These Pizza Burger Sandwiches With Pepperoni are my family's FAVORITE! So easy to make-can be made in the crock pot or on the stove top. Have it ready when you walk through the door at night.
Pizza without the crust. Pizza with toppings you love. The kids love these Pizza Burger Sandwiches With Pepperoni and they ask for it all the time.
When you can get ground beef on sale, these delicious sandwiches are a treat for the family and to the taste buds. Add a few pizza topping favorites, some crusty hamburger buns and you have a winner of a supper.
The best part?? You can put anything you want in to the mix. You will want to add pizza sauce, of course, but if you are a meat lover's pizza kind of person, add extra sausage or ham. Do you like veggies? Don't forget the green peppers or mushrooms.
As for us, I typically add pepperoni to the hamburger. I would like green peppers, red peppers, mushrooms, but, alas, my family would not.
Now, I have shared a few different pizza recipes with you over the years such as this Pizza Casserole with Ravioli or the Pizza on a Stone. We do like our pizza. This Pizza Burger Sandwiches With Pepperoni is just another way to eat pizza. That can't be wrong, right?
- ground beef (we typically use 85% lean for this recipe)
- pizza sauce
- favorite pizza toppings
- hamburger buns
If you want to cook this pizza burger on the stove top, simply brown the ground beef, add the other toppings you want then add the pizza sauce. Cook on medium heat. If you want to cook in a crock pot and it is just for your family, I would cook it in a small crock pot like this one. It is perfect for meals such as this, or to cook the meat for a beef and noodles dish. If you are cooking for a crowd, of course, use a bigger one.
Be sure to toast the buns before you put the meat on them. It will taste fine either way, but we find the sandwiches are firmer and has a nice crunch with the toasted bun.
You can toast the buns in the broiler of your oven. Place the buns on a baking sheet and toast them for 2-3 minutes. Be sure to watch them carefully and make sure they don't burn.
