What happens when you take two favorites and mash them together? The best pizza ever! Cheeseburger Pizza!
The biggest question here is: what do you like on your burger? Err… pizza? For me, it really depends on my mood. I do love a specialty burger. Perhaps a cowboy burger with crispy onion straws, BBQ sauce, cheese and honey habanero pickles. Or maybe even a Taco Burger with traditional Mexican fixings. For pizza, there is nothing quite like a Fiery Hawaiian or Caribbean Jerk Chicken with a sweet honey finish.
But there is nothing like a classic cheeseburger. Or a classic pizza, for that matter. So what not take the two and mash them together? Like those silly commercials where two ingredients go running at each full force to create a new magical flavor. Well, consider Cheeseburger Pizza like that.
I like to think about the Jimmy Buffet song, Cheeseburger in Paradise. “I like mine with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes.” Lettuce and tomato it is! Along with some other classic condiments like mustard, mayonnaise and red onion. The possibilities are endless and you can even tailor each quadrant of the pizza to individual people to adjust to their tastes.
