  • 1 pound Certified Angus Beef ® 80% lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 cups finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 small onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tube store bought pizza dough (13.8 oz.)
  • 4 slices American cheese
  1. Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef in one even layer, season the top with salt, pepper and paprika. Sear 2 minutes untouched to brown.
  2. Using a heat-proof spatula, chop up beef and stir. Top with cabbage and onion; sear 2 more minutes untouched. Continue chopping up beef, folding in the cabbage and onions; sear 3 more minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  4. Open pizza dough onto a clean surface. Form a 12 by 14-inch rectangle, cut into 4 equal sized rectangles. Place a slice of cheese in the center of each rectangle.
  5. Mound a quarter of the beef mixture on top of each slice of cheese, fold each corner of the dough in to the middle, pinching seams shut with fingers.
  6. Place seam-side-down on sheet pan lined with parchment or nonstick baking mat. Bake 6 minutes, rotate pan 180 degrees and bake 6 more minutes until golden crisp.
