This Insane Big Mac Pizza Is A Food Lover's Dream Come True

On a recent grocery trip, my roommate Matt and I were batting around ideas for a Big Mac pizza.

A while back we did a Taco Bell Lasagna and a couple weeks before that we made an In-N-Out Pie, but we knew the iconic McDonald's Big Mac deserved some attention.

As is usual for our completely inefficient grocery store visits, our ideas escalated from aisle-to-aisle.

By the time we hit the fridge of pre-made pizza dough (*cue groans from the pizza dough enthusiasts*), Matt had an epiphany: We had to do two layers of dough to pay homage to the damn near unnecessary middle bun of the McDonald's Big Mac.

Here is Matt at the exact moment of epiphany:

After loading up at the grocery store, we hit the McDonald's Drive Thru. The best part about $40 worth of McDonald's is all the Monopoly play pieces you get to win nothing from:

We wanted the pizza to carry both the taste and visual cues of the Big Mac. Here's the bottom layer of dough using the extra Big Mac sauce we ordered:

The hidden layer includes burger patties, cheese, sauce and onions. The top gets hit with more sauce, fries and sliced patties. Then we put it in the oven for 20-ish minutes at 425 °F:

After cooking, we hit the pie with some shredded lettuce and more sauce... and, most importantly, LOOK AT THAT SESAME SEED CRUST:

And for the first time ever... we collectively got to say, "Here's a slice of a Big Mac":

What a time to be alive.
