Beef Pizza Burgers Recipe

Beef Pizza Burgers Recipe

The home economists in our Test Kitchen came up with this tasty switch from the usual burger. Italian-seasoned ground beef patties are stuffed with mozzarella cheese, then topped with pizza sauce and green pepper rings for a flavorful twist.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 2 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 hamburger buns, split
  • 3 tablespoons pizza sauce, warmed
  • 4 green pepper rings


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, bouillon, Italian seasoning and salt. Crumble beef over mixture; mix well. Shape into four thin patties. Place a slice of cheese on two patties; top with another patty and press edges to seal.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Serve on buns with pizza sauce and green pepper rings. Yield: 2 servings.

"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"
