One night a week we have a designated family night. Sure we spend plenty, and I mean pleeenty of time together the other nights but on our family night we all know that it’s a night for us to spend together. No electronics, no distractions…just us. Of course when you say pizza is for dinner, there aren’t any complaints. Making our own pizza, even better. While the pizza is baking or after we’ve eaten, we either watch a family movie or their latest obsession, playing Spoons.Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza - your favorite cheeseburger toppings piled on top of a pizza crust. {The GIrl Who Ate Everything}

I’ve partnered with Pillsbury Pizza Crust for a family friendly pizza idea today. I thought why not make a bacon cheeseburger pizza. It can only be good and I knew my family would go for it.

Some of my friends are sharing their creative pizza ideas today too so make sure to check out these:

The sauce on this pizza is a mixture of ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and relish. Wait, wait. Stay with me. I know that sounds odd, but it works. Regular pizza sauce is tomato based so ketchup isn’t that far off. Believe me when I say that the sauce makes it. I’m not a huge pickle lover but relish in the sauce gives that pickle flavor without being overwhelming.

    Okay, if my boys see this, they’re gonna want to do a mama swap! 😉 Looks mmmm-AZING! We’re so making this for pizza night soon! Love it!

  3. Ok, this looks amazing! I can’t wait for pizza night now!

  4. Love this, especially with that sauce. So fun!

  5. This looks amazing! I know my husband would go crazy over this. Can’t wait to try it!

  6. What a brilliant idea putting those pickles on top! My husband would just adore this!!

  7. I love the idea of putting pickles on.

  8. LOVE the combination of bacon cheeseburger and pizza! This looks amazing!

  9. Looks soo delicious, cheeseburger pizza, this is something I will really like:)

  10. I didn’t realized Pillsbury did a pizza crust. We are huge Pillsbury lovers and this looks like a great use of their products. I think I might just have to give this burger pizza a try…and I am definitely adding pickles! The idea of pickles on pizza is just intriguing!

  11. One of the local pizza joints here makes a version of this! I thought it looked disgusting at first, but once I tried it, I was hooked! You totally have me craving this right now!

  12. Ashley Kriegh says:

    My sister-in-law just told me about this super simple pizza crust recipe. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but she said it’s awesome! 1c plain Greek yogurt + 1c self rising flour.. Worth a try!

  13. So if I don’t own said “pizza pan” (college probz) would it be fine to bake this on a regular cookie sheet?

  14. I made this tonight and it was really good! Cheeseburger pizza was never something that really appealed to me before, but your version with the pickles made me want to try it. I’m so glad I did!

  15. I just made this and wanted to say it’s a hit! The only changes I made were: adding two minced garlic cloves to the onion/ground beef mixture and adding fresh jalapeno slices to the guys’ side of the pizza. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe–right down to using Pillsbury pizza dough. It was fantastic. When I asked my twenty year-old brother how it was he came into the kitchen, hugged me and said, “This is awesome. Add it to the make-again list!” So, thank you!

  16. Dreadful.

  17. I don’t know why someone have this recipe 1 star with a one word description. I’ve made it a few times and we love it!

  18. This is an amazing pizza. It has become a family favorite. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us. 😊
