1 lb. 95% lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup dill pickle slices, diced
3/4 cup ketchup
2 tsp. yellow mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
2 packages (11 oz each) refrigerated French bread dough (keep refrigerated until ready to use)
6 slices American cheese
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese (optional)

Optional toppings such as shredded lettuce, tomato slices, dill pickle slices, additional ketchup and mustard

Preheat over to 400

Place ground beef in 12-inch skillet and cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink - breaking beef into crumbles; drain.

Chop onion and dice pickles.

In a mixing bowl, combine onion, pickles, ketchup, mustard and garlic. Mix well. Add ground beef; mix well.

Unroll one package of the bread dough onto a large round stone (or pizza pan); roll and stretch to edge of stone.

Cut cheese slices in half and arrange evenly over dough to within 1 inch of edge. Spoon meat mixture over cheese; spread evenly.

Unroll remaining package of dough directly over filling, matching edges of dough and shaping to fit as dough is unrolled. Trim excess dough from corners using pizza cutter; forming even edges. Roll and crimp edges to seal.

Drizzle oil over dough; spread evenly. If desired, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over dough.

Using pizza cutter, make three crisscross cuts, about 6 inches long across center of top crust to vent.

Bake 18-20 minute or until deep golden brown. Remove from oven; cut into wedges. Serve with toppings, if desired.
