Da BIG Cheeseburger Pizza

07bBakedToppedbfLOHere it is – the culmination of three days of posting and planning! And you know what?

It’s not too, too bad!

I’ve always kind of liked the idea of this pizza – especially how it tastes almost exactly like that two all-beef patties… sammich from that place down (every) street. Rich has 02dSpecialSaucebfLOnever really felt the love – opining that, if he should WANT a ‘two all-beef patty…’ sammich, he could easily drive down any one of several streets nearby to have one.

I say pshaw! No one expects you to be able to make this sucker at home – so why not confound your friends and amaze your enemies?

At the very worst, this whole process will only take a day or so – and most of THAT to let the flavors in the special sauce meld.

06aDoughPanbfLONext, we make the dough – very nice, I highly recommend this recipe – but if you can’t be bothered, a Boboli will work.

OK, the sauce is special and the dough is done – on to the grand finale:

•1/2 lb ground beef
•1 onion, chopped
•1 cup special sauce – You COULD use Thousand Island dressing – but you would be WRONG – I’m jus’ sayin’…
06bDoughSaucebfLO•1 pre-baked pizza crust (homemade or store-bought)
•1 cup sliced or shredded American cheese
•2 cups shredded lettuce
•Chopped dill pickle
•Tomato, diced

Cook the ground beef and chopped onion, stirring  often, in a large skillet over medium high heat until well browned.

Season with salt and pepper and drain well.

07aBakedCheesebfLOPreheat the oven to 450º.

Spread special sauce on the pizza crust, top with a layer of ground beef and onion. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Bake for about ten minutes in the top third of the oven, until cheese is melted. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice into wedges and top with lettuce, tomato, and pickles.

More, please…
