Cheeseburger Pizza

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.

Next time you can’t decide between making pizza or cheeseburgers for dinner, make life easy and just go for the Cheeseburger Pizza. It’s fun, easy, and delicious. Pair it with a simple green salad for a quick weeknight meal.

Cheeseburger Pizza

A fun, easy pizza that combines two favorite foods- pizza and cheeseburgers. Bacon, ground beef, dill pickles, tomatoes, and a special sauce give this pizza tons of flavor.
PREP: 20 minutes
COOK: 12 minutes
TOTAL: 32 minutes



  • 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. I’m making this tonight! If you’re referring to Wolfman Pizza in Charlotte, NC, I actually worked there over 25 years ago when I was in high school 😆

  2. Wonderful!! Took it to a neighbour’s party and everyone loved it!! Used a low carb pizza crust as well.
    No one knew😊

  3. Made this on thin pizzacrust because we like crisp. It was great. Left off the dills …not big fans of pickles on burgers.

  4. 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!
