  • 1 pound 95% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup dill pickle slices, diced
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 2 packages (11 ounces each) refrigerated French bread dough, divided
  • 6 slices (3/4 ounce each) American pasteurized process cheese food
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Optional toppings such as shredded lettuce, tomato slices, dill pickle slices, additional ketchup and mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place ground beef in (12-in.) Skillet. Cook over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking beef into crumbles; drain. Chop onion using Food Chopper. Dice pickles using Utility Knife. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine onion, pickles, ketchup, mustard and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; mix well. Add cooked ground beef; mix well.

  2. Unroll one package of the bread dough onto Large Round Stone with Handles; roll and stretch to edge of baking stone using Baker's Roller®. Cut cheese slices in half and arrange evenly over dough to within 1 inch of edge. Spoon meat mixture over cheese; spread evenly.

  3. Unroll remaining package of dough directly over filling, matching edges of dough and shaping to fit as dough is unrolled. Trim excess dough from corners using Pizza Cutter, forming even edges. Roll and crimp edges to seal. Drizzle oil over dough; spread evenly. If desired, grate Parmesan cheese over dough using Rotary Grater. Using Pizza Cutter, make three crisscross cuts, about 6 inches long, across center of top crust to vent. Bake 18-20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove from oven; cut into wedges. Serve with toppings, if desired.
