A new way to eat a cheeseburger!

While browing for different types of pizzas one day, I came across one that I thought might really appeal to my Grumpy. Grumpy loves to get the meat lover’s pizza whenever we go out for pizza. Tastespotting led me to “For the Love of Food” blog. The Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza looked so good that I had to click!

I admit, I did not entirely read the recipe before I decided to make it. Then, last night, when I prepared to make the recipe, I found that the sauce was not a traditional pizza sauce, but one made with ketchup, mustard, tomato paste, and sugar. This kind of scared me because I thought, how can I put that on a pizza crust?? Well, DO IT! I told myself to follow the recipe and not let the uneasy feeling in my stomach take over. While I was preparing the recipe, Grumpy came out into the kitchen and saw the sauce mix on the counter. Of course, his first question was “what is that”. I decided to be totally honest (I’m not a good liar anyway!) and told him it was a ketchup/mustard mixture. He didn’t tell me I was nuts or anything (how suprising! lol). I voiced my concern, but said I was going to try it and if we didn’t like it I just wouldn’t do it again!

I want to mention also that the idea of the soy sauce soaking into the hamburger is an excellent idea! This really gave the meat some flavor. I didn’t have garlic powder (bad me, I keep forgetting to buy more!) so I used minced garlic. I also didn’t use gouda or american cheese. I didn’t think Grumpy would appreciate the gouda and I don’t care for american. I used a mixture of montery jack and colby cheese.

Let’s say the pizza was a hit! I ate one piece and the Grumpster ate 5 slices! There are two slices in the fridge waiting for Chris! I will most definitely make this again in the future. Thanks to For the Love of Food for this creation!

    It’s good to try weird-sounding things now and then! But really, it’s mostly the name that makes it sound so, and meat, bacon and cheese on a pizza can’t be bad, really. Pizza is a bit tricky I think, I never get the crust to look as round and even and neat as yours looks. :)

    Nice looking pizza! The bacon double cheese burger pizza is one of my favorite pizzas to get when I order pizza. I will have to try making it a home.

    My husband would like this one too; he is like Grumpy, meat-galore pizza for him!
    Look who is ‘writing’! Extra bacon for me!!! :)))

    Thanks for stopping by my blog HoneyB and for all your sincere comments. You’re too sweet!

    This pizza looks really interesting. Since my son loves to mix ketchup and mustard together anyway, this might be just his thing.

    PS I’m adding you to my reader!

    I always get nervous when stepping out of my comfort zone. Ketchup sounds like a quick sauce solution for pizza…. humm, I have to try that because I hate spending hours on a sauce that we use 1/2 cup for our homemade pizza which BTW is suppose to be an easy dinner. Thank you for posting this recipe. My son has a swim meet this weekend & we have to carbo-load him so that he has all the energy – this is perfect for that.
