Pizza Burgers

Pizza Burger

This recipe is a mash up of all my favorite foods in one…  well, not all of them because a scoop of ice cream would have been a weird addition here, but close!

This pizza burger mashup is, like all my recipes, is totally customizable. Sub out whatever patty you want! Try it with a portobello mushroom, turkey burger, or even and eggplant parmigiana cutlet. As for the toppings, go wild with whatever “pizza toppings” you like, except not pineapple because that’s gross.

If you are like me and you like to dip your pizza in ranch, it would behoove you to add a couple tablespoons on the top bun for a little extra tang!
