Meatza - Homemade Pizza w/ Everything but the Crust!

 
My youngest son and I had fun creating some breadless meals and this is one of them. He named them Meatzas (or Meazzas) because the toppings are layered over ground meat, not crust. Our whole family loves them! We don't miss the crust at all.
 
Prepare all of the toppings you would like on a pizza. Pour pizza sauce over a bed of fully-cooked ground turkey or beef. Layer mozzarella cheese and your favorite toppings over the sauce and meat. Bake at 375-400 degrees until the cheese melts.
 
Meatzas shown above are layered as follows:
 
Pizza #1 - Ground turkey, pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, sautéed multi-color bell peppers, turkey pepperoni, pineapple tidbits
Pizza #2 - Ground turkey, pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, turkey Italian sausage crumbles, turkey pepperoni, Canadian bacon
Pizza #3 (left half) - Ground turkey, pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, pineapple tidbits
Pizza #3 (right half) - Ground turkey, pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, turkey pepperoni
