Hamburger and Grape-Tomato Pizza

Hamburger and grape-tomato pizza is just like eating your regular burger but in a form of a gourmet pizza. From Martha Stewart's recipes, a healthy version of a fusion of burgers and pizza. They won't be as greasy as the fast food burgers, especially if you opt for baked or grilled pizzas!


2 teaspoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
All-purpose flour, for work surface
1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed
3/4 cup store-bought marinara sauce
1 cup grated provolone cheese (4 ounces)
1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced (optional)
1/4 pound ground beef chuck
Coarse salt and ground pepper


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rub a large rimless baking sheet (or a rimmed one, upside down) with 

On a lightly floured work surface, use a rolling pin and your hands to roll and stretch dough into a 

15-by-11-inch rectangle (if dough becomes too elastic to work with, let it rest a few minutes). 

Transfer to prepared sheet.
Spread sauce evenly over dough, leaving a 1-inch border all around. Top with provolone, tomatoes, and 

if desired, onion; scatter beef over top. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake until crust is golden, beef is cooked, and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve
