Triple Cheese, Individual Cheeseburger Pizzas

Pin It

I had leftover grilled hamburgers, leftover sliced onions and leftover sliced tomatoes.  "Hmmmmm", I thought to myself.  If I make warmed up hamburgers they won't taste right! Have you ever tried to revamp a leftover hamburger the next day?  Right?  They taste awful.  I don't care if you place them in the oven, over the stove top or back on the grill...
They just don't taste right, they taste weird.  Well that is my opinion and "I'm sticking to it"!

I've had success in the past in revamping the hamburgers by making a completely different meal simply by dicing them.  And then it hit me...PIZZA!!

So my friends, pizza it was and if I don't say so myself, it was out of this world. I am talking delicious sauteed onions and then paired with diced hamburger, three different cheeses, "hello McCfly", and then that amazing crispy Naan bread... I know, I know!!
The rest as you say "is history", because I know this will be in my go to repertoire from now on!!

Ready for this very simple recipe?  Here we go;

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 individual pizzas

4 Naan bread (2 packages)
2 tbsp butter
4 leftover hamburgers, diced
1/2 leftover onions,  sliced
1 leftover tomatoes, sliced
1 large dill pickle,  diced fine
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp black pepper
4 tbsp Pecorino Romano cheese grated - divided
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated (I used white)
1 cup Monteray Jack cheese, grated (I used with jalapeno)
1/2 cup Swiss cheese, grated

-Preheat oven to 375F.

-Dice your hamburgers, set aside.

-In a medium skillet, melt your butter and add your sliced onions. Let saute for a few minutes till they are softened and aromatic, add your diced hamburger.  Add in your diced pickle and saute for just a couple more minutes, set aside.  Pop a hamburger piece in your mouth to make sure it's seasoned properly and because you can...
If more seasoning is needed, add it now, set aside.

-Using two baking sheets, place two of your Naan breads on each sheet.  Drizzle each Naan bread piece with 1 tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tbsp of the Pecorino Romano cheese, spread evenly.  Dividing your black pepper add to each Naan piece of bread.  We don't want to take away from the "cheeseburger experience" by adding any spices...
We want the pizza to taste like a cheeseburger.

-Dividing the hamburger mixture add it evenly to your Naan pieces.

-Divide the grated cheese and sprinkle that evenly over your hamburger mixture, that's it, I know!!

-Bake in oven for 15 minutes or till all the cheese has melted and the Naan is nicely golden.

-Remove from oven and immediately add your diced tomatoes and serve.  I have to tell you, I love a side of blue cheese to dip this pizza in, no I'm not joking... "to die for"!!  My one daughter and hubby prefer ranch.  

How easy was that right?  I know!!  Using up the leftovers and making it into a completely different awesome meal that your family will love!!
