If you enjoy the Big Mac from McDonalds this pizza is perfect for you. This recipe combines several of the ingredients of a Big Mac into a delicious and easy to make pizza. The sauce is Thousand Island dressing, which does have a similar taste to the sauce used on the Big Mac. The pizza is then topped with ingredients such as cooked ground beef, Colby-jack cheese, pickles and lettuce. If you want to make it more like a Big Mac you could add some minced onto the pizza as well. Another great option is to add diced tomatoes on top of the pizza after it has finished baking in the oven. This recipe is like a cheeseburger pizza, only better! Enjoy.
