Bacon Cheeseburger Roll-up

Here is a recipe from kraft foods that Gwen introduced us to. It is really simple and quick, definitely not gourmet but perfect for those days that you don't feel like one. It is also great for lunches. Check the comments for a few modifications.

1 lb. lean ground beef
4 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onions (about 1 small)
1/2 lb. (8 oz.) velveeta, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 pkg. (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza crust

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Cook ground beef, bacon and onions in large skillet on medium-high heat until ground beef is evenly browned, stirring occasionally. Drain; return meat mixture to skillet. Add velveeta; cook until completely melted, stirring frequently. Cool 10 min.
UNROLL pizza dough onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Press into 15x8-inch rectangle. Top evenly with meat mixture. Roll up dough, starting at one of the long sides. Rearrange, if necessary, so roll is seam-side down on baking sheet.
BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown. Cut diagonally into slices to serve.

Velveeta is not a neccesity. We have used sharp, pepper jack, and swiss. All of them are really good.

Also, I prefer to cook my bacon until crispy before adding the hamburger and onion. I just have a thing about soggy bacon. Bleh!

Final tip; to jazz this up a bit, try adding about 1/4 cup of ketchup and 1/4 cup of bbq sauce. It really kicks up the flavor. (You could also add just one or the other. Just don't add too much)
We always serve this with ranch dressing or ketchup on the side. But, kraft foods also recommends mustard and salsa as possible dipping agents. For fun, serve this with a dill pickle - get the total cheseburger flavor.
