Meat Lover’s Pizza
Meat Lover’s Pizza is typically one of those ultimate indulgences you crave when you want to “be really bad.” Ordering a pizza loaded with all those meats feels decadent, over-the-top and a little dangerous. It’s a shame those feelings are often followed by a tight waistband and a generous helping of guilt. This pizza is the perfect way to give in to your craving and feel good about it afterward! It even takes less time to put together than it does to call and wait for delivery. If you’re looking for saucy, cheesy pizza piled with spicy sausage, zippy pepperoni and smoky bacon, look no further. You can have you Meat Lover’s Pizza and eat it too.

My Meat Lover’s Pizza recipe was featured in Oprah’s lineup of “Decadent Comfort Food for Calorie Counters” on Oprah.com!
Meat Lover's Pizza
- 1 (4 oz) hot Italian turkey sausage, casing removed (I used Jennie-O)
- Boboli 12” Whole Wheat Thin Pizza Crust
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- ¾ cup reduced fat 2% shredded mozzarella cheese
- 10 slices turkey pepperoni, sliced into quarters
- 2 tablespoons Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon Bits
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- Preheat the oven to 450.
- Place sausage in a small skillet and bring it over medium heat. Break up the meat with a wooden spoon and cook until sausage is browned.
- Spread pizza sauce evenly across the top surface of the pizza crust, leaving at least a ½ inch edge around the outside. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella evenly over the top, followed by the pepperoni pieces. Spread the cooked sausage crumbles evenly across the pizza and follow with the bacon bits. Finish the pizza by sprinkling the Italian seasoning over top.
- Place pizza on a foil covered baking sheet, a preheated pizza stone (my preference) or straight onto the oven rack (depending on how you like your crust) and bake for 8-10 minutes.
5 per slice (P+ calculated using the recipe builder on weightwatchers.com)
looks fantastic. I wish we had Jennie-O turkey sausage and ANY pre sliced turkey pepperoni. The best stuff I can find is grimms turkey pepperoni sticks but it’s not as good on pizza when sliced… I like thin big slices…
Hm. I don’t know what grocery stores you have nearby, but if you have a super walmart they have both!

Let me say, Pizza Hut’s meat lovers pizza is one of my favorites, but after making this tonight, I have a legitimate replacement for take out pizza. My Kroger didn’t have turkey pepperoni, so I subbed Canadian bacon, which should have kept the calorie count pretty close. This was delicious, and I have two more meals out of it. Yum, yum yum. After making the chocolate donuts last night, and this tonight, you definitely have a new fan. Thanks Emily!
Thanks! I’m so glad the pizza and the doughnuts turned out great. Canadian bacon on this sounds awesome, I’ll have to try it that way sometime! Yum. 🙂
I’m actually planning on making pizza this weekend, from the just-add-water dough mix. I was going to do turkey pepperoni and turkey meatballs. But I like the idea of adding the bacon bits, too! I would’ve never thought to do that.
Hope you love it! Bacon makes everything better 🙂
I made this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic!! I posted a picture of the finished product on Facebook and got so many requests for this recipe. I will post a link back to your page. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
Thanks, Brandy! I’m so happy you loved them and I hope your friends do too! 🙂
I am sooo excited to make this (and all the other recipes you have!!) Thanks for helping me get creative in the kitchen 🙂
Thanks Sara! I hope you love the recipe. Let me know what you think 🙂
Just made this tonight for my boyfriend and I and we LOVED IT! 🙂 The only change I made was added green peppers simply because I had one that needed to be used.
Love your recipes!!
Made this pizza this weekend for my Hubby & I. It was FABULOUS!!! Thank you for the wonderful 5 point lunch! 🙂
Where is the pizza crust located at the stores? Is it refrigerated or frozen etc? Thanks! Cant wait to make this!
Lindsey – pizza crust is in the aisle with the tomato and pizza sauces, usually. Boboli doesn’t need refrigeration, so it’s usually around there. 🙂 Can’t wait to try this recipe myself! Thanks Emily, you ROCK sistah!
How many slices should you make? 4-6-8?
Do you happen to remember how many points the sausage was for 4 oz? I’m using the bob Evans pre cooked turkey sausage & am curious how they compare points wise
We made this for dinner tonight and it was great! I was a little worried about the cheese (it didn’t look like much on the pizza), but my fears were erased after the first bite. It just didn’t need that much with all of the other flavors that were going on! I had 2 big slices with some steamed green beans and it was perfect! I didn’t feel bloated like I normally do after pizza. This is going into the regular rotation.
PS: Kelly Douglas, the sausage I used was 5p+ for 4oz of hot Italian turkey sausage.
