BACON CHEESEBURGER … PIZZA
Yes you read that right. According to Judy and Lorin Galassi, owners of Papa Murphy’s in Susanville, they are now making a Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza. Lorin says it's the best he's tasted. They take a freshly made pizza crust, top it with a burger sauce, pile on mozzarella cheese, ground beef, crispy bacon, fresh onions and roma tomatoes, and it wouldn't be a cheeseburger without a layer of dill pickle chips. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of chedder cheese.
