Easy Mexican Cheeseburger Pizza...



There I was in the kitchen yesterday morning trying to figure out what to have for dinner. I had some pizza dough on hand and we seemed to have an abundance of ground beef, so I thought I would make some type of cheeseburger pizza. As I started to cook I decided to bump up the heat a bit and give it a Mexican flare. It turned out really well and was so quick and easy, I thought I would share.

Mexican Cheeseburger Pizza
Serves 2-4

Pizza dough (enough to cover a 9x13 pan)
Ground beef
About 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
Garlic
Salt and pepper
8 ounces of tomato sauce, homemade or canned
Shredded cheese (I used a Cheddar and Monterey Jack blend but any Mexican-style shredded cheese will work.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease baking pan if needed. Brown your hamburger, adding salt and pepper and minced garlic to taste. Add crushed red pepper to hamburger as it cooks. Roll out your favorite pizza dough (I used fresh dough from Publix’s bakery/deli) on a floured surface so that it will fit shape of pan. Move dough to pan and create an edge all the way around by turning up dough and pinching. Pour tomato sauce over dough, then add cooked hamburger. Carefully mix sauce and hamburger together slightly on top of the dough, adding a little bit of cheese as you go. Once they are all mixed together, top generously with remaining cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes (crust should be brown around the edges and cooked through). Enjoy.
