A Cheeseburger Pizza Recipe is just what your Friday Night Pizza Night calls for! Two kinds of take-out combined in one!

This Cheeseburger Pizza is made with the best homemade pizza dough recipe ever  as it’s base. Then, you build it up just like you would if it were a burger! Don’t let the ketchup base fool you! At first, I turned my nose up at the idea, but I went ahead and did it anyway. And,  it was a hit!

A Cheeseburger Pizza, with ketchup?

When I first came across the concept of a Cheeseburger Pizza, I didn’t think that it would have ketchup for a sauce. I was thinking more along the lines of a pizza sauce with cheeseburger toppings. So, when I was looking at recipes the day I made this, to see what other people did to make a Cheeseburger Pizza, I was surprised to see it included ketchup!

Now, ketchup and me, we are not the best of buds. I like it on my burgers and to dip my fries into, but when it comes to anything else, I basically leave it alone. The recipe I based this pizza on is no longer on the internet and inaccessible. It was the one and only recipe that I saw that incorporated ketchup, mustard, tomato paste, and sugar. I see several around that have ketchup and mayonnaise, but this sauce seems to be one of its own.

Ways to top your cheeseburger pizza

When it comes right down to it, you can top your pizza any way you want to. Don’t want ketchup? Use pizza sauce. The pizza police will not come after you!

  • Make it a Deluxe and sprinkle with shredded lettuce, tomato, onion, and chopped cooked bacon.
  • For a BLAT Cheeseburger Pizza, top with sliced avocado, bacon, lettuce, and tomato and drizzle with chipotle ranch sauce.
  • How about a Cool Ranch Nacho Pizza topped with shredded lettuce, tomato, onion, and crushed Nacho Cheese or cool ranch Doritos
  • Swap out the dill pickles and use some of Nanny’s 7 Day Sweet Pickles on top instead!

How to make a Cheeseburger Pizza

It all starts with a great pizza dough recipe. You can either make your own or buy a premade dough. Whatever is easiest for you.
