We combined two tried-and-true crowd-pleasers—a cheeseburger and a pizza—to make one winning family dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh deli pizza dough
  • 12 ounces ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion (about 1 onion)
  • 3/4 cup jarred pasta sauce
  • 8 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups cups pre-shredded low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pimiento-stuffed green olives
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

How to Make

  1. Place a large, rimmed baking sheet (at least 17 x 11 inches) in oven; preheat to 425°F. (Do not remove while oven preheats.) Unwrap pizza dough, and cover with a kitchen towel. Let dough stand while oven preheats.
  2. Place a large, rimmed baking sheet (at least 17 x 11 inches) in oven; preheat to 425°F. (Do not remove while oven preheats.) Unwrap pizza dough, and cover with a kitchen towel. Let dough stand while oven preheats.
  3. Add mushrooms to hot drippings, and cook, stirring occasionally, until light golden, about 5 minutes. Add onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Remove mushrooms and onions with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels.
  4. Roll dough into a 17- x 11-inch rectangle. Remove preheated pan from oven, and carefully place the dough onto the pan.
  5. Bake in preheated oven just until dough is set, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and top with pizza sauce, beef, mushroom-onion mixture, shredded cheeses, and olives. Drizzle with ketchup.
  6. Return to oven, and bake until crust is golden and cheeses melt and begin to brown in places, about 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
