Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza
The "take and bake" pizza shop Papa Murphy's has come out with a bacon cheeseburger pizza with ground beef, bacon, "burger sauce" (the ad make no mention what it is exactly, but I'm guessing that it is something like 1000 Island dressing), bacon, three different cheeses, mixed onions, tomatoes and pickles. The only traditional burger topping that is missing is lettuce. While I like the idea, looking at a picture of this item is a TOTAL turnoff - at least to me. I think we can agree that what makes any burger great or not is the meat and the picture shows too little meat and too much bread (i.e., crust) to make me mistake this pizza for a burger. Unless you are a pickle fanatic, this thing just has WAY too many of them on this pizza. If anyone out there has the courage or is curious enough to try one, I'd love to know what you think.
