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!
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.

Sprinkle the tops with grated Parmesan cheese.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Balls Recipe

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.

    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….

    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.

  5. says

    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

      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!
