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!
