"I made these Pizza Burgers for my family and they are fantastic. For a little extra flavor I toasted Kaiser Buns on the grill and it was a very nice touch and I did not add was the green pepper.

If you are looking for an excellent Pizza Burger recipe this one is for sure a great one to try."

"I loved these burgers. I cut the green pepper rings super thin and grilled them for a minute or two, while I toasted the buns."

"Love this recipe. I have made it many times. Sometimes I make bigger patties omitting the double burger, and put the cheese on top. Good with catsup, but even better with pizza sauce!"

"My family loves these. I omit the salt and use shredded mozzarella in the middle. Ketchup instead of pizza sauce wokrs fine."

"rwarner: Just omit the beef bouillon and the salt! Or just omit one of them and they won't be salty! Just a thought"
