How to Make Homemade Ground Beef Pizza

Friday nights are usually pizza night. Even though we have a great variety of pizza places near us, I like to toss things up a bit and make homemade pizzas at home. There are so many different ways you can make your own pizza!

I had ground beef out and no clue what to make. I decided to try to make a spin off of my steak, pepper and cheese sandwiches which I need to post about. This pizza was absolutely amazing. My kids won’t touch it due to the peppers and onions, so they got a boring pepperoni pizza.

I made a pizza crust from scratch but you are welcome to purchase store bought or any crust to your liking. I’m not a big fan of making my own crust as I have no patience of rolling out and getting flour everywhere so will probably purchase from a local place here that is amazing.

Another fun way to use pizza crust is by making Breakfast pizza! Seriously, if you haven’t made it yet, you have to try it! Make sure to check out our Ricotta Breakfast Pizza! I’m sure your family will love it!

Of course you will need an appetizer to go with your pizza! Our Garlic Flatbread is the perfect accompaniment!

Expert Tips, Ingredient List and Suggestions for Recipe Success

  • Pizza crust-homemade or store bought
  •  lean ground beef – I normally use 80/20 when making recipes that call for ground beef.
  • green pepper – fresh or frozen will work
  • sweet or red onion – you can even use yellow or white. This is totally up to you.
  • shredded pizza cheese or mozzarella

Step by Step Directions

Step 1: Preheat oven to 450°F.

Step 2: Prepare pizza dough or store bought dough. I used this basic pizza dough recipe and brushed with olive oil and baked for about 10 minutes before adding my toppings. 

Step 3: In a non stick skillet, brown ground beef; drain fat if there is any.  Return beef to the skillet and add steak seasoning, and garlic powder.  Mix well, about 2 minutes. 

Step 4: Add peppers and onions, sauté 3 minutes and remove pan from heat.  

Step 5: Top crust with white garlic sauce (directions below), red pepper flakes, meat and vegetable mixture, and cheese. (in this order)

Step 6: Bake about 15-20 minutes, until crust is to your liking. 

Step 7: Slice pizza into 8 pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper(if that is your thing)

White Garlic Sauce Directions

Step 1: Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat with garlic.

Step 2: Stir in flour and stir about 1 minute.

Step 3: Slowly whisk in milk stirring constantly. Mixture will thicken. Simmer about 5 minutes.

Step 4: Add garlic powder, and shredded parmesan cheese.

Step 5: Stir until cheese is melted. Make enough for one large pizza.
