Pizza Night!

Friday night is almost always pizza night at our house!  It's actually even more exciting now that our son who discovered on his 7th birthday just a couple months ago...that he now likes pizza.  We have waited a long time for this!  I used to have to make two meals on pizza for us and one for king Brady ( I often refer to him as this because we seem to "cater" to his every need...which could be a post in itself!)  Anyway, last Friday we made cheeseburger pizzas and they were awesome!  My pictures didn't turn out so well...maybe one of these days I'll learn to take better photos!  

I used Rhodes dinner rolls (found in freezer section) for pizza crust.  You have to let them rise on the counter for a couple of hours...but it's worth it!

Cheeseburger Pizzas
8 Rhodes Texas or 16 Rhodes Dinner Rolls
1/2 cup ketchup
2 TBS. mustard
3/4 lb. lean ground beef
1 small sweet onion, sliced
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato
1/2 cup hamburger pickles

Press 2 texas rolls or 4 dinner rolls together and roll into an 8 inch circle.  Repeat for remaining rolls.  Place on a large sprayed baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Keep bubbles from forming in middle of pizzas by pressing down on dough 5 minutes into baking cycle.  Remove from oven and set aside.  Combine ketchup and mustard and divide between pizzas.  Add browned burger to pizzas and top with cheese and onion.  Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.  Remove from oven and add lettuce, tomatoes and pickles.

Wow! You made the crust and sauce and everything! I bet they taste just like Cheseburgers.

Mmmm. That sounds really good. We sometimes do make your own pizza nights at our house. I used to make one big pizza, but everyone likes different stuff. So, I started dividing the dough into individual portions and now the boys dress it up however they want.

Hubby is big into homemade pizza, I will have to pass this idea along!
We like to make individual ones too...Janey likes hers without sauce!! Go figure?!:)
Enjoy the day!

Yum! That looks so good. My ballerinas didn't like pizza for the longest time either. What's up with that? Aren't kids supposed to be born loving pizza?!?

We make homemade pizza too. Our favorite is to make them on the grill in the summer.

I am totally going to try those. We make homemade pizza a lot, but I've never used rolls to make it. That looks delicious!

Jenny said...

Oh my goodness, that pizza looks so good I want to lick my monitor! I have never used those rolls but I am definitely going to. Yummo!

Stop right now... that looks so good and you bet, my kids would eat that. If it has the word C
"cheeseburger" and "pizza" in it, it will for sure be a hit! I would love those yummy carb-laden rolls. Bring that on! Thanks so much for sharing, Kerri. I am so glad we found eachother!
