Cheeseburger Pizza Sandwiches | www.tasteandtellblog.com
It’s amazing how much life changes with each child.  I remember life before kids.  Life was pretty carefree.  I cooked a lot, even though there were just the two of us.  Then Abbi was born.  I’m not going to lie – she was a hard baby.  I don’t remember how much I cooked after she was born, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t that much – simply because she always wanted to be held, and it’s pretty hard to get anything done when you always have a baby in your arms.  Easton was an easy baby – completely opposite of Abbi.  I remember that I was back in the kitchen pretty quickly after he was born.  I could put him in the swing or the bouncy seat, and he was good.  Such an easy going baby!!

Now that #3 has been added to the mix, it’s a whole new ballgame.  Luckily, Camden is another easy going baby.  He’s a good eater, and a good sleeper.  But the difference now is that not only do I have a baby to attend to, but 2 other young children, so life has definitely changed.  If I’m not holding a baby, I’m playing cars or drawing pictures or fixing lunches.  There is not a minute of extra time to be found.  I’m not complaining in the slightest – I feel extremely blessed – but I can tell that busy is going to be the name of the game for the next, well, probably 18 years!!

I was a huge advocate of easy weeknight meals before, but I am even more so now.  In fact, easy and fast is the only way that dinner is making it to the table at all these days.  This recipe is exactly that.  Easy and fast.  It’s not fancy by any means.  But there are only a few ingredients, starting with a Pillsbury pizza crust. And I’m going to bet that these sandwiches will be a favorite for kids everywhere.  And actually, my husband really loved these and couldn’t wait to eat the leftovers the next day.  That’s usually how I know that I have a successful recipe on my hands!!

What is your secret for getting dinner on the table when life is crazy?

Cheeseburger Pizza Sandwiches
Prep time

Can’t decide between pizza, cheeseburgers or sandwiches? How about combining them all into one!
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 4 oz processed American cheese, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced pickles
  • 1 (13.8 oz) Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust
  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a medium skillet, brown the ground beef. Once the beef is cooked through, add in the cheese, ketchup, mustard and pickles. Cook until the cheese is completely melted and mixed throughout the mixture.
  3. Meanwhile, roll the pizza out to a 16x8-inch rectangle on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and spread the ground beef mixture over the bottom half of the pizza dough on the long edge. Very carefully, using a spatula if needed, fold the dough over the top of the beef filling. Return to the oven and cook for an additional 6-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. Cut into 6 equal pieces and serve.

  1. Definitely a great recipe for a family! Looks yummy 🙂 I am sure you are doing an amazing job with the three kids. Super mom!!!!!

  2. How do you do it? No really, how?

    I love this.

  3. Stephanie says:

    I bet these will be a hit when I make them too! Thanks!

  4. kari says:

    You’re amazing, just remember that!!
    Oh and when I was in your shoes, I utilized quick simple dishes, my slow cooker and I tried to plan ahead. It’s do-able, and yes you do survive. Plus-it’s only about 15 years, because once they’re 15 they grab and go or they’re just to busy with sports or other activities. Then it’s back to cooking for 2 and you wonder how to cut back on all those recipes you’ve been using-haha!

  5. This looks so great and so easy! Thanks for linking to my cheeseburger flatbread melts! Also, your cheeseburger soup looks amazing…

  6. This looks like a perfect quick and easy meal!

  7. carrian says:

    yup, that’s always the right answer, BOTH! My brother would love this. Oh my gosh, I swear he is the king of burgers and pizza.

  8. Joanne says:

    Luckily they’re not that far apart in age…my mom THOUGHT she was done and then had my little sister! I love that this combines two of my favorite things…a pizza sandwich. Whod’ve thunk it!

  9. I would make this sandwich, even if I had 3 hours to make dinner. They look so yummy, it’s a bonus that they’re so quick to whip up.

  10. I can’t imagine trying to get done what you do with 3 kids! I feel like it’s crazy enough with the one I have!

  11. Kim says:

    When I was first pregnant with my second (who is now 6) everyone told me it was easier to have two children instead of one. I seriously don’t know what those people were thinking. The more you have the crazier it is!! I only have two and they are fairly self sufficient now so I can’t even imagine how hard it would be to have 3 little ones. I’m impressed that you have recipes to post:)

    That cheeseburger filling looks oh so creamy! Love it!

  12. Emily says:

    My kids would LOVE these!

  13. A great twist on a favorite and I can’t wait to try it. Even if I have lots of time. You sound like you are handling things just fabulously! Remember to take a break for yourself when you can.

  14. Norma says:

    We today just took on the new roll of stay at home educating. So this sounds perfect for the amount of time I will have in the beginning with meals. And it is always a HUGE PLUS IF HUBBY likes it more then just the first time and the little girlfriends enjoy it too 🙂 My two older men (sons) would love it no matter we call it. =0)

  15. You’re so amazing to be doing this with 3 kids! You’re a supermom! And this pizza – YES! I’m all for quick and easy!

  16. Heather says:

    We will have to try these. I totally get the being busy. I don’t know how you cook and take pictures to blog it. I am really lucky to get dinner on the table most nights and I don’t work until the kids go bed. So you are amazing.

  17. This looks amazing. Can’t wait to try it. Thank you!

  18. Jeff says:

    This is perfect for the kiddos and for us big kids! I had to post about it but totally linked back to you because that’s how I roll! 🙂 Thanks so much for the recipe! Cheers!
