I began by gathering all the necessary ingredients.
I rounded up Joseph’s lavash bread, ketchup, pickles, relish, mustard, light Miracle Whip, a plum tomato, light mozzarella cheese, lettuce and lean ground beef and was ready to begin!
First I preheated the oven to 350 degrees and sprayed a cookie sheet with cooking spray before placing the lavash bread on top.
I then mixed a little more than 3 tbsp. of light Miracle Whip (mayo will also work fine) with 2 tbsp. ketchup and a big ol’ squirt of mustard to make the pizza sauce. The mixture kind of reminded me of Thousand Island dressing, but in a less-complicated way.
I added relish to the mix as well.
I then popped the lavash crust into the oven to crisp a bit while I tended to the beef.
We had leftover burgers from last night, so I got to work crumbling them into burger bites!
After the lavash was warmed and slightly crisp, I pulled it out of the oven and smothered it with the sauce before topping it with the beef crumbles and a generous sprinkling of the light mozzarella cheese.
While this was baking, I sliced the plum tomato to place on the cheesy pizza once it was ready.
The pizza was ready for the toppings once the cheese was ooey-gooey and melted.
I sprinkled the cheeseburger pizza with lettuce, tomato and pickle slices.
I cut the pizza in half and split it between me and Ryan. The portions were nice and big.
We ate our pizza with a side of steamed green beans, broccoli and cauliflower. The cheeseburger goodness was definitely the highlight of the meal and I think our veggies may have felt a little left out. I didn’t even snap a proper picture of the poor greens. 🙁
This meal managed to satisfy two cravings in a healthy, tasty way! Hooray for cheeseburger pizza.
