These burgers have it all. If you love hamburgers, you’ll enjoy the thick, juicy burger topped with cheese. If you love pizza, you’ll be excited about the pizza slices used as buns. This is the ultimate game day burger and comfort food.

Easy and Delicious Pizza Burgers

In our house, there are two meals we love almost more than anything else – pizza and burgers. They’re both the kind of thing you eat when you’re having a fun family night, and they just make you feel so good. So I decided to combine them into one.

Instructions

In just a few simple steps you’ll be enjoying a burger like you never have before.

Step 1: Prepare pizza according to the package directions.

Step 2: In a medium mixing bowl, gently combine ground beef, salt, and pepper. Be sure not to work the meat too much.

Step 3: Make 4 ground beef patties, creating an indentation in the middle of each patty. (I use a flat-bottomed glass.) This will help your burgers to flatten while cooking.

Step 4: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. When skillet is ready, spray with non-stick cooking spray and add patties.

Step 5: Cook until each side is nicely browned and the center of the hamburger is cooked to your preference. (It is recommended to reach an internal temperature of 160ºF for well-done.)

Step 6: Remove patties from pan and add a slice of mozzarella cheese to each patty, allowing it to melt.

Step 7: When pizza is done, use a round cutter to cut circle “buns” the size of your burgers. You will need to cut 8 buns.

Tips:
