Pizza Burgers

It’s a burger that has the same bells and whistles as a pizza…pepperoni, tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil.  It’s a Pizza Burger and it should be on your menu tonight.

This recipe makes 4 (half-pound) burgers.  

Shopping List
2 pounds of ground beef
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
8 slices of good quality pepperoni
2 tomatoes, sliced
4 thick slices of fresh mozzarella
about 8 to 12 fresh basil leaves
 Burger buns
Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium-high heat.
Combine ground beef and Italian seasoning blend.  Divide mixture into four sections and make four patties (make sure to press down each patty a little in the center to avoid the “burger bulge” when they grill).

Add your burgers to the grill and begin grilling (we do about 6 minutes or so each side).  About a minute before you’re ready to take the burger off of the grill, add two two slices of pepperoni, a thick slice of tomato and one slice of fresh mozzarella to each patty.  Grill another minute or so (the cheese will start to melt a little).  

Remove from grill and add to a burger bun then top with basil leaves.

My kiddos ate these up!  Burgers that have pepperoni on them and taste like a pizza…so good!

    I know I am always asking this but with all your mix and match burgers.. Do you eat side items and how do you mix and match that up fro myour typical Fries and or chips?

      We typically never do fries or chips. We always have either a salad (on this night, we had a Caprese salad with the extra pizza toppings), roasted veggies, sliced avocado…something like that!

    Yum! This would be especially good if you toasted your buns with butter and garlic like garlic bread!
