Gluten-Free Keto Meatza with Beef Heart

The beef heart and the savory gluten-free crust really shine in this keto meatza recipe. Easy keto recipes like this are a must, especially when you have a family to feed!

Mixing the beef heart in with ground beef enhances the nutritional value and flavor of the meat pie and makes it taste amazing. Organ meats provide many health benefits and are very affordable foods.

This is a low-carb, gluten-free, and grain-free recipe that is keto diet approved. With a few simple modifications, you can make this exclusively animal-based, great for those who like carnivore diet recipes.

The savory coconut flour crust is very easy to work with and can be prepared in under 5 minutes. This crust has been my “go-to” crust for savory dishes like quiches, pot pies and other meat pies.

Serve with a side salad and dressing or cauliflower rice. It feels good to be able to make something nutritious that the whole family can enjoy together. I love when everyone paused their activity, sits down and nourishes themselves together.

If you enjoy a fiber-free carnivore diet, just bake the filling and omit the crust.

Cheese it up!

If you or anyone in your family (like children!) are really into cheese, you can spread 1.5 to 2 cups of shredded cheese all over the top. As you can see in the video below, I topped half with cheese and left half with just meat.

Custom Keto Meatza with your favorite flavors

Both the crust and the filling are very customization. You can probably make this recipe with whatever you have on hand in the fridge.

For the filling: onions, garlic, fresh herbs, mushrooms, leafy greens, spinach, bell pepper, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto

For the crust: rosemary and garlic powder, oregano powder, thyme leaf, poppy seeds

Eating Beef Heart?

YES! Mixing ground organs like grass-fed beef heart and grass-fed beef liver with ground beef is my favorite way to provide extra nutrition for my family. We can regularly consume organ meats with ease and pleasure.

For Coconut Flour Crust

For Meat Filling


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C).
  • Prepare the crust. Whisk two eggs in a small bowl. Combine butter, oregano and salt in a second bowl. Pour the eggs into the butter; whisk to combine. Slowly add coconut flour and stir until a dough forms. Press the dough together to form a ball. Grease the pie plate; spread the dough from the center out to the edges. Make it even. Prick the bottom multiple times with a fork. Prebake the crust for 10 minutes, it should be just barely golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • While crust is baking, saute mushrooms in butter for 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic, continue cooking until soft.
  • Add the meat to the skillet and lightly brown. Toss meat with basil in the last minute or so of cooking.
  • Transfer cooked meat to a large mixing bowl and mix in eggs.
  • Pour mixture into the crust. Sprinkle optional cheese on top. Return to the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until the cheese melts.
  • Let the pie sit to cool and rest for 10 minutes. Slice into 6 portions and serve warm.

    I made this for tonight’s dinner (minus the beef heart b/c I didn’t have any). I added chopped spinach to the filling. It turned out delicious!!

      Great idea to add in the leafy greens – you can pack a lot of variety with different greens and fresh herbs.

    I made this for dinner last night and followed the recipe exactly. It was wonderful. The crust was so good. I ground that beef heart that was sitting in my freezer and portioned it out into 1/2 pound freezer bags and now I’m gonna add it to all my ground beef meals. Thank you for this recipe

    Jessica: In the printed version of the recipe, you forgot to list the two eggs that are added to the meat mixture (as shown in the video). I find that the addition of these eggs really helps with the solidity of the pie. Thanks for such a great recipe!

    Jessica: Have you tried this recipe using dried basil? That’s all I have on hand! Any recommendations about how much dried basil to use?

    I’ve experimented with dried basil. About 1/4 cup of dried basil replaces 1/2 cup of fresh. Delicious either way!
