Beef Pizza Burgers

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.

    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!

    I tried this recipe the other night and I will say that these were FANTASTIC. My husband and I loved them as well as our little 2 year old son. The only thing we didn't add was the green pepper, but they were still absolutuy fantastic. Very juicy and flavorful.Sue - Ashippun, WI

    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

    These were too salty for us, the family just didn't care for them.
