BBQ Cheeseburger Pizza

Cheeseburger Pizza

When I saw this pizza last week on Dawn's most excellent site, I knew I was going to be making it in the very near future. Doesn't it sound awesome, combining two foods into one delicious thing? I still have some rosemary pizza dough in my freezer, but I didn't think it would go with this combination so I quickly whipped up the dough I have used in a few pizzas before, but since I was lazy and didn't prep the night before, I used the dough the same day I made it. This is an insanely delicious pizza. It has heart attack written all over it, but since I have been working out a lot more (with all that free time on my hands), I really didn't feel as guilty about eating it. Plus, I made sure the beef and bacon were well drained before putting them on top of the pizza. Normally I favor a very thin crust on my pizza, but this time I tried to keep the crust a little thicker to be able to withstand the toppings. To get it to the size I wanted, it ended up being a little thinner than I expected, but I didn't mind. Since it's Memorial Day weekend and people are getting into the grilling mood, I think this pizza would be a great addition to any barbecue. I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Cheeseburger Pizza Slice

BBQ Cheeseburger Pizza
(From Vanilla Sugar)

Pizza dough
Ground beef, cooked and crumbled
Bacon, sliced and cooked
Thinly sliced onions
BBQ Sauce
Red pepper flakes (omit if using a spicy BBQ sauce)
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Extra-virgin olive oil for brushing

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Roll out the pizza dough to desired thinness and place on the baking sheet. Mix the barbecue sauce with red pepper flakes if using. Spread a thin layer of barbecue sauce over the dough. Spread a layer of cheese over the sauce and then top with the bacon and ground beef. Lay the onions over the meat, overlapping if desired. Brush the edges of the dough with olive oil and bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and browned.

Oh my! You made it! You know I seriously want to try doing it with a thin crust, and after seeing yours I know it can be done very well with the heavy toppings and all.

Looks great! I have been on a pizza kick for some time now and actually made a post last night that I will be sharing as well. I think it is all in the crust and it looks like you nailed it. You might be interested in these two as well.
