Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

When I think of summer I think of the beach, flip-flops, the smell of sunscreen, pineapple cocktails and burgers.

This past weekend we indulged in almost all of the above – instead of the beach we headed to the pool and we had a twist on a burger.  We put all your favorite burger components on a pizza crust.  And it was amazing.

I opted to use our favorite no-fail pizza crust recipe from Jessica instead of the recipe for the thin-crust dough that was in the original recipe.

And then we piled on the burger, I mean, pizza, I mean, burger toppings:

Pizza sauce (instead of ketchup)

Cooked and crumbled ground beef

Mozzarella for ultimate cheesiness

Pepper Jack cheese for a little KICK

Bacon, cooked and crumbled – because bacon makes everything better

Thinly sliced red onion

Pickles – lots and lots of pickles

The pizza was baked until the crust was browned and cooked through and then I sprinkled on some salad (aka parsley).

You can’t go wrong with a pizza.

And you can’t go wrong with a burger.

So you obviously can’t go wrong by combining the two.
