Cake Pan Pizza Recipe

Updated on July 21, 2013

What's Different About This Recipe?

What's different about this recipe than your average pizza? This one isn't round. And it's delicious. More delicious than your average pizza. Partially because you made it and partially because it's so thick and covered in awesome toppings, You won't regret making this pizza.

What You Need

  • 9" x 13" non-stick cake pan
  • 2 packages of pizza dough (powder)
  • 1 can pizza sauce
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • Toppings of choice
  • 1/2 lb+ mozzarella cheese


  • 1 tbs butter
  • Garlic powder


Serves 4 to 8 people. Makes 8 delicious slices.

Step 1: Cook the Ground Beef

Throw your ground beef in a frying pan and get it cooking on a medium heat. If it's frozen, put a lid on the frying pan and cook at a slightly lower heat. As the ground beef cooks, make sure to break it up into smaller and smaller pieces.

While your ground beef is cooking, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Protip: Season the ground beef with your favorite seasonings while it's cooking for a little extra flavor.

Step 2: Make Your Dough

Follow the instructions on the packages of dough. Most doughs call for 1/2 to 2/3 cups hot water per package so double that for 2 packages.

If your dough is too powdery, add a small amount of water.

If your dough is too watery, add a small amount of flour.

Make sure to mix your dough thoroughly before adding flour/water.

Once you've brought your dough to a desirable consistency, cover and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. This is a great opportunity to chop up your toppings.

Step 3: Dough Into The Pan

Put your dough into your cake pan. Spread the dough evenly over the entire cake pan, leaving some extra dough along the edges. Draw that extra dough up the sides of the cake pan to hold all your goodies inside. Keep the bottom fairly thin and make the edges a bit thicker for best results.

Protip: For a little extra flavor, melt a tablespoon of butter in the microwave and add some garlic powder. Then spread the mixture around the crust for a nice garlic flavor (if you aren't going to add garlic as a topping).

Step 4: Sauce Time

Pour your can of pizza sauce onto the dough and spread it out evenly. Simple enough.

Step 5: Add The Ground Beef

Once your ground beef is well cooked, drain the grease and rinse the meat off. Then evenly distribute the ground beef over the dough/sauce. 1 lb of ground beef won't completely cover the pizza but will be enough to have some in each bite.

Step 6: Add The Cheese

Evenly distribute your cheese over the pizza. 1/2 lb of cheese should be plenty, but if you're a cheese lover like me you might want a little more. Not too much though, otherwise the crust will burn while the cheese is still melting. No more than 3/4 lb.

Step 7: Add The Toppings

If you haven't chopped your toppings already, chop them now. Then evenly distribute them over the pizza. I prefer to chop all my toppings on a cutting board, mix them together, then pour them on together (adding topping like pepperoni last). You can add any toppings you like, but my favorite toppings are:

  • White Onions (1/4 of an onion, well chopped)
  • Green pepper (2/3 of a green pepper, well chopped)
  • Jalapenos (1 whole jalapeno, with seeds, well chopped)
  • Mushrooms (2 whole mushrooms, well chopped)
  • Pepperonis

Step 8: Bake To Perfection

Once your pizza is topped to your liking and your oven is preheated to 350 degrees, put your pizza in to bake. Generally it should take 15 to 20 minutes to bake. Check it often because bake times vary depending on how much cheese you put on there. When the cheese is fully melted (a little brown on the edges) and the crust is a little crispy, it's time to take it out.

Step 9: Cool and Serve

Give the pizza 5 to 10 minutes to cool a bit, then cut it into 8 slices and serve your delicious creation!

      Sounds easy enough, and delicious too. Will give it a try. I made pizza before w/my kids and wasn't sure how to make the dough correctly, so I went to the local pizza place and asked to purchase just the raw dough. I did for a few bucks, went home and put it was great!
