Makes 1 12” pizza
Mix all of the ingredients together and season to taste. Set aside
For the seasoned meat:
Heat vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add ground beef and sauté until browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Take beef off heat and set aside.
For the pizza assembly:
When ready to assemble, spread a bit of mozzarella onto the stretched out pizza dough. Add cooked ground beef. Sprinkle diced onion and pickle relish around ground beef. Place the strips of American cheese on top.
Bake in your Cru oven. For a traditional Neapolitan crust bake at 800°-900°F for about 90 seconds turning frequently to prevent burning. For a firmer crust bake around 650°F for abut 4 minutes rotating as needed to ensure even baking. Whatever your temperature always watch your pizza closely.
If your crust is cooked but you want your toppings to brown more, slide the peel underneath your pizza and lift the entire pizza closer to the oven ceiling. As the intense heat rises in the oven, it gathers in the oven's roof. This method takes advantage of that radiant heat, which further caramelizes your cheese and toppings.
Once done, sprinkle shredded lettuce on top, then drizzle special sauce on top of the lettuce. Finish with sesame seeds.
