This pizza started out as an idea (oops, forgot to take meat out of the freezer again...) and ended up not only delicious but frugal as well. We like to keep those premade sirloin patties from Costco in our freezer for summer grilling. We had a few left from that early summertime purchase, I got four out to equal one pound of meat, and the thaw was on!
I had noticed this crazy crust pizza over at SageTrifle. I loved the copy of the original recipe from the bag of flour. I remember groceries being priced like that when I was a kid. It was fun to watch the stock clerk bounce that inked price maker from food item to food item, as the ink was worn off the rubber numbers, they would re-ink and start again. And just like the photo, the ink was a purple-blue in the markets of my childhood.

Vintage recipes are not only fun but they bring back such good memories. I do have to say I adapted the recipe a bit, I wanted a baked crust, to season with mustard and catsup before adding the meat and cheese. Below is the way I made this pizza...

by the seat of my pants
1 pound ground beef, crumbled
1 small onion minced
fresh ground pepper
sliced dill pickles
1 c flour - we used whole wheat
1 t salt
fresh ground pepper
2/3 c milk
1-1 1/2 c grated cheddar cheese or cheddar-Monterey blend
Crumble the beef into a cast iron skillet, add onion, garlic salt and pepper. Cook until beef is broken apart and the onion mixed in. Cover and let simmer while making and baking the crust.

Carefully remove the pan from the oven, season the crust with catsup and mustard. Spoon the beef evenly over the seasoned crust. Add the sliced dill pickles then the cheese. Return to the oven and bake 10 minutes more. Cut into 6 slices.
