National Cheese Lovers Day:
Bacon Double Cheeseburger Pizza
Makes 1 x 12/16" pizza
250/330 g classic pizza dough balls
5 tbsp (90 ml) classic pizza sauce
3.5oz (100 g) cooked ground beef, crumbled
1.5oz (50 g) mozzarella, broken into chunks 1.5oz (50 g) American cheese, cut into small pieces
2 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled
1 dill pickle, sliced crosswise
3 lettuce leaves, finely shredded
For the burger sauce:
4 tbsp (80ml) mayonnaise
2 tbsp (40ml) ketchup
2 tsp (10g) sugar
1 tbsp (20ml) white wine vinegar
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1 tsp (20ml) Dijon mustard
Prepare your classic pizza dough and classic pizza sauce ahead of time.
For the burger sauce, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Preheat your Ooni pizza oven to 500˚C (932˚F). Use the Ooni Infrared Thermometer to check the temperature inside the oven.
Sprinkle your Ooni pizza peel with a light dusting of flour. Place the dough ball down and flatten with the palm of your hand.
Press the dough gently with the tips of your fingers, working from the center to the outer “crust”. Gently pick up the dough and stretch it out to 12 or 16”, allowing the weight of the dough to stretch it. Spread the classic pizza sauce evenly across the dough, leaving a 1 inch border for the crust.
Evenly top pizza with the cheese and evenly crumble the cooked beef and bacon on top. Slide your dressed pizza off the peel and into your Ooni pizza oven.
Cook the pizza, rotating frequently, until the cheese is melted and the crust is crisp with small charred bubbles. In your Ooni pizza oven, this only takes a few minutes!
Remove the pizza from the oven and let cool for one minute to allow the cheese to firm up slightly. Scatter the slices of pickle across the pizza and top with the shredded lettuce.
Finish the pizza with thin ribbons of burger sauce drizzled on top.
