We made individual pizzas, with the kids making their own (cheese and pepperoni of course) and hubby and I making these. I added the onion to the pan and browned them, and added a bit of salt. I also added some sesame seeds to the edge of my crust! I was very, very tasty...I think american cheese slices would make it closer to a big mac. We have pizza night in our house once a week, and I will definitely keep this is in the rotation!
Tastes very close to a Big Mac. I think next time I would make a few changes such as adding the dried minced onions and some salt to the ground beef when browning. Also, I think I put the thousand island dressing on too thick. I would spread it much thinner next time. You can always add more, but taking away is difficult. My daughter enjoyed this very much and it was so quick to prepare - dinner in 30 minutes!
great recipe made this for the kids once and they beg for it at least once a week. Thanks for posting!
If I could give this recipe 10 stars I would! I took this to my BUNCO group and all the girls whet crazy for it. I did do a few things different. I used crescent rolls for the crust and I did not add the bacon or mustard since "Big Macs" do not have that on them. It tasted exactly like a Big Mac! I was amazed. Plus I'm sure this version is much better for you that the real thing! Awesome recipe! Thanks!
Very good! We all liked it, and it satisfied my craving for big macs! I did make some changes: I used Simply Delicious Thousand Island Dressing in lieu of bottled dressing, used a mix of about 1 part mozzarella cheese to about 4 parts cheddar cheese, skipped the bacon, tomatoes, and mustard (since big macs don't have those ingredients), and added some finely chopped onion (since big macs do have onion). I spread the dressing over the partially baked crust, topped with the beef, then the cheese, and finally the onion, baked at 400 F for 5 minutes, then topped with dill pickle chips and shredded iceberg lettuce. In future, I will only add the pickles and lettuce to the servings, as they get warm and limp (and won't reheat well!). I think I might sprinkle on some sesame seeds next time, too. Thanks so much for posting!
This was good! I made it a little more like my favorite restaurant's Cheeseburger Pizza, and that was to include onion and pickle slices, and to put those, as well as the lettuce and tomato, on under the cheese before baking. Much less messy that way. Will have to make this for DH's DD, she loves Big Macs. Thanks!
We used a premade thin crust pizza and left out the mustard. It was so yummy! The 13 year old and the 40somethings loved it. A hit across the board.
I can't believe I forgot to rate this! FH took this to a meeting that I couldn't attend. He came back with an empty tray. Everyone loved it and it was soooo easy to make. Thanks.
Ok here is what the family thinks, it tasted fine but some how we all agreed that a big Mac comes from McDonalds and should stay out of Pizza Hut. Maybe it was the lack of mustard and I am sure it was not the lack of pickles we pull them off anyway. i guess it is personal taste.
If you have a Big Mac lover in your life, this is the pizza to 'wow' them with... very good!
