Two great foods that go great together! This recipe combines store bought par-baked pizza crusts with all the flavors of a Cheeseburger. Of course we cook ours on the grill so you get that slightly smoked flavor and awesome grill marks. This recipe was made for the staff here at GrillGrate’s office one day for lunch and everyone loved it!

Brown ground beef. Drain off any fat.


Add the ketchup, mustard, pickles, and cheddar cheese to the cooked ground beef.


Spread mixture on pizza crusts.


Top with colby jack cheese.

Grilling Directions:

Grill at medium to medium high heat- 400F at grill surface. Too hot and the crust will blacken too much


Grill 8-10 minutes max- LID DOWN


After 3 minutes use the GrateTool to peek at the sear marks on the bottom of the pie and quarter turn the pizza. If sear marks are dark black- your grill is hot


Check again in 3 minutes quarter turn and see how well the cheese is melting


Use the GrateTool to transfer the pizza to a cutting board.


 1 lb ground beef
 3/4 cup ketchup
 1/2 cup mustard
 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
 1 cup colby jack cheese
 1 2-pack store bought par-baked pizza crusts (any variety will work fine)
 1/4 cup chopped red onion
 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes

    Looks like some tasty chopped red/purple onions on that pizza in the pic. But they’re not listed in the ingredients or recipe. I suggest you add them, they are key! 🙂

    • Luke Merrill

      And the tomatoes too!

  2. Chef Michael

    Thanks for the heads up Luke. We have updated the recipe to include the tomatoes and red onion.

  3. Chris

    Is there a way to use fresh pizza dough on the Grill Grate? I know that using a pizza stone is a no-no.

    • Chef Michael

      Fresh dough can be done on the rails of the GrillGrates but it can be a little tricky. Try flipping the GrillGrates over and cook the pizza on the flat back side.

      • Ed

        I use a pizza peel on the grates until the dough sets up then transfer the pizza directly to the grill grates per recipe .
