Have been making this for years....I use regular cheddar cheese instead of velvetta......I freeze it too so if people drop in I can make this us fast....delicious.

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.

Reminds me of a dear old friend who was the head cook at the high school... This recipe will hit all the bells and whistles!

I drained the tomatoes and added some pizza sauce and chopped pepperoni to mine...topped with mozzarella cheese. They were very good and my whole family loved them!
