Cheeseburger Pizza

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!

Cheeseburger Pizza

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.

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
