Cheeseburger Pizza

Eric suggested grilling burgers for Friday this week. I thought a cheeseburger pizza would be another option.  Too lazy to grill burgers!  I did have leftover topping and we will use that on a roll like a Sloppy Joe for leftovers this weekend. Everyone really liked this pizza.   No complaints in this house!! Super simple and quite delicious.

1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup ketchup
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 cup diced dill pickles
2 cups cheddar
1/4 cup ketchup (for base of pizza)

1.  Brown the ground beef.  Drain off fat.
2.  Put ground beef in medium bowl and add ketchup, mustard and diced dill pickles. Mix together.
3.  Top the pizza with 1/4 cup of ketchup, 1/2 the ground beef mixture (freeze the other half for next time or use for Sloppy Joes!) and shredded cheddar (or whatever cheese you like).
4.  Bake at 475 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  I set the timer for 5 minutes and turn the pizza stone half way around.  That makes for a more even golden crust.   ENJOY!!

Tip for you; When you prepare your dough  use parchment paper, lightly floured.  That prevents the dough from sticking to your wooden peel.  Works every time!
