Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Step 2

On a lightly floured surface, roll and shape pizza dough into 9-inch round.

Step 3

Place on a parchment-lined pan. Let stand, in a warm place, for 15 minutes or until room temperature.

Step 4

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Cool completely.

Step 5

Meanwhile, stir mayonnaise with sour cream, horseradish, chives, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Step 6

Gently combine lean ground beef with medium ground beef, breadcrumbs, onion, eggs, garlic, steak spice, Worcestershire, mustard, tomato paste and paprika. Shape into a large patty, about 9-inch in diameter and about 1 1/4-inches thick. Transfer to greased rimless plate or baking tray.

Step 7

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat; grease the grate well. Slide patty onto grill. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until well marked. Slide the patty onto a clean plate and cover with a second clean plate. Invert the patty and slide, raw side down, back onto the grill.

Step 8

Reduce the temperature to medium heat. Cook for 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F when inserted into the centre of the patty. Top with cheese; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until melted.

Step 9

Slice the Big Bun in half, horizontally. Spread Horseradish Mayonnaise on both bread halves. Fill with lettuce, tomato, burger, bacon and onion. Cut into 6 wedges. Serve with pickles and waffle fries.
