BigMac Pizza

Monday, September 12, 2011

It is that time of the year again, football season. Our Sundays are now dedicated to the TV, well at least my husband's are. For me this means cooking season. Even though I can't follow a football game to save my life, I love to get in on the hype and cook up some festive treats for each game.

For yesterdays game we had one of my husbands favorites, BigMac Pizza. He is always amazed at how much it really does taste like a BigMac.

This is the ultimate guy meal. So for all you ladies out there who want to cook your way to a mans heart, follow the directions below!

one dough ball (or prepared pizza crust)
1 lb ground hamburg (substitute with ground turkey for a healthier alternative)
6 or so pieces of American cheese
chopped tomatoes 
chopped red onion
chopped iceberg lettuce
chopped dill pickles
3 tablespoons or so of thousand island dressing 
2 tablespoons or so of ketchup 
olive oil 

Preheat oven to 350. Roll out dough and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. (If you are using a prepared crust, follow the package cooking directions.) Meanwhile brown hamburg in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the hamburg is just about down add a few squeezes of ketchup. Remove dough from oven. It should be cooked about half way, just before browning.
Add a little olive oil to the top of the crust and then add hamburg. Layer on some American cheese and finish cooking in the oven until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Once dough is cooked (about 20 minutes) remove and add on thousand island dressing and veggies.
Pop the pizza back in the oven for about 5 minutes just to get all the veggies warm.
Slice and serve! Add a little ketchup and mustard if you so please.

Hope you enjoy!


  1. I think this Big Mac Pizza looks great. Did you have an idea for a side dish that I could have or was it filling enough on its own? It looks great I am going to try the recipe this weekend.

  2. It really is filling on its own. You definitely don't need a side dish, but it would go great with a beer! : )

  3. Great idea or a glass of red wine
