Toasted buns topped with ground beef, pizza sauce, cheese and any of your favorite pizza toppings like mushrooms, onions, bacon etc. This was one of the first meals I made when I left my parents house and I am still making it 40 years later. It is a very kid friendly meal because you can put only the items they like on individual pizza burgers. I even ask them what kind of cheese they want which keeps everyone happy!

  1. Something I love about your recipes is you take pretty well known commonly beloved foods and recreate them into something unique and fun!! I always think β€œHow is this not a common thing?!”. I just love this idea! I bet I could substitute the burger meat with some vegan meat and keep the regular around for the husband. Thanks for sharing, Diane! Hope you are well.

  2. This was a go-to meal in our house when I was growing up. Every Saturday during the late fall and winter, my mom made these for dinner. I loved these!!! We lost the recipe over the years and now I have it again. Thank you Diane!!

  3. Pizza burgers, what a cracking idea.

    Definitely one for my “single man’s cooking” collection. I’d like to try it with my own home-made pizza sauce, it would be a good way to use up the leftover which I always seem to have.
