My mother made Broiled Pizza Burgers when I was growing up. We like them for Sunday supper, and they're even faster to fix if you use pre-browned hamburger from the freezer. We sometimes substitute slices of cheddar for the process cheese. —Mrs. Ann Bailes, Anderson, South Carolina

"Great receipe for a quick meal. No soggy bottoms and has a good flavor. I doubled the meat mixture and made the burgers up as I needed them.........even taste better the next day after all the flavors blended. Will play around with ingredients the next time I make them."

"This is the BEST pizza burger recipe EVER!!! I used pizza seasoning instead of oregano and petite diced tomatoes. I added shredded cheddar cheese to the meat mixture and put shredded mozzarella cheese on top. I also toasted the buns so they aren't so soggy. My husband told me to throw away my other pizza burger recipes!!!"

"This is definitely a favorite recipe in our house! I like to toast the buns a little in the oven before I put on the toppings. That way they don't get as soggy."

"SOUNDS LIKE ALOT OF SALT FOR A SANDWICH PERHAPS ELIMANATING THE SALT ADDED AND USE ONION POWDER INSTEAD OD ONION SALT WOULD GIVE THE SAME TASTE BECAUSE THERE IS ALOT OF SALT IN PROCESSED CHEESE SO I DON'T THINK YOU REALLY NEEDETO ADD SALT"
