Cheeseburger Pizza

Cheeseburger Pizza (Adapted from Canadian Living)

8 ounces ground sirloin
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 or 16 ounces prepared whole-wheat pizza dough (I used our favorite recipe)
1/4 cup marinara sauce
3 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
3 ounces shredded white Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 500 degrees with a pizza stone placed on the lowest rack.

In a medium skillet, add beef, onion, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper - cook over medium-high heat, stirring often to crumble the meat, until beef is no longer pink, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain off fat, if necessary, and set aside.

Stretch and roll out pizza dough to a rough 12" circle on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle enough cornmeal to lightly cover a pizza peel and transfer the dough on top.

Spread sauce over dough - scatter the top evenly with the cooked beef mixture. Sprinkle the cheeses evenly over the top. Slide the pizza onto the stone and bake until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden, about 10 minutes. Remove and transfer pizza to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.

Makes about 4 servings.
