It has been a heck of a week, so we'll be eating egg sandwiches, sipping hot chocolate, and taking some time for ourselves.  We're also looking forward to:

Homework from puppy school:  “Sitting Politely For Petting” and “Accepting a Friendly Stranger”  We've solicited help from all of the neighbors, who will just happen to be outside as we walk by.  It takes a village, does it not?

After stepping up my exercise game for the Live Healthy Iowa 10 Week Challenge, I'm feeling it(!)  Oh my.  So this overachiever will be taking herself to hot yoga and getting a massage    #lessonslearned #paceyourself

On the stove-top?  Laksa Noodle Soup, Strip Steak with Rosemary Red Wine, and Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

Whatever you're up to, I hope you have a good one(!)

Hamburger + Dill Pickle Pizza - The tastes of two favorite foods (pizza and burgers) are combined into a fun and easy pizza that everyone will love

Some food marriages were just meant to be like tomato soup and grilled cheese, or pancakes and hot maple syrup.  Cheeseburger pizza definitely has a place on the list.

For the weekend, this fun and easy pizza, one that combines two favorite foods: pizza and cheeseburgers.  Ground beef, dill pickles, and onions, along with a special sauce give it tons of flavor.

    This is a fun idea. There are some changes I would have to make. Perhaps a 1/2 and 1/2 pizza some members don’t want mustard or pickles. But this is still easy to make for everyone.

    Looks like you’ve been quite busy with life and it would be nice to reward yourself with food this good! I agree there are plenty of good food marriages out there! I’ve never tried pizza and burgers though. This would be nice to serve to my family!

  • Reply Laalaa June 28, 2017 at 2:22 am

    Hot yoga I would love to try. I’ve been seeing hip hop yoga floating about which would be me to a T. Being a veggie too, this pizza is different but insanely mouth watering.

  • Reply Sierra June 28, 2017 at 2:45 am

    I like how you said that some food marriages are just meant to be because it is so true! My favorite being chocolate and peanut butter! I like pizza and I like cheeseburgers but never have I ever thought of putting the two together!

    I’ve been looking for ways to give my three boys the tastes they love, but with whole foods instead of take-out. I’m so excited to give this one a try, and am positive I shouldn’t make just one!

  • Reply Shawna June 28, 2017 at 9:18 pm

    I may really need to try this. We love pizza around here! I have never imagined putting hamburger and dill on a pizza, however…why not?! I love all 3 things, so why not combine them. And it looks delish!

    This past weekend was not a good one for me because I have been ill. Hopefully this weekend my family will have a BBQ at my sister house and do fireworks when the sun goes down for the children. This hamburger dill pickle pizza is something I would not like but I know my sons would. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and the recipe.

    This recipe sounds like it would be fabulous to eat! The kids would love it. I hear you about the non stop egg sandwiches. It has been a really busy week here and I have been lucky to get a good meal in. I hope that things calm down a bit next week but today is the kids last day of school so it seems to me that it’s about to get even busier.

    I had a pizza like this a long time ago at a pizzeria and I loved it! This is going to take our Friday Night – Pizza Night to a whole new level. Your photos are beautiful as always.

    I am always looking for new podcast options. Thank you for your recommendations. This pizza looks amazing. My husband is not a fan of pickles but I think with the addition of the hamburger he would actually like this one. What a creative take on a hamburger and pizza!!

  • Reply Claire June 29, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    Hamburgers on pizza? What an interesting thought. Looks so delicious. I really like pizza that are healthy, homemade and more. The part where I focus on the most would probably be the crust, I only like thin crust pizzas. Anyways, this pizza sounds great, I would just take out the pickle though!

    Hamburger pizza as well as hamburger pizza pockets have my heart. They can be so addicting. They are definitely one food marriage I can go for.

    I am one of those people who absolutely LOVES pickles but I am not so sure I can get behind the idea of pickles on a pizza. I guess I’ll try any kind of pizza once!

    I love the idea of a happiness jar. Especially for these summer months when the kids are home. From now on, every time they tell me “I’m bored” I’ll ask them to put a note in the jar with something they’re thankful for! I’m sure one of those will say “Cheeseburger pizza” Thanks for yet another great recipe. x
