Pizza Burger


Looking for something different?  In the mood for pizza, but a burger sounds good too?  Well here you go – the perfect choice!

Complete with onions, pepperoni, beef, tomatoes and pizza sauce with a hefty portion of cheese….

What you need:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ¾ cup chopped pepperoni
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb blend
  • 1 small tomato
  • ½ cup thinly sliced onion
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • ¾ cup prepared pizza sauce
  • 4 ciabatta rolls

How to Do it:

Mix the first six ingredients together, blending well.  I use my hands to do this.  Place in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.

Using a small amount of oil, cook the onions until they are soft and just beginning to brown.  Add ¼ cup pizza sauce to them and cook until caramelized.  Set aside.

Form the meat mixture into four patties – make them fairly flat.  Cook until desired doneness – we like them rare.

While the burgers are cooking, cut the rolls in half and toast in the oven on both side.  Place the bottoms on foil and top with the cheese and sliced tomatoes.

Broil until the tomato begins to bubble and the cheese is melting.

Top that with a burger, some onions and 2 Tablespoons of pizza sauce.

Put the top on and serve it hot!

Serve with a salad and an appetite!

Serves 4
