Sometimes ALL the comfort foods sound too good to pick just one. So why not combine two of them? Enter this cheeseburger pizza recipe! All your favorite cheeseburger ingredients piled onto a store-bought pizza crust.

Ingredients

Pro tip
If your grocery store makes take and bake pizzas, they probably sell their own pre-made pizza dough as well! Mine is located near the deli and pre-made salad counter!

How to make

This cheeseburger pizza recipe takes a total of 30 minutes from start to finish!

  1. Heat a large non-skillet over medium heat, add in ground beef and steak seasoning, then cook until the beef is no longer pink. Drain the grease and set aside.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough and spread on fry sauce.
  3. Top with cooked beef, then onions.
  4. Sprinkle evenly with both cheeses and bake on preheated pizza stones in preheated oven until the cheese has melted.
  5. Remove from the oven, top with pickles, lettuce, and tomato, then serve and enjoy!
Pro tip
I LOVE the raw onion taste and texture on this pizza, but if raw onion isn’t your thing, feel free to cook the onions with the beef.

What kind of sauce is on cheeseburger pizza?

The classic cheeseburger pizza sauce is fry sauce—a ketchup and mayo-based condiment with a sweet, spicy, and tangy twist. You can buy it at some stores, but I love my homemade fry sauce recipe!

Variations

  • Use a different sauce. Try BBQ sauce, honey mustard, or chick-fil-a sauce!
  • Try other toppings. Any burger toppings will work! Mushrooms, avocado, bacon, caramelized onions, blue cheese crumbles, etc.
  • Use another cheese. Try pepperjack for a spicy twist or gouda for a rich, nutty flavor. Anything goes!
  • Spice it up. Heat things up with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or a drizzle of hot sauce.
  • Make it vegetarian. Use a meatless “beef” variety.

What to serve with cheeseburger pizza?

This cheeseburger pizza is delicious on its own but I also love to serve it up with some yummy sides!

How to store

Store leftover pizza in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for 1-2 months.

To reheat, thaw overnight in the fridge then bake or microwave to warm.
