Easy Cheeseburger Pizza, knife and fork style

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This pizza started out as an idea (oops, forgot to take the 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......

For the crust, combine the flour, salt, pepper, eggs, and milk. Beat until smooth. Pour into a large flat bottom pan (Jelly roll pan) or 2 9 inch cake pans.

Drizzle the batter in each pan(s) with catsup and mustard. Spoon the beef evenly, add the sliced dill pickles then the cheese. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until done in your oven. Cut and serve.

  3. A different take on pizza for sure. Looks quite tasty. Did you like it as well as yeast dough pizza?

    1. Honestly not as well, but for something like this, where you are having fun, it is perfect. But you see I love bread, yeasty chewy bread.

  4. Oh I like this idea of a pizza. We usually make a more traditional pizza with a red sauce, but this sounds awesome. I remember those purple prices too.

    1. This was fun to make, and really delicious. We made it a second time the other day when the granddaughter was here to visit.

  5. Sounds like a pizza the boys would love! Thanks for sharing at Funtastic Friday!
