the Pizza Burger Pie! I’m a big fan of both pizza and burgers, so I thought, why not combine the two into one delicious dish? And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
I started off by preheating my oven to 375°F and getting all my ingredients ready. I used a mixture of all-purpose flour, yeast, sugar, sour cream, water, shortening, and an egg to make the crust. For the filling, I used ground beef, salt, pepper, minced onion, Italian seasoning, tomato paste, and some canned sliced mushrooms.
The first step was to prepare the filling and set it aside. I mixed together the ground beef, salt, pepper, onion, Italian seasoning, tomato paste, and mushrooms in a bowl. I then started on the crust by combining the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Next, I heated the sour cream, water, and shortening in a saucepan over medium heat until it reached 120-130°F. I added the mixture to the flour mixture and then added the egg. I mixed everything together until it was somewhat smooth and then spread it in a greased 9 or 10-inch pie pan to create the crust.
I then spooned the filling into the crust and sprinkled cheese on top. I put the Pizza Burger Pie in the oven and let it bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until it was light golden brown. The aroma wafting from the oven was heavenly, and I couldn’t wait to try my creation.
Finally, the moment of truth arrived. I took the Pizza Burger Pie out of the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. I then sliced into it, and the cheese was melted and gooey, and the crust was crispy and delicious. The filling was juicy and flavorful, and the combination of the crust and filling was simply amazing. I couldn’t stop eating it!
In conclusion, the Pizza Burger Pie was a huge success, and I’m so glad I tried making it. It’s a fun and creative twist on two classic dishes, and it’s a great option for a tasty meal that everyone will love. I hope you all give it a try and enjoy it as much as I did. Don’t forget to let me know in the comments what you think. Until next time, bye!
The pizza burger pie recipe
- 1 lb lean ground beef at least 80% lean for best flavor
- 1 large onion finely chopped
- A pinch of salt approx. 1/2 teaspoon, but adjust to taste
- 1 cup of rich shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup Original Bisquick™️ mix This is the magic ingredient that brings everything together!
- 1 cup milk
- 2 fresh eggs
- Prep Time: Begin by preheating your oven to a warm 400°F. As it heats up, lightly spray a 9-inch glass pie plate with non-stick cooking spray to ensure a smooth release later.
- The Savory Filling: Over medium heat, take a 10-inch skillet and cook your ground beef and chopped onion. This should take about 8-10 minutes. The key is to stir occasionally to ensure even cooking and to make sure that the beef turns a delectable brown color. Once done, ensure to drain any excess oil. Mix in your salt for that added flavor and spread this mixture uniformly in your prepped pie plate.
- Cheese! Because Why Not: Take your shredded cheddar cheese and sprinkle it over your beef and onion mixture. This will give your pie that oozy, melty texture that we all love.
- The Grand Finale: In a separate bowl, combine the Bisquick™️ mix, fresh milk, and eggs. A simple fork or wire whisk is perfect for blending these ingredients together. Once you achieve a smooth consistency, pour this mixture over the contents of the pie plate.
- Baking to Perfection: Pop your pie into the oven and let it bake for approximately 25 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when you can insert a knife into the center and it comes out clean.
There you have it! A delightful dish that brings together the best of both worlds. The Pizza Burger Pie is not just a meal; it’s an experience. Serve it with a side salad or some steamed veggies, and you’ve got yourself a balanced meal that promises to be a hit at any dinner table.
