Big Mac Pizza

We have pizza night every Friday night at our house. Sometimes we have calzones or stromboli .... but it's all one of the same to me. When you eat the same thing week after week, ya gotta get creative ... and let's just say, we've been creative with our pizza toppings. Truthfully, it's kind of fun for us to come up with new pizzas! 

For a long time (about 15 years), I was on the hunt for the "perfect" pizza crust. I've tried so many variations. I found the "one" about 5 or 6 months ago, thanks to Pinterest! (Don't you just LOVE Pinterest?!?) Seriously, it is everything I want a crust to be ... and it's oh, so close to Pizza Hut crust! If you are still looking for the perfect crust, check this one out from Frugal Upstate. Bookmark it, pin it, write it down .... do whatever you do with recipes you want NEED to try. Do it now, I'll wait!





Big Mac Pizza
Yield: 1 large pizza - 8 slices

Pizza Dough - Make your own, use already made crusts, buy pre-made dough or better yet, use this recipe from Frugal Upstate 

Olive oil (if you're using fresh dough)
Thousand Island salad dressing
6-8 American Cheese slices
1/2 - 3/4 lb. ground beef
Salt and pepper
1-2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Shredded lettuce
Chopped tomatoes (optional)
Thousand Island for serving

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

While oven preheats, brown ground beef with salt and pepper to taste. Drain and set aside.

If using fresh dough, lightly grease a pizza pan or large cookie sheet. Pat dough into pan and drizzle olive oil over the top of the  crust and parbake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven.

Top crust with Thousand Island salad dressing. Using the back of a spoon, spread evenly and close to the edges. Top with American cheese slices (it may not cover the whole pizza, that's ok). Top with browned beef. Top with Cheddar cheese.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

Remove from oven and cut into slices.

To serve, top with shredded lettuce, tomato and additional Thousand Island, if desired.

Hope you enjoy!




I hope you enjoy! Shared at these fun parties!

  1. Love Love Love this idea. We also do a Friday night pizza night here and I totally agree that sometimes it get a little dull. This is a great alternative to pepperoni or veggie and I'm sure we'll give it a try. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday this week. I can't wait to see what you link up next week. Have a wonderful weekend.
