Total Time

For years, I used this recipe to make pizza meat loaf, which was absolutely killer. I decided to try it as burgers for a party, and they were a smashing success. Everyone left with the recipe. —Dennis Barter, Reedsburg, Wisconsin

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup pizza sauce, divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped turkey pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
