Recipe of the Week: John’s Perfect Pizza Burgers

The following simple recipe for Perfect Pizza Burgers comes to us from SurvivalBlog reader John M..

John says:  “This is a chef’s surprise dinner that most folks have never tried. Be advised that you should make a bunch of these burgers, because they will not stop at eating just one. Seriously, people become piranhas eating these and will beg you for the recipe.”

This is a hamburger recipe that sandwiches pizza ingredients between two thin beef patties.


Start with 85 to 90% hamburger mix in the usual spices and add a 1/8 cup of Worcestershire to each pound of meat. Make flat patties that are only about 1/4-inch thick using about an apple-sized ball of meat (the patty will be about small pancake size.)

On each patty spread a tablespoon of commercially-made pizza sauce (from a jar or can) in the middle. But don’t spread it all the way to the edge of the patty.

Next, top the sauce with 2 tablespoons of grated mozzarella cheese.

Now gently place another flattened 1/4-inch thick patty on top and press the edges together with your fingers. (Do not flatten the filled center area).

Gently cook on the grill like a regular hamburger, you can tell they are about ready when small amounts of sauce and cheese peeks out.
