How to Handle Raw Beef

  • Thaw raw ground beef on a plate on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator, to avoid dripping onto other foods.
  • Keep raw and ready-to-eat meats separate.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after handling raw ground beef. Wash cutting boards, bowls, and utensils used to prepare raw ground beef with hot soapy water and rinse well.
  • Use separate plates to carry raw ground beef patties to the cooking area and cooked patties to the serving area.
  • Use a Thermometer to ensure Ground Beef Reaches the Safely Cooked Internal Temperature of 160°F.

Use whole wheat pizza dough to help make this recipe as healthy as possible. Mozzarella is one of the healthier options when it comes to cheese so try not to substitute for another type of cheese.

    I loved this deep dish pizza. I had made it before but had used ground turkey. This time I used the lean beef and it was absolutely delicious.
