Cheeseburger Bread


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 1 pound ground sirloin

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoons chili powder

  • Salt and ground black pepper

  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard

  • 1/4 cup ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 cup beef stock

  • 1 tube frozen pizza dough, defrosted

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or cornmeal

  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


Pre-heat oven to 375°F.

Place large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of EVOO, about 2 tablespoons. Add the meat to the pan and cook until golden brown, 5-6 minutes.

Add the onion and chili powder to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the onion is tender, 4-5 minutes.

Add the mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and beef stock to the pot, bring up to a bubble and simmer until thickened, 4-5 minutes. Let cool.

Dust your hands and lightly coat the pizza dough with flour or cornmeal before rolling it out onto a work surface. Roll out the dough slightly so it's approximately 11x16".

Top the dough with the cooled meat mixture and top that with the cheese. Leave a one-inch border on each side. Fold all the borders in and over onto an inch of the meat mixture. Roll the dough up into a log shape forming a spiral in the middle.

Brush the roll with egg wash and sprinkle it with sesame seeds. Transfer the roll to a baking sheet and bake until dough is evenly golden brown, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly.

To serve, slice up the cheeseburger bread and serve with a side of ketchup for dipping.
