Chicken Taco Meatza



I think it's become obvious that my sister, Nicole is the chatty and artsy one in the family.  I like to cook, but this whole blogging thing and taking the pictures does not come as naturally to me.  I feel like there should be a "story" with each recipe, but honestly there isn't.   I tend to find recipes by googling ingredients that I think sound good together and then taking bits and pieces of each recipe I find and creating my own mealpod recipe.  


So... this is Chicken Taco Meatza.   What is Meatza?  It's one of my favorite Paleo recipes, basically you replace the normal crust with MEAT.  \o/  Yay!  My favorite Meatza of all time was my Margherita Meatza which was absolutely amazing.   The Greek Meatza was yummy but not as much of a home run as the first attempt.   The Chicken Taco Meatza, I think, is #2, even closer to #1 when garnished with sour cream and guacamole.
