This epic burger is part of a fun month-long event hosted by Girl Carnivore, but opinions are always my own! Super easy, but with a big taste punch, this Stuffed Pizza Burger is filled with tasty provolone and Italian seasonings, then topped with pizza sauce!
Summer (which WILL get here) is burger season—time to prepare! Today I am recreating my favorite childhood burger, the Stuffed Pizza Burger.
I had actually been planning this tasty burger for awhile and, of course, checking things out online. And most people simply topped a plain patty with pizza sauce and mozzarella. While that’s all well and good, my youthful delight came from biting in and getting a gush of melty cheese. Yum!
And that wasn’t all it had going for it. The meat was full of pizza spices for lots of added flavor. Even the cooking smell was to die for. We’d eat them at a resort town restaurant on rainy days. Courtesy of vacation-weary parents trying to combine kid entertainment and lunch.
Yes, I wanted the whole experience.
Now I admit I avoided making these for years. For one simple reason. Every time my mom made them, the cheese ran out.
So I decided to google how to keep your burgers from falling apart–and found this link. Basically, I work the meat as little as possible, and (this is key) keep the meat cold. I pop the uncooked stuffed pizza burgers into the freezer for a few minutes while the pan heats up and (drum roll) no leaks!
On another prep note, there are two ways to add the spices—mix gently into the meat, or sprinkle on top. Mixing in tastes just a smidge better and doesn’t seem to cause any burger breakage, but I go back and forth on whether it’s worth the extra work. So sometimes I just sprinkle the seasoning on the insides of the patties before pressing together.
I served up the final Stuffed Pizza Burgers to an excited family. Even my picky daughter thought they were good. Without the bun of course. Hmm, that makes it low carb too. So maybe she’s on to something.
Now all of this is a good excuse for celebration. So in partnership with Burger Month and sponsors, there is a giveaway below for some burger related prizes. And if you’re really hungry now, check out the other great contributors below!
