Burger Week - Day 5: Pizza Passion






Not a bad ending to Burger Week! Pizza has always been a passion, as you will soon see when I launch a new "week" of flatbreads. But for now, here is a big honking pizza burger.

Ingredients:
Kaiser roll
5oz (approx) ground round
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella
3 or 4 slices pepperoni
1 or 2 tbsp of your favorite pizza sauce

Meat Seasoning:
Kosher salt
Pepper (black or white)
Dried oregano
Dried basil
Dried parsley

Use fresh herbs if you like, but dried mixes well with the meat for more even flavoring. Once I cooked the burger and toasted the kaiser roll, I transferred everything to non-stick foil and broiled it for a few minutes in the oven. The pepperoni really gave this burger a kick, and was a great complement. Use fresh mozzarella if you prefer...I admit it's even more amazing that way but I didn't have any on hand at the time.

The Burger Week archive can be found HERE.
The most popular one so far via internet is definitely the Spicy Sloppy Joe. My personal favorite of the five: Classic Bacon Cheddar Melt.

I hope you try some of these recipes, and love them!
