This Big Mac Pizza recipe takes all the flavors we love in a Big Mac and serves them up pizza style! This easy recipe is full of beef, cheese, pickles, lettuce, and of course, that secret sauce.
When I think of my favorite fast food treats, I think of two things: Big Macs and pizza. Recently, I wanted to make my signature copycat Big Mac, but I didn’t have any buns. Rather than go to the store, I decided to use what I had on hand and make this tasty variation instead.

This recipe is as easy to make as it is to shop for. It only takes a few simple steps to make it!
Step 1: Prep
Dice the pickles and onions and shred the lettuce.
Step 2: Cook the Beef
In a medium skillet, combine the ground beef, salt, and pepper and cook over medium heat.
Step 3: Make the Sauce
While the meat is cooking, make the sauce by combining the mayonnaise, pickles, mustard, ketchup, and paprika.
Step 4: Combine
When the meat is fully cooked, add the sauce to the pan and stir until evenly coated, then add the diced onions and stir again.
Step 5: Make the Pizza
Place the pizza crust on a pizza pan and spread the meat mixture over it evenly. Then, sprinkle it all with the cheese.
Step 6: Bake and Serve
Bake the pizza until the cheese is melted and golden, then top it with the remaining pickles and the shredded lettuce.
Hint: If your ground beef makes a lot of grease, drain it off before adding the sauce.

This pizza will keep well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for three to four days. For longer storage, you can freeze it for up to two months.
Even a recipe as simple as this one has a few little things to know that can make it even better. I’ve got the inside track for taking this pizza from good to great!
- If your ground beef releases a lot of fat, drain it before adding the sauce so you don’t have a greasy mess on your hands.
- If you have a pizza board, you can place your pizza crust on that and let the pizza pan preheat along with the oven. When you’re ready, simply slide the pizza onto the preheated pizza pan.
