Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger Buns

You’ll Need:

4 tubes refrigerated pizza dough
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion
1 lb. bacon OR 1 jar real bacon bits
1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
BBQ sauce, to taste
2 tbsp. butter, melted


How To:

Cut onion into small pieces. In a skillet, brown and crumble beef with onion over medium heat until beef is no longer pink. Drain.  Add bacon and cheese. Add BBQ sauce to taste. Mix well. remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Separate dough into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a 6-inch circle. Top each circle with about 1/8th of the filling. Fold dough over to meet in the center and pinch edges to seal.

Place seam-side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, turning over halfway to avoid a mushy bottom.  Brush with butter. Serve warm.
