Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes or to taste (optional)
  • 2 lb ground beef extra lean
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 12 oz mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 3.5 oz pepperoni sliced, or to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  2. Mix together salt, caraway seeds, oregano, garlic salt, ground black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes in a small bowl.

  3. Mix ground beef and eggs in a mixing bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Add Parmesan cheese and seasoning mixture to beef; combine. Press ground beef mixture into a 12x17-inch pan, spread out evenly.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain grease.

  5. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and turn on the oven's broiler.

  6. Sprinkle 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese over baked meat, followed by tomato sauce in an even layer. Sprinkle another 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese over the sauce and top with slices of pepperoni. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over pizza.

  7. Broil until cheese is melted, bubbling, and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
