Pizza Burgers

As I promised yesterday, here's a recipe that I created to use some jumbo seeded hamburger buns.
As a little girl, we'd sometimes go to Taco Tico {before the days of Taco Bell} & I liked to get the taco burger.
This recipe is kind of a recreation of that, only instead of being taco flavored, I choose to go with pizza.

Angie's Pizza Burgers

Brown 1.5 lb hamburger meat & drain.
Return meat to the pan & add in about 1/2 cup each of diced onion & green pepper.
Sprinkle in 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. oregano, salt & pepper to taste.
Chop 12-15 slices of pepperoni into small pieces & stir in.
Lastly, pour in 14 oz. jar of pizza sauce & simmer for 15-20 mins.

On baking sheet, lay out the hamburger buns.
{Any type or size will work --This is an open faced burger, so keep this in mind when deciding servings.  I used  6 buns to make 12 servings.}

Scoop the meat mixture onto the buns, distributing evenly.
Top each with shredded mozzarella & cheddar cheese.
Bake for 15-20 at 375.

I served this with tater tots & it was such fun & yummy meal!

Remember, most recipes {except baking} are general guidelines.
They can usually be tinkered with...leaving out or adding in to the desired preference.


  1. This is a great and easy meal. My girls like it with sloppy joe filling. Thanks for the great money saving ideas.
