Cheeseburger Pizza with Velveeta

I ran across this recipe in a magazine last week and decided to try it.It's been years since I have purchased Velveeta and now I know why. Velveeta is like crack. First you cut off only one little piece and quickly fold the foil wrapper and place back into the box. Two minutes later your back to cutting off a slightly larger piece and before you know it, you are just leaving the box open and have since dispensed with the foil because it just slows down the process of getting to that glorious smooth processed cheese known as (cue the trumpets) Velveeta.

On to the recipe before my arteries narrow to the point where I cannot get enough blood to operate a keyboard.Spicy Cheeseburger Pizza

I made several changes to accommodate our taste and will note the changes and or additions.


1/2 lb ground beef, cooked and drained (can be done ahead of time)
1/2 lb (8 ozs) of Velveeta cut into cubes
1 pizza crust 12 inches
1 can RO*TEL diced tomatoes & green chilies (I diced 2 fresh Roma tomatoes)
1/4 cup of Hunt's ketchup
1 cup shredded lettuce

I also added grated sharp cheddar cheese (1/2 cup) and some fresh diced sweet white onion.

Heat oven to 400 degrees

Re warm cooked meat in medium skillet and stir in Velveeta cubes, stirring until melted.

Mix RO*TEL and Hunt's ketchup and spread into crust. Top with meat mixture. I smeared the crust with ketchup and then covered with meat mixture and topped with fresh tomatoes, onions, and the additional cheddar.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and top with fresh lettuce.

I love Velveeta! You would think that my husband, being from France and all would be appalled at the thought of "cheese food", but he loves it too.

Maybe I'll try this. Haven't really cooked in a long time.
