Burger-pizza recipe from 1959

Hunt's presented this in december 1959 as a new kind of pizza that is ready in 30 minutes. The recipe, developed by chefs especially for Hunt's, makes two 8-inch burger-pizzas.

1 cup packaged biscuit mix

pure vegtable oil

1/2 lb. ground chuck



garlic salt

1/2 tsp. oregano or basil

1 8-oz can of tomato sauce

1 tbsp. chopped parsley

1/4 lb swiss cheese, cut in 1-inch strips

Prepare dough and divide in half. Roll each piece to fit bottom and sides of 8-inch pie pan. Brush with oil. Put half of the remaining ingredients on each pie in the following order: crumble beef evenly over the dough, sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic salt and crumbled oregano or basil. Cover with tomato sauce and parsley. Arrange cheese strips on top, like spokes of a wheel. Bake in hot oven (400F) about 20 minutes, or until brown and cheese has melted.
