Spicy Cheeseburger Pizza

For the next 5 months – Okay, well really it’s this month and the next 4 – I’m going to be sharing one recipe per month featuring these rockstar, southern pantry staples.

VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel®

For this first family recipe, I was given the opportunity to try the Spicy Cheeseburger Pizza.

I’ll be honest with y’all, (after all, we have nothing if we don’t have honesty)I’m not a big cheeseburger person and I’m not typically a fan of “fancy pizzas” so this recipe sounded a bit strange to me, but I’m game for a challenge so I went to the store and bought a pizza crust and shredded lettuce (the only two things not already in my house)

Here’s the deal, VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel® in the form of their Famous Queso have been a part of my life since before I could actually see over the counter without the assistance of a step stool. I can remember making that famous queso when we moved to Nevada and I swear that we changed lives with it.


Anyways — on to the recipe.

I was given the Spicy Cheeseburger Pizza recipe to try.

This incorporates VELVEETA®, Ro*Tel®, ketchup (I know. Seriously, stick with me), shredded lettuce, hamburger and pizza crust. Easy Peasy, no?

So, I gathered my ingredients (except we substituted ground Turkey for Ground Hamburger) and got started.

I browned my ground turkey and then cubed my VELVEETA®

I popped this into my 400 F oven and baked it for 10 minutes.
After I took it out of the oven, I topped it with shredded lettuce, cut it into slices and served it.
