Cheeseburger Pizza

Sharing is caring!

The best of pizza and cheeseburgers are combined to make this family-friendly Cheeseburger Pizza. It is topped with a special cheeseburger-style sauce, dill pickles, roma tomatoes, bacon, ground beef, and plenty of cheddar and mozzarella cheese.

I first had a cheeseburger pizza years and years ago at a local pizza restaurant chain, Wolfman Pizza, and it quickly became one of my favorite pizzas.


I tend to be a big fan of the nontraditional pizzas in general. Replicating a cheeseburger pizza at home actually turned out to be quite easy.

I used a prebaked crust to make this pizza super easy, but you could make a homemade dough or use store-bought pizza dough. The sauce is my favorite thing about the pizza. It’s made from a mixture of ketchup and mustard and gives the pizza a little zip. I like to mix a little of it into the browned ground beef for extra flavor. Dill pickles on a pizza may sound strange at first, but it really works with the sauce and the other ingredients.

Print Recipe



  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 3/4 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 1/3 cup diced green pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 1 prebaked thin pizza crust, such as Boboli
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup diced dill pickle
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a pizza stone in the oven if you have one.
  • In a small bowl mix together ketchup and mustard to make sauce.
  • In a large skillet, sauté ground beef for 3 to 4 minutes, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon. Add onion and green pepper and continue to cook until meat is no longer pink. Spoon off any excess grease.
  • Add salt and steak seasoning to ground beef mixture. Mix 1 tablespoon of sauce into ground beef mixture.
  • Spread some sauce on the pizza crust. I just add a thin layer of sauce. You can always drizzle additional sauce on top of the pizza.
  • Sprinkle half of the cheddar cheese and half of the mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.
  • Spoon the ground beef mixture onto the pizza crust and sprinkle with bacon and pickles.
  • Top with remaining cheese and roma tomato slices.
  • Place on baking stone, directly on oven rack, or on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

  1. This pizza was truly awesome. The only changes I made was I left out the pickles and added some bbq sauce to the ketchup and mustard sauce mixture- both for personal preference… this was awesome and devoured by everyone. We range in age from 5 to 76 so a diverse group here. My son loved it!

  2. Thank You Christin, have been making pizzas the last 5 months, due to virus issues. Made this today for my wife, we both loved it. Made it half size on home made pizza dough we have learned to make. Absolute appreciate your recipe. Thank you.

  3. I made this pizza and it was absolutely delicious. Going to make it again this weekend. Do you have the ]Annenutrition info in it by any chance?

  4. I built a wood fired clay/brick bread/pizza oven last summer and I thought this would be great in this oven. I was wrong, It was the best pizza I have ever made!! Everyone loved it. I used Alder wood and my own homemade pizza dough , out standing. Only problem I found was now everyone wants to come over on saturdays for Pizza! Oh I did switch the bell pepper for Ortega green chilies…..Thank you for inspiring me to try this recipe…

  5. I made this for the first time last night- and right now I’m eating leftovers. This is the best “gourmet” pizza I have had! Thank you!


  6. YUM! This looks delicious!! I haven’t had pizza in almost a year and a half (unless you count gluten free pizza… which I don’t)… but a couple of months ago my dr. said I could add gluten back into my diet!! So I’m looking forward to my pizza! Haha… I work as a waitress at a stay away resort… and they don’t have pizza on the menu and I want my first slice to be amazing!! SO I’m waiting for a little pizzeria!! :)… or some delicious homemade pizza like this!!! Lovely recipe!!
