My husband's favorite foods are pizza and cheeseburgers, so I combined the two in a pie with mayo and dill pickle juice. People who try this cheeseburger pizza always laugh in surprise because it's so good. —Angie Zimmerman, Eureka, Illinois

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 prebaked 12-inch pizza crust
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup prepared mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickle
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons dill pickle juice


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 3-4 minutes, breaking it into crumbles; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, place crust on an ungreased baking sheet or pizza pan. Mix ketchup and mustard; spread over crust. Add ground beef; bake 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; bake until cheese is bubbly and crust is lightly browned, 8-10 minutes longer.
  3. Top with lettuce, pickle and onion. Whisk mayonnaise and enough pickle juice to reach desired consistency; drizzle over pizza.
Cheeseburger Pizza Tips

What else can you put on cheeseburger pizza?

Brushing the edges of the pizza crust with melted butter and sprinkling sesame seeds over top prior to baking really gives the pizza the classic cheeseburger look. The beauty of this pizza is that you can add whatever toppings you love on your cheeseburger, and it’s sure to be a hit. If you want to try out a different sauce, we recommend our fry sauce for a tangy twist!

How long will leftover cheeseburger pizza last?

If stored in an airtight container, this pizza should last in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you are ready to reheat it, check out this helpful tip for avoiding soggy pizza.

Can you make cheeseburger pizza ahead of time?

If you're trying to plan ahead, consider preparing the beef and sauce mixtures the day before, then storing them separately. We do not recommend assembling and baking the pizza until ready to serve or you run the risk of a soggy crust.
