Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Balls Recipe

Pizza balls are easy to make for dinner, quick appetizers for a party or a delicious after school snack. A pizza ball is biscuit dough wrapped around pizza toppings. We’ve enjoyed easy pepperoni rolls and easy taco bites but lately we have been eating a lot of cheeseburgers. So, I just had to put the two together, add some bacon and make Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Balls!

I made these bacon cheeseburger pizza balls with just the basic things you would find on a cheeseburger: meat, cheese and the lovely addition of bacon! Instead of adding onions, I put onion powder so my kids would like them. I like having tomatoes on my cheeseburgers so I might have to try putting them on next time I make these. Other toppings could include a piece of American cheese or even pepper jack cheese. I left the pickles on the outside to keep them cold and crunchy.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Balls Ingredients

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Flatten refrigerator biscuits to about 3 1/2 inches across. I used Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits that come in a 4 pack. Top them with shredded mozzarella cheese, shredded cheddar cheese and browned hamburger pieces. I used precooked beef crumbles that are meant to be used as pizza toppings. Next, I added bacon bits. The bacon bits were also precooked but I microwaved them for about 30 seconds to make them more crispy. Then, add a little more cheese, if desired, and sprinkle with some black pepper and onion powder.

Gather the edges up around the toppings. I had to stretch the dough a bit to get it to come together. Just don’t stretch too much or the dough will tear. Then, pinch together at the top.

Place the pizza balls into a greased pie pan with the seams (or pinched side) on the bottom. Brush the tops with a beaten egg white.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Balls Parmesan

Sprinkle the tops with grated Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 425°F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Bacon cheeseburger pizza balls have to be served with pickle slices, ketchup and french fries, right? They taste so good with a slice of a pickle and a dab of ketchup on each bite. I made these for an after school snack for my kids but if you want to make them for a larger crowd or for a meal, just increase the number of pizza balls you make and put them into a 9×13″ pan instead of a pie pan.

  1. I wonder….I have a biscuit recipe that actually requires the biscuits to be frozen before cooking (minimum 1hr freeze, I’ve frozen them for up to several weeks for easy breakfast biscuits), I wonder if it would work with this to create a freeze-able “cook when ready” snack….

  2. I think a baking powder biscuit recipe would work too – and it would be cheaper. I use the one in Joy of Cooking, but I found a recipe online here:

  3. These are such a fun dinner idea, Tonia…..any way you can switch it up is great when there are kids involved!!

  4. Hi

    Just for us foreigners, whats is refrigerator bisquit dough? Do Young have a recepie for the dough? Don’t Think we Can buy that here In DK :)

  5. Making this recipe tonight for dinner. Love your style here at Gunny sack… the whole series of pizza balls/ect has been awesome. We tried your cheese bombs last week and they were indeed the bomb. lol. thanks for the ideas! :)

  6. I bet these would be good with left over turkey as well with a little stuffing mixed in. If I try that I’ll stop back and let you know.

  7. so this looks so good but my question would be do i have to bake them in a glass pie pan or can it be an aluminium foil one or can i even use a cookie sheet…does it really matter for this recipe?…i dont want to take a chance and mess them up lol

  8. Just made them but put a Philly spin on it! Used Cheese Whiz and Cheesesteak! Really good! My family loved them. Thanks!

  9. making for a party tomorrow… to distinguish between the pizza and the burger rolls… i am sprinking the burger rolls with sesame seeds. cant wait.

  18. Yum! I’m trying to put together a ton of freezer meals for when I start a new job, and won’t have time to cook, and these are perfect!
    Thanks for sharing such delicious photos :)

    • Great idea Ali! Are you going to be sharing any of your freezer meals? I’m always curious about what kind of meals work good for freezing.

    • Yes indeed! I’m doing a whole weeks worth of cooking and prepping, and working on a post about the adventure :) Hoping to be done with round 1 by Sunday. Then onto round 2, which I think these cheeseburger balls will need to be added to!
