 12 slices pepperoni (enough to evenly cover the sauce)
• ¼ yellow onion, sliced thin
• 3 large mushrooms, sliced
• ¼ large red pepper, sliced thin
• Any other pizza toppings you like
• 1½ cups grated cheese—mozzarella or a blend with cheddar

Directions
1. Spread pizza sauce evenly on the meat crust.
2. Add meat, vegetables, and then cheese to evenly cover the pie.
3. Bake the meatza at 400°F for 10 minutes, then broil for 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.
4. Slice and serve.
