Cheeseburger Pizza Recipe


If you follow this blog you know how much I enjoy eating cheeseburgers. I thought why not put the delicious ingredients of a hamburger onto a pizza? This pizza has all of the toppings of a cheeseburger. The toppings include cheese, ground beef, bacon, pickles, lettuce and tomato. Some recipes used ketchup and mustard for the sauce, but that didn’t sounds good to me so I went with pizza sauce instead. Using a pre-baked crust will help to save time and make this a very easy recipe to prepare. Enjoy.

Ingredients:
1/2 lb ground beef
1 pre-baked 12 inch pizza crust
½ cup pizza sauce
6 bacon strips (cooked until crispy, and crumbled)
20 dill round pickle slices
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
2 roma tomatoes (chopped)

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees. In a medium skillet cook ground beef over medium heat until no longer drink. Drain the grease and set aside.
Step 2: Place the pre-baked crust onto a pizza pan. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over the crust. Top with cooked ground beef, bacon, pickles and cheese. Place into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Step 3: Remove from the oven, slice and top with lettuce and tomato.

    One of the best details you have is the lettuce and tomato resting nicely on top. Any time I’ve seen a cheeseburger pizza it’s been just cheese and beef.

    This is a fantastic recipe even if the pickles seem a little crazy.

    I love cheeseburger pizza! I worked at a pizza place that served an excellent version.

    They substituted 1/2 of the pizza sauce for an equal amount of mustard (we used brown mustard, but I suppose any can be used). Gives it a great ZING that matches the whole dish beautifully (especially those pickles… YUM!)

    Also, the pickles are easier to eat if they’re diced, not in hamburger slices like that, imho.

    Instead of pizza sauce, combine 3/4 cup of ketchup, 1/4 c of yellow mustard, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce and cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.

    I also add Montreal Steak seasoning to the beef while browning and onion.

    Made this the other night and we LOVED it. Tried it at a pizza place awhile ago but your recipe was much better. My husband’s only complaint was there weren’t enough pickles. =) So next time I am going to add some more, plus maybe add a tiny bit of mustard. Thanks for a great meal night!

    This would be even better if the pickle slices were deep fried and placed on top at the end. Also, I would do 1/2 marinara 1/2 ketchup.

    chris – I have never tried putting on mayo instead of the pizza sauce, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. If you do try it, please let everyone know how it turns out. Thanks.

    This was incredible ~ LOVED it. So glad I found this recipe again. I used Elaine’s advice and think the mustard/ketchup concoction really makes it taste more like a ‘burger’. Soo good-thanks to everyone for sharing.
