What is cheeseburger pizza? It’s pizza with all the fixings of a cheeseburger, without the bun! This style of pizza is fun for the whole family, especially the kids! If you’re grain free, it’s also an inventive way to enjoy a classic.

Instead of using a traditional pizza crust, here, we’re using a cauliflower crust. Specifically, we’re using a cauliflower crust from the brand Cali’flour Foods, which I’ve loved for a while and now, they’ve come out with a cookbook, called Cali’Flour Kitchen! To be totally honest, I’m always skeptical when brands come out with cookbooks. They seem to fall short, and I rarely share them with you all. But in this case, I was blown away! From cauliflower croutons to cauliflower nachos, this cookbook pleasantly surprised me!

The pizza base is a combo of mustard and ketchup, so every bite has a cheeseburger flare, which I love. You could spiralize your pickles as well, but I couldn’t find whole pickles, only pickle spears, so I just sliced them up – it adds the perfect saltiness to this pizza.

If you want my homemade cauliflower crust recipe, you can check it out in my Inspiralize Everything or Inspiralized and Beyond cookbooks – or, here’s another version.

If you want an alternative to ground beef, try ground turkey! It’ll be like a turkey cheeseburger pizza! Or, if you’re totally meat-free (ie vegetarian), you could use crumbled walnut taco meat instead OR tofu crumbles or just omit the meat entirely! You can still enjoy the cheeseburger-y flavors without the meat, oddly.

Cheeseburger Pizza

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time25 mins


  • 1 Cali’flour Pizza Crust or any variety of pizza crust you'd like to use
  • 4 ounces ground beef
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 small dill pickle sliced
  • 2 tablespoons slivered red onion I spiralized the red onion on Blade A and then chopped up the noodles - makes for perfectly even slivers!
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise I use Sir Kensington's vegan mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup shredded romaine lettuce


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or get out your pizza pan and put your crust on it. Once the oven is preheated, bake the crust for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Cook the beef in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to break it up, for about 7 minutes, until no longer pink. Drain any excess fat, stir in the salt, and let cool slightly.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the ketchup and mustard.
  • Spread the ketchup mixture over the crust. Arrange the beef on top and scatter the cheese over the beef. Place in the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven to a cutting board and top with the pickle and red onion. Drizzle the mayonnaise on top and finish with the lettuce. Slice and serve.


Prebake the crust for a couple of extra minutes to crisp it up sufficiently to hold the juicy toppings.

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
