One of my favorite childhood memories is eating a pizza burger. This simple recipe for an easy pizza burger will become a favorite for your family in no time.
Pizza burgers, like actual pizzas, are one of those amazing things you can customize to your liking. Our kids love when it’s pizza burger time in the summer, because they each get to pick their toppings, and don’t have to share.
I love when we put our Angus BUBBA burgers on the grill for pizza burger night, because no one judges me for my super basic pizza burger choices. For me, it’s all about the sauce and the cheese. Period.
How I Make My Pizza Burger
This no frills girl can appreciate a good dollop of homemade pizza sauce on a toasted bun, with carefully sliced mozzarella cheese on her burger.
Yes, I toast my bun before I make my pizza burger. The slight crunch reminds me of the pizza crust. It’s OK if you’re salivating right now. I totally understand.
I used my homemade pizza sauce, or pizza sauce for the jar, and spread it on the top bun.
Once my BUBBA burger is grilled to perfection, I place it on the bottom bun, and immediately top it with cheese. This ensures you get that cheese pull you’re used to when eating actual pizza.
Using BUBBA burgers for our Pizza Burger Night
Pizza night at our house is the night when things need to be EASY. So, when the weather gets warm, and we switch over to pizza burger night, I need a burger that is convenient to grill. BUBBA burgers provide just that. BUBBA Angus Beef burgers are:
- Ideal for an outdoor cookout on the grill with some good friends
- Ready in 10 minutes or less
- 1 ingredient: 100% BUBBA USDA Angus Beef Chuck
- Naturally Gluten Free
As long as I keep a box of BUBBA burgers in the freezer, and some hamburger buns on hand, we’re always ready to go for pizza burger night.
Use The Toppings You Like
Like I mentioned earlier, this is a family favorite for us because you can choose your own pizza burger adventure. Whatever your favorite toppings are on a pizza will be amazing on a pizza burger. Here are some of our favorites:
- grilled pineapple
- sliced peppers
- roasted red peppers
- sliced mushrooms
- fresh spinach
- grilled onion
