Bush loves cheeseburger pizza

Cheeseburger pizzaGeorge Bush’s chef has revealed the US President’s favourite supper — a cheeseburger pizza. It consists of a standard cheese and tomato base, with the burger’s ingredients scattered on top.

Chef Cristeta Comerford spilled the beans at an annual gathering of the cooks to world statesmen and royals.

She said: “For dinner the President loves what we call home-made ‘cheeseburger pizzas’ because every ingredient of a cheeseburger is on top of a margherita pizza. “For lunch he loves cinnamon bread with peanut butter and organic honey, with home-made potato chips and pickles.” She added: “But he’s extremely disciplined and exercises every day. He watches his portion control!”

Cheeseburger pizzas were invented in 2005 by teams on the American version of TV’s The Apprentice, who had to come up with a new flavour. Toppings include ground beef and cheese, ketchup, pickles, gherkins, fried onions, bacon and tomatoes.

Pizza firm Domino’s now makes them in the US, and admits a large one has 1,600 calories and the highest level of cholesterol on its menu.

I beg to differ with your comment that cheeseburger pizza was invented by the participants on The Apprentice. The Murray Brothers' Caddyshack at World Golf Village in St. Augustine, FL, has had Lex & Terry's Cheeseburger Pizza on their menu since they opened their restaurant way back in 2001! It's a pizza crust covered with browned ground beef and topped with shredded cheddar; baked long enough to brown the crust and melt the cheese; then scattered with shredded lettuce, chopped hamburger dill pickles, diced tomatoes and onions. Ketchup, mustard and mayo on the side. It is YUMMY! :-)
