Reporters at Foodbeast decided to throw all caution (and reason) to the wind by making a pizza out of Big Macs

Many all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles on a sesame seed pizza crust.

Two food reporters go where no man (or mouth) has ever gone before: a Big Mac Pizza. Foodbeast writers got the brilliant idea to create a pizza topped and stuffed with all the Big Mac patties and trimmings, inventing a food mashup the world did not know it really needed.

First they took pizza dough and slathered it with a generous portion of McDonald’s special sauce. The pizza is topped off with more crust, as well as a sprinkling of fries, special sauce, and crumbled-up patties. The crust (of course) is layered with sesame seeds (because a Big Mac Pizza would not be compete without them). The creation is then baked for 20 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, then finished off with some shredded lettuce and even more special sauce.

If you’re ready for the impressively inventive and positively nauseating feat, check out the “making of” video below:


Sunday Suppers, Monday Edition: Pizza, Baby!

This isn&rsquot my picture, but it&rsquos definitely my kind of pizza.

One of the first things The Beloved and I do when we move to a new place is to find the best local pizza place we can and Buy From Them. We&rsquod rather support a local, stand alone than a Crazy Big Chain operation. The place we have found in NC is a little place called Papa&rsquos Pizza and Subs. They don&rsquot have a website, so you&rsquoll just have to trust me. It is G-U-D good.

We order from Papa about twice a month, and we have been Very Pleased&ndasheven their delivery guys are really good. Yay.

There was a time though&ndasha Sad and Dark time&ndashwhen we didn&rsquot have a good local pizza place near us. The only thing to do was make our own. Even now, with Papa&rsquos down the road, we might have a hankering for pizza brushed with truffle oil sometime, and then we&rsquoll just make some.

Here&rsquos the recipe we used at one of the restaurants I worked at, scaled down so you don&rsquot have to make a billion pizzas.* You&rsquore welcome.

Easy Pizza Crust

  • 4 oz high gluten or bread flour
  • 4 oz AP flour
  • 4 oz water
  • 1/3 oz fresh yeast or 3 g. dry yeast
  • 1/2 oz. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 oz salt (7 g)

Just put everything in the mixer with the dough hook and mix/knead on medium-low speed for 8 minutes and medium speed for 4 minutes. Divide dough in half, round and cover. Let rise until doubled, then roll out/stretch, top and bake. If you want a chewier crust, top the pizza, cover and let rise again for about 30 minutes before baking.

Pizza Sauce
Yes, I guess you can buy pizza sauce, but it&rsquos really easy to make. I usually use San Marzano tomatoes or Romas&ndashcanned&ndasha fair amount of olive oil, onions, garlic, tomato paste, pepper flake, salt, pepper, lots of oregano, thyme and basil. Here&rsquos how:

  1. Sweat onions and garlic in olive oil until softened and translucent.
  2. Add tomato paste, salt, pepper, pepper flake and dried herbs and continue to cook over medium heat for another minute or two.
  3. Add the undrained tomatoes and mash in the pan.
  4. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. You&rsquore only going to be using a small amount of sauce on a pizza, so it should be very flavorful. Add a pinch of sugar or a splash of balsamic if the flavor seems dull.
  5. Puree with an immersion blender, blender or food processor until it&rsquos as smooth as you want it. For a nice, even texture, run it through a food mill with the medium disc in place.

Other Things to Spread on Pizza Dough Besides Tomato Sauce

  • Pesto
  • Barbecue Sauce
  • Sweet and sour sauce
  • Steak sauce
  • olive oil
  • Alfredo sauce
  • aioli
  • Plum sauce
  • Chimichuri sauce
  • Chutney
  • Etc.

Tasty Items to Put on Pizza
If you like it, you can probably put it on a pizza. I usually decide on my &ldquospread&rdquo first and then choose toppings that will complement it. Of course, you can choose your toppings first and then choose your spread. Whatever works for you.

Pizza Rules

  1. Less is more&ndashdon&rsquot overload the dough&ndashyou want to taste the bread once it&rsquos baked.
  2. Bake the pizza on a pizza stone or quarry tile close to the bottom of the oven.
  3. Bake at the highest temperature your oven will go. Mine goes to 525F.
  4. If you have a pizza peel, lightly sprinkle it with cornmeal before building the pizza on it. Shake it often to make sure it&rsquos not sticking. When you&rsquore ready to bake, transfer the pizza from the peel to the baking stone by placing the end of the peel at the far end of the stone and shaking/jerking the peel back towards you.

Here&rsquos the recipe we used at one of the restaurants I worked at, scaled down so you don&rsquot have to make a billion pizzas.* You&rsquore welcome.

Easy Pizza Crust

  • 4 oz high gluten or bread flour
  • 4 oz AP flour
  • 4 oz water
  • 1/3 oz fresh yeast or 3 g. dry yeast
  • 1/2 oz. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 oz salt (7 g)

Just put everything in the mixer with the dough hook and mix/knead on medium-low speed for 8 minutes and medium speed for 4 minutes. Divide dough in half, round and cover. Let rise until doubled, then roll out/stretch, top and bake. If you want a chewier crust, top the pizza, cover and let rise again for about 30 minutes before baking.

Pizza Sauce
Yes, I guess you can buy pizza sauce, but it&rsquos really easy to make. I usually use San Marzano tomatoes or Romas&ndashcanned&ndasha fair amount of olive oil, onions, garlic, tomato paste, pepper flake, salt, pepper, lots of oregano, thyme and basil. Here&rsquos how:

  1. Sweat onions and garlic in olive oil until softened and translucent.
  2. Add tomato paste, salt, pepper, pepper flake and dried herbs and continue to cook over medium heat for another minute or two.
  3. Add the undrained tomatoes and mash in the pan.
  4. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. You&rsquore only going to be using a small amount of sauce on a pizza, so it should be very flavorful. Add a pinch of sugar or a splash of balsamic if the flavor seems dull.
  5. Puree with an immersion blender, blender or food processor until it&rsquos as smooth as you want it. For a nice, even texture, run it through a food mill with the medium disc in place.

Other Things to Spread on Pizza Dough Besides Tomato Sauce

  • Pesto
  • Barbecue Sauce
  • Sweet and sour sauce
  • Steak sauce
  • olive oil
  • Alfredo sauce
  • aioli
  • Plum sauce
  • Chimichuri sauce
  • Chutney
  • Etc.

Tasty Items to Put on Pizza
If you like it, you can probably put it on a pizza. I usually decide on my &ldquospread&rdquo first and then choose toppings that will complement it. Of course, you can choose your toppings first and then choose your spread. Whatever works for you.

Pizza Rules

  1. Less is more&ndashdon&rsquot overload the dough&ndashyou want to taste the bread once it&rsquos baked.
  2. Bake the pizza on a pizza stone or quarry tile close to the bottom of the oven.
  3. Bake at the highest temperature your oven will go. Mine goes to 525F.
  4. If you have a pizza peel, lightly sprinkle it with cornmeal before building the pizza on it. Shake it often to make sure it&rsquos not sticking. When you&rsquore ready to bake, transfer the pizza from the peel to the baking stone by placing the end of the peel at the far end of the stone and shaking/jerking the peel back towards you.

Sunday Suppers, Monday Edition: Pizza, Baby!

This isn&rsquot my picture, but it&rsquos definitely my kind of pizza.

One of the first things The Beloved and I do when we move to a new place is to find the best local pizza place we can and Buy From Them. We&rsquod rather support a local, stand alone than a Crazy Big Chain operation. The place we have found in NC is a little place called Papa&rsquos Pizza and Subs. They don&rsquot have a website, so you&rsquoll just have to trust me. It is G-U-D good.

We order from Papa about twice a month, and we have been Very Pleased&ndasheven their delivery guys are really good. Yay.

There was a time though&ndasha Sad and Dark time&ndashwhen we didn&rsquot have a good local pizza place near us. The only thing to do was make our own. Even now, with Papa&rsquos down the road, we might have a hankering for pizza brushed with truffle oil sometime, and then we&rsquoll just make some.
