Cheeseburger Pizza Night is something your whole family will love to see on the calendar. It’s a combination of two of my favorite comfort foods — cheeseburgers and pizza. What’s not to love, right?
Most of these items you probably already have on hand. You already know I love to keep pizza dough around just for this occasion! If you’re like me and also have pre-made pizza dough on hand, your dinner will be on the table in 20 minutes flat.
This recipe is for a super basic cheeseburger, so it’s the perfect canvas to get adventurous with toppings, cheeses or sauces. If you’re like us, we love ranch with our pizza so next time I’ll drizzle a little of it over the top.
To complete the burger experience (and make yourself feel better about doubling up on those comfort foods), you can whip up a tasty side salad and top it off with this homemade Dill Pickle Dressing.
Pickle Juice Side Salad
Dill Pickle Dressing Ingredients:
• 1/3 c. Mayo
• 2 Tbsp. Pickle Juice
• Salt and Pepper to taste
Simply whisk the mayonnaise, pickle juice, salt and pepper, and drizzle over your favorite salad mix topped with tomatoes.
