Sloppy Joe Pizza

I always like trying different things and this one is as different as you can get. The wife and I both like pizza and sloppy joes (who doesn't?) so I decided to combine the two one day. It can be a little bit of work to make but it's well worth it in the end.


  • 1 398 Milliletre (14 Oz) Can Sloppy Joe Sauce Mix

  • 1 Lb Ground Beef

  • 1 Medium onion (diced)

  • 3 Tbsp; Olive Oil


  • 1 Package of Premade Pizza Dough (available at most grocery stores)

  • 1 Medium Onion (thinly sliced)

  • 3 or 4 Mushrooms (thinly sliced)

  • 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • 1/2 Cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese

  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

In a large frying pan over med-high heat, add oil and diced onion and saute untill onion becomes translucent. Add ground beef and cook ubtill meat is completely cooked.

After meat has cooked, drain off excessive grease. At this point, I put meat into a bowl and use a potatoe masher to break down the meat so there are no big chunks. Return meat to pan.

Add Sloppy Joe mix and combine thoroughly. Simmer over a med-low heat until mixture is a nice thick paste. Set aside to cool.

On a cookie sheet, spread out pizza dough using the oil smeared on your hands to prevent sticking. After reaching desired width and length, spread Sloppy Joe mix evenly over top of pizza dough. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over mixture.

Layer mushrooms, sliced onions on pizza then sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 - 30 min. until edges of crust are golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Cool for 5 mins and serve.

While I only used mushrooms and onions, you could use any type of topping for this pizza, eg- green peppers, ham, bacon, etc. Just add whatever you like on any other pizza.
