Velveeta Spicy Cheeseburger Pizza

Guess what?  It's a new pizza recipe created by Kraft!  I bet you were wondering when the next pizza recipe was coming!  Well here it is, and it does not disappoint.  This pizza tastes exactly like a cheeseburger.  I was so it a pizza or a cheeseburger?  Regardless of which one you end up calling it, you have to try it.  This will unmistakably be a hit for your whole family!            

Velveeta Spicy Cheeseburger Pizza

1/2 pound ground beef
8 ounces Velveeta, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 ready to use pizza crust (i used a thin and crispy kind)
10 ounce can of Ro-Tel with chilies, well drained
1/4 cup ketchup
1 cup shredded lettuce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place pizza crust on baking sheet.  Mix together the ketchup and Ro-Tel.  Spread onto the crust.

Brown the beef and drain.  Stir in velveeta until melted.  Layer the meat mixture on top of the tomatoes on the crust.  Bake 10 minutes.  Top with shredded lettuce.    

We served our pizza with the Medusa IPA from Defiant Brewing Co.  See my husband's tasting notes below:

Medusa IPA, Defiant Brewing Co.  Pearl River NY.

American IPA, 6.5% ABV.  Sampled from 12 oz. bottle poured into chilled glass.

Pours golden-amber into glass from bottle.  Minimal head.  Smells floral/slight pine.  Not as strong aroma as most IPAs.  Initially tastes malty, but fades out to hoppy bitterness.  Hop aftertaste lingers for a bit.  It is a decent but not great IPA.  There isn't anything bad about the beer, there just isn't anything special about it.  It just tastes like a generic IPA that you would find at an Applebees.  There are much better alternatives but this is perfectly drinkable.
