OK I know we are a little behind with our recipes, but with all the baby tests, updates, news & all the other stuff going on in our lives….it is safe to say we’ve been otherwise occupied!

There are a ton of burger recipes out there and we are a on a mission this summer to try as many as possible! We’ve been making this one for a couple years now (thanks Rob Rainford) and it is one of our favourites and always a hit!

Pizza Burgers

2lb – ground beef
1 cup – chopped pepperoni (we buy it sliced from the deli and then chop it)
1/3 cup -parmesan cheese, grated
2 tbsp – pizza sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

8 slices Cheese (provolone or mozzarella)
8 Buns (your favourite)

Place ground beef, pepperoni, parmesan cheese and pizza sauce into a large bowl. Mix ingredients until well combined Form 8 burger patties. Place burgers on a tray.

Preheat barbeque to 375°F/190°C or medium high heat. Oil the grill.
Drizzle burgers with oil and season with salt and pepper.

Place burgers on grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Place a slice of cheese on each burger for final minute of cooking. If you like toasted buns, now is the time to place buns on grill for 1 minute or until toasted. Close lid and allow cheese to melt.

Remove burgers, please onto buns and serve with whatever condiments float your boat. Enjoy!
