  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

For the Toppings:

  • 1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup diced pickles
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • Optional: crumbled bacon, lettuce, sesame seeds

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Preparing the Pizza Dough

  1. Activate the Yeast: In a small bowl, dissolve the active dry yeast in warm water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. Mix the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, olive oil, sugar, and salt. Pour in the yeast mixture and stir until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the Dough: Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes, until smooth and elastic.
  4. Let It Rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until it doubles in size.

2. Making the Cheeseburger Sauce

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a medium bowl, mix together the ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  2. Stir Well: Ensure all ingredients are thoroughly combined to create a smooth and flavorful sauce.

3. Assembling the Pizza

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C).
  2. Roll Out the Dough: Once the dough has risen, punch it down and transfer it to a floured surface. Roll it out to your desired thickness.
  3. Add the Sauce: Spread a generous layer of the cheeseburger sauce over the rolled-out pizza dough.
  4. Layer the Toppings: Sprinkle the cooked ground beef evenly over the sauce. Follow with the diced onions, pickles, and halved cherry tomatoes. Lastly, cover with shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

4. Baking the Pizza

  1. Bake: Transfer the assembled pizza onto a pizza stone or baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and melted.

5. Serving Suggestions

  • Classic Cheeseburger Style: Garnish your Cheeseburger Pizza with crumbled bacon and fresh lettuce after baking.
  • Dipping Sauces: Serve with a side of extra cheeseburger sauce or ranch dressing for dipping.
  • Complementary Sides: Pair with a simple green salad or crispy French fries for a complete meal.
