Bored Cook In The Kitchen

Tried and true recipes, new twists on old favorites, and new dishes to expand my family's palate.

Cheeseburger Pizza Bread

My husband made a few too many cheeseburgers for the kids on Sunday, so I ended up with about 4 medium-sized grilled burgers leftover. 

Leftover burgers don’t really do it for me, so I wasn’t sure what to do with them.  Then I remembered I also had a pound of pizza dough leftover from my son’s pizza making dinner from Saturday, along with tomato sauce and cheese.  All things combined made for a super easy and delicious dinner.

Cheeseburger Pizza Bread:

Serves: 6

  • 1 lb. Pizza Dough (Mine was made fresh from the store)
  • 4 Medium sized cooked cheeseburgers, cooled and broken up
  • 1 1/2 Cups Pizza or Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese (I used Mozzarella)
  • 2 tsp. Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Egg, beaten

Begin by heating the oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, crumble up the cooked and cooled cheeseburgers.  Add the tomato sauce, grated cheese and parmesan.  Stir to combine.

Roll out and stretch your pizza dough to about 15″ L x 12″ W.  Fill with the meat and cheese mixture, keeping the mixture towards the center. 

Fold your sides and ends over and in and pinch well together. 

Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and gently place the pizza dough on top. 

In a small bowl, whisk the egg and brush on the outside of the dough, covering all sides and the top.

Place in the center of your oven and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, being sure to check the dough so it doesn’t burn.   Your want the outside nicely crisp and browned.

Once done, remove from oven and allow to rest for about 15 minutes.  Slide the dough on a cutting board and slice into 2 to 3 inch slices with a serrated knife. 

We ate this with a salad and that was it.  The kids love it and it was filling enough for a main dish for dinner.
