Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

Bacon Cheeseburger PizzaI have to start by saying how surprised I was to see my wife eat this pizza. Not only eat it, but love it, and have it the next day for lunch, hence why I must document it. Upon frequenting our local pizza/game place (Stonefire Pizza), I notice that my wife always gets one type of pizza out of the 10 or so you can get, and it is not the cheeseburger pizza. On our last visit to Stonefire, I tried the cheeseburger pizza, and immediately thought I could make mine so much better.

This is another recipe that is so easy to make and truly has great results.

Ingredients:

  • Ground Beef, size of a large baseball, cooked
  • Chopped Red Onion
  • Cook Bacon, crumbled
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Ketchup or BBQ Sauce
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Sliced Tomatoes
  • Pizza Dough

You have options on the dough; store bought, or making your own. I like making my own. Begin by cooking your bacon and ground beef. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 450 degrees, and if you have a pizza stone, keep that as part of the preheat. Chop your lettuce, and slice those tomatoes to set aside. Drain off all of the fat from the bacon and ground beef, and set aside. Now, if you have a pizza board, lightly dust with course corn meal as this will help slide the dough onto the stone. Lay the dough on the board and lightly add olive oil and salt and pepper to the dough. Slide this onto your stone and let cook approximately five minutes or until it becomes a light golden brown.

Slide out the oven tray and squeeze a bit of the bbq sauce or ketchup onto the dough. Add a bit of the cheese, then layer on the ground beef, bacon, and red onion. Add more cheese, then put back in the oven for another 7 minutes or so until everything is a deep golden brown and cheeses have melted. Top with the lettuce and tomatoes, then dig in! Trust me, this one is a sure bet.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
