This delicious pizza is so easy to make with purchased or homemade pizza dough, leftover roast beef, barbecue sauce, and cheese, along with other toppings


1 1/4 cups barbecue sauce
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 to 1 1/2 cups leftover roast beef, sliced and diced or cut in thin strips
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
2 small plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
3/4 cup Monterey Jack and Colby or Cheddar cheese blend
1 cup shredded Mozarella cheese
burger or beef grill seasoning blend, optional
ground black pepper


Bring barbecue sauce and garlic to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside.
Fit pizza dough in a pizza pan, making a rolled 1-inch edge, or fit into a large deep-dish pizza pan; spread with the barbecue sauce. Sprinkle the roast beef over the sauce, then top with the sliced onion and sliced tomatoes. cover with the cheeses, then sprinkle lightly with grill seasoning blend and ground black pepper.
Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes, until crust is browned and cheese is melted and bubbly.


I didn't add many extra toppings to this pizza, mainly because I wanted the sloppy joe flavors to stand out. Feel free to add your favorite toppings. Jalapeno pepper rings, sliced black olives, sliced plum tomatoes, thinly sliced bell pepper rings, and mushrooms are just a few possibilities.


pizza dough for 1 pizza, homemade or purchased


1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon spicy mustard or Creole mustard
1 teaspoon Cajun or Creole seasoning, or a seasoned salt blend
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese, or a Cheddar and Monterey Jack Blend
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with onion and celery in the oil, breaking up the ground beef into small pieces. Cook, stirring, until beef is well browned and onions are lightly browned. Stir in tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, Creole seasoning, chili powder, and pepper. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about 4 to 5 minutes.
Fit pizza dough into a 12 to 14-inch pizza pan. Spread ground beef mixture over the pizza evenly. Top with sliced onion and shredded cheeses. Bake at 400°. for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is browned and cheeses and topping are bubbly and melted.


Arrange and bake these nachos on an ovenproof platter or shallow baking dish, or use several smaller baking dishes or ovenproof plates.


1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped, optional
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Tortilla chips, 1 large bag
2 plum tomatoes, diced
4 green onions, thinly sliced
jalapeno pepper rings or diced jalapeno peppers
3 to 4 cups shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese blend
Optional Toppings and Sauces
chopped cilantro
sour cream


Brown the ground beef and onions over medium heat until beef is no longer pink and onions are softened. Add green bell pepper, chili powder, cumin, refried beans, and tomato sauce. Simmer over low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed.
Heat oven to 375°. F.
Spread some of the beef and bean mixture on each chip and arrange the chips in a single layer on the large baking dish or ovenproof plate, or use smaller ovenproof plates or dishes. Sprinkle the layer with a little of the diced tomato, sliced green onions, and jalapeno peppers. Sprinkle each chip with some of the cheese and make another layer of chips. Repeat with the tomato, green onions, peppers, and top with more cheese. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Makes enough for 6 to 8 people.

I canned pint jars of sloppy joes so I would be ready for those occasions when a quick meal is in order.
I/we love sloppy joes but I never thought of putting the mix on pizza. I now have a new go-to quick meal!

The barbeque beef pizza sounds fantastic. I just happen to have the sauce and some brisket. Now, if I can just do the rest. Sounds delicious
