CHEESEBURGER THIN-CRUST PIZZA




                                Here is a pic of the dough ball - lovely, soft and malleable!!



Mozzarella cheeses that I have successfully used with the Miracle Dough and The Sweet Miracle Pastry Dough as well.  I get mine from Price Smart in Central (technically South America) America, which is the same as Costco in the United States.

I tried this one a couple of times

I usually grate my own cheese using my 20-year old Braun food processor, which has a ton of gadgets - this is the cheese I use most often - looks like it might be very similar to the one above, however, I think they sometimes add something to their grated cheese to help it last longer.  I could be wrong.  CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO SEE A BIGGER IMAGE.



CHEESEBURGER THIN-CRUST PIZZA 

Lovely thin-crust pizza with a delicious sauce.  The toppings are flexible, depending on what you like.  The next day I like to warm a couple of slices in the microwave oven briefly and then fry in light-tasting olive oil in a nonstick pan until crispy underneath. This dough is nothing short of amazing!  It rolls out perfectly (very easy to work with) and fills a large pizza pan.  It is a crispy thin crust that tastes fantastic! Towards the center the crust is slightly softer, not unlike regular pizzas as well. The carbs are pretty low per slice, too, so that’s a bonus!

Cheeseburger Topping:

1 lb lean ground beef (0.45 kg)

1 tsp seasoning salt (5 mL)

1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

1 cup grated Cheddar cheese, OR (250 mL)

  Mozzarella cheese

2 Roma tomatoes  

Pickle coins, optional

Chopped onions, optional


Miracle Dough Pizza Crust:

2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese (500 mL)

2 tbsp melted butter (30 mL0

1 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (250 mL)*
  (For Grain-Free version scroll down OR use Grain-Free Bake Mix 

  OR Keto Bake Mix)

1 egg, fork beaten

1/tsp onion salt (1 mL)

1/tsp garlic powder (1 mL)


Cheeseburger Pizza Sauce:

1/4 cup tomato paste (60 mL)

2 tbsp mayonnaise (30 mL)

1 tbsp mustard (15 mL)

 

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). 

Cheeseburger Topping:  In nonstick frying pan, cook ground beef until turning brown.  Add seasoning salt and black pepper while cooking.  Set aside. 

Miracle Dough Pizza Crust: In microwave oven in microwaveable bowl, melt Mozzarella cheese.  This took 1 minute 40 seconds in my microwave oven. Remove with oven gloves (be very careful!).  Add melted butter. Place Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR alternative bake mix on top. In small bowl, beat egg with fork.  Add onion salt and garlic powder.  Add to Mozzarella cheese. Stir with a fork or mixing spoon to form a dough ball.  Place on large greased pizza pan.  Using plastic wrap placed over the dough and a rolling pin or cylindrical can, roll dough out to fit the pizza pan.  I have a special, small rolling pin for pies and that worked really well.  

Bake 10 minutes on the middle shelf.  Remove.  Add Cheeseburger Pizza Sauce and toppings and bake another 8 to 15 minutes, depending, to get to that lovely golden brown stage (under crust), however, you don't want the crust too dark. The crust will crisp up as you let it sit for 5 minutes before cutting (use a kitchen scissors) and eating.  The next day, fry pieces of pizza in a nonstick frying pan in a little light-tasting olive oil until crispy underneath (actually it crisps up much more as it cools, so don't let it darken too much), flip briefly to warm the top and serve (I usually nuke the pizza slice briefly and then cook it in the frying pan, but you can skip it and do all the warming in the pan. 

Cheeseburger Pizza Sauce: In small bowl, combine tomato paste, mayonnaise and mustard. 

*For a Grain-Free version, use a bake mix made up of 2 cups (500 mL) almond flour and 2/3 cup (150 mL) coconut flour.  Use 3/4  cup (175 mL) of the mixture.  Or, simply use 2/3 cup (150 mL) almond flour and 2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut flour for each batch of Miracle Dough (I have not tested this smaller version, but the Grain-Free Bake mix - yes!).   OR you can use the Keto Bake Mix (typically 1 g carb less per serving in a recipe).
