Cheeseburger Pizza

cheeseburger pizza recipe
I know I am normally all about the healthier recipes, but I couldn’t resist sharing this delicious, and not so healthy, pizza recipe with you! For those of you who have been following along for awhile, you know Friday night is pizza night in our house. I love experimenting with different ingredients for fun, new pizzas {Two of my all-time favorite are here {just made this Friday night!} and here {my husband’s favorite combination}.
I’m not a huge meat person but I do love a good burger — I know, crazy right?! I don’t cook meat too often at home truthfully because I don’t like handling it, but I know how much my husband loves it so I do try to make it occasionally. I started experimenting with the idea of a cheeseburger pizza at the end of last year {if you follow me on Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7} you may remember seeing a few pictures of it!}. But, I wanted to make it a few times to get the recipe down before I shared it with all of you! And, let me just say, this pizza is AMAZING. It literally tastes like you are eating a burger. I feel like I am pretty well-versed when it comes to pizza making and I think this might be my favorite one yet — says the almost vegetarian 🙂
Like with many of my recipes, you can totally customize this to how you would create your own burger. Although I would never want pickles on a burger, I did add them to the pizza and it gave the entire pizza an amazing flavor!

Cheeseburger Pizza

{what you will need}

1 pound ground beef {I used 90/10}
2 tablespoons + 1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons low fat mayo
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 pint grape tomatoes, chopped
1/4 small red onion, chopped
1/3 cup hamburger dill pickles, chopped
1/3 cup shredded lettuce
Store-bought pizza dough
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Begin by browning the ground beef over medium heat until it is cooked through and no longer pink. Reduce the heat to low and add 1/3 cup ketchup, yellow and Dijon mustards and the barbecue sauce. Mix to combine completely and set aside. In a small bowl, mix the remaining ketchup {2 tablespoons} with the mayo to create the pizza’s “sauce”. Place the pizza dough onto a pizza stone or pan and spread the ketchup and mayo mixture over the dough. Add the ground beef on top of the sauce and continue with the remaining toppings: cheddar cheese, tomatoes, red onion and pickles. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Remove the pizza from the oven and top with the shredded lettuce. Allow to sit for a few minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy! 
Thanks for dropping by and happy cooking!
