I recently reviewed Boston Pizza’s latest menu item, the Pizzaburger (you can find the review here), and I wasn’t too impressed. I thought I could give the hybrid dish a try, by making my own Pizzaburger.
Instead of wrapping up a burger patty in pizza dough, I decided to make a pizza with the toppings matching the flavour profile of a cheese burger. Due to time constraints this weekend, I bought the pizza dough from my local grocery store, but feel free to make your own. Also feel free to add different spices to the ground beef.
250 g ground beef
2 tbsp paprika
3 tbsp Diana’s Gourmet South Western BBQ Sauce
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated cheddar cheese
¼ white onion
4 bacon strips, cut into bite size pieces
¼ cup Gourmet South Western BBQ Sauce
- Make sure your pizza dough is room temperature, and preheat the oven to 425 F.
- Mix the spices, and BBQ sauce with ground beef, and fry over medium heat until cooked all the way through.
- Cut the onion into strips and set aside.
- On a floured surface, roll out your pizza dough until desired sized. It should be about ¼ inch thick. If you’re making a circle pizza, make sure you retain the shape as you’re rolling.
- Place the dough on a greased pizza pan, and spread the BBQ sauce, leaving the edge clear to serve as the crust.
- Sprinkle half the cheese over the sauce, then place the ground beef and bacon evenly on top of the cheese. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese, and then add the onions.
- Place in the oven for 30 minutes or until done.
