  • 1 [13.4 oz] can refrigerated pizza dough [such as Pillsbury Classic] or 1 lb homemade pizza dough
  • olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion small dice
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • garlic salt & black pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 slices bacon cooked & crumbled

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Topping:
  • 1 Tbsp butter melted
  • garlic salt
  • onion powder

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a saucepan, cook the diced onion in a couple of drizzles of olive oil until it begins to soften. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the ground beef. Season with garlic alt and black pepper to your taste. Cook until browned and no pink remains. Drain any excess fat from the pan.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce continuing to cook for 1-2 minutes then set aside to cool. [Tip: The ground beef can be cooked in advance, and refrigerated until you're ready to assemble the swirl bread for a time saver.]

  • Sprinkle with 1 cup of shredded cheese. Arrange the cooked ground beef and bacon on top. Drizzle with ketchup and mustard.
  • Top with chopped dill pickles.

  • Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt, onion powder and 1 tsp of sesame seeds. [dried parsley, if desired]
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes until the top is golden.
  • Rest for 8-10 minutes before cutting into 1-inch slices.
