Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza Copycat Recipe

If you love a classic pizza with marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and onion, then you are well within your right mind. The same is true if you love a classic cheeseburger with toppings. While you might not have thought of it before, it's actually not crazy to meet right in the middle of those two. In fact, it's rather brilliant. Thus the popularity of the Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza. Or, in this case, the Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat that you make yourself at home.

Is it closer to a pizza or a cheeseburger? That's really a matter of subjectivity. Is it "delicious with fries and salad [and] also great with tater tots" as chef, food writer, and registered dietician Kristen Carli says? Yes. That's not up for debate. 

Along with the unique, delicious taste of this Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat recipe, you'll also appreciate how very easy it is to make. This recipe relies on a pre-made store-bought dough, which is why the entire prep time is all of ten minutes. "This would work well with homemade dough too," says Carli, but "store-bought is a bit easier." And we're all about easy when the taste comes out great just the same.

Gather your ingredients for this Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat recipe

As noted, this Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat recipe is a pretty unique take on pizza, and thus, aside from the pizza dough itself, you really won't see any classic pizza ingredients here. Instead, you'll find substitutions for the types of sauce and cheese and toppings and such that you expect on a pizza. 

What you'll need for this recipe is a store-bought pizza crust (the kind that comes refrigerated), ketchup, yellow mustard, pickle juice, ground beef, thin slices of white American cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded provolone cheese, some diced yellow onion and a diced roma tomato.

Pre-heat the oven and cook the beef in a pan for this Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat recipe

Start off this Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat recipe by pre-heating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit — you want the oven good and hot when you begin baking the pizza. Next, roll out the pizza dough and form it into a circle shape on a round pizza pan or a baking sheet large enough to accommodate the crust without folding the edges.

Now, put a nonstick skillet or lightly greased pan on the stove on medium heat and brown the beef. Break up any larger pieces, and make sure you let the beef cook until it is browned throughout and no pink remains. Now, set the cooked beef aside.

Layer on the ingredients for this Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat recipe

Combine the ketchup, mustard, and pickle juice in a small bowl, and whisk them until they are fully combined. Then, spread this sauce onto the pizza crust. You can spoon it on and then use the back of the spoon or a silicone brush to spread it.

Next, top the pizza with ground beef, American cheese, provolone cheese, cheddar cheese, tomato, and onion, spreading out all ingredients evenly over the sauce-covered surface. Now, pop the pizza into the pre-heated oven and bake it for 15 minutes (a bit more if the crust is still too doughy, or a bit less if the cheese is bubbling and browning).

Serve and enjoy this Domino's Cheeseburger Pizza copycat recipe, and if you have any left over, Carli says: "This keeps well in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days. [And] it reheats well in the microwave, but my favorite way to reheat cold pizza is in a warm skillet."
