big mac pizza

My sister mentioned that she had made a Big Mac pizza a few weeks ago, and I've been thinking about it ever since! I usually am not a Big Mac fan, but it just sounded really good to me, so I decided to give it a try!

It was delicious, even for a non Big Mac lover! Tasted just like the real thing, only less greasy. (Plus!)

Here it is! Enjoy!

First, I sauteed 1 lb lean ground beef with 1/2 cup chopped onions until the beef was browned and the onions were tender. I also diced about 1/4 cup pickles and 1/2 cup roma tomatoes.

I made my favorite pizza dough and baked it according to directions. Eliza, of course, was a big helper and measured the flour for me! I was glad I'd thought to put her little apron on! The pizza dough covered our 18" x 12" baking sheet.



Then I covered the crust with 12 oz of light thousand islands dressing and topped that with the beef and onions. Then I sprinkled the pickles and tomatoes over the beef and drizzled some yellow mustard over the toppings.



I topped the pizza with 2 cups of Italian style cheese and 2 cups of cheddar cheese and baked the pizza at 425F for 10 minutes. Bake your pizza according to your crust directions.



When it was out of the oven, I sprinkled some chopped lettuce over the top of Ryan's pizza. He likes lettuce on pizza, but I don't care for it. It was so good! Just like a Big Mac only better!



Enjoy!

Love, K
