Hamburger Pizza

Healthy cooking with kids

Nutritionist Jill Castle shows teens how to make a homemade pizza that is healthier, faster, tastier, and less expensive than ordering a pizza for delivery.

Servings: 4-6

What You Need:

1 pre-made whole grain pizza crusts (from the deli)

1-2 teaspoons olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 green pepper, small dice

1 pound lean hamburger meat (90% lean or more)

1 can fire-roasted diced tomato, drained

1 small can of tomato paste

1 teaspoon each of basil and oregano

salt and pepper

1 package of pre-sliced mozzarella cheese (or shredded)


Pre-heat the oven to 450 F. Knead and stretch the dough into a pizza dough shape. (Watch video for instructions). Spray the cookie sheet with cooking spray and lay the dough on top, making sure to make a rim around the edges. In a large skillet, saute the onions and green pepper in oil until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the hamburger meat and cook until browned through. Add the drained tomatoes, turn off the heat and mix. Spread the tomato paste over the dough and sprinkle the herbs, salt and pepper on top. Add the meat mixture and top; lay the sliced mozzarella on top of hamburger. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until crust is browned along the edges.
