Cheeseburger Pizza

Let’s talk about burger pizza! Obviously, we’re beef loving Texans, and we think there needs to be more beef on pizza!

That is why we created our black and blue pizza (aka steak and blue cheese topped pizza) and today we are bringing you the best ground beef pizza recipe: the cheeseburger pizza!

Cheeseburger pizza ingredients

Ground beef is a versatile ingredient that is always great to have on hand.  

It’s a staple item in our house because it’s freezable, and quality ground beef is still very affordable for any family. 

What’s also special about ground beef is the fact that you get 25 grams of protein in just 3 ounces of beef.

What’s on a cheeseburger pizza?

Just about anything that you’d find between two burger buns!

Our cheeseburger pizza features ground beef sautéed with garlic, diced onion, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, and sliced pickles.

Instead of pizza sauce, we tried using ketchup as the sauce and it was delicious!

We basted our crust with butter and added sesame seeds, just like a burger bun.

Plus a drizzle of special sauce adds an additional kick of flavor!

Looking for other variations? Try adding tomatoes or jalapeños or even making a bacon cheeseburger pizza.

What do you cook your pizza in?

This summer we got a pizza oven, and it instantly became our new favorite gadget.  

What makes cooking in a pizza oven special is the fact that pizza oven temperatures can reach 700 degrees plus, so it only takes a minute to cook this hamburger pizza recipe when the ground beef is pre-cooked.  

If you don’t have a pizza oven, don’t worry because we also made this pizza in our oven and it turned out just as good.  

All you need for an oven is to cook it a bit longer at 450 degrees, and put it on a pizza stone, a cast iron, or a standard baking pan.
