Servings 6 burgers


  • For Burgers:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon French's Tomato Ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onions
  • pinch of salt pepper & smoked paprika
  • For Pizza Burger:
  • 1 pound pizza dough if refrigerated let sit out at room temp for about 20 minutes before using
  • 6 cooked burger patties
  • 6 slices of your favorite cheese folded into fourths OR approx 1 cup shredded cheese / 2-3 tablespoons each burger
  • French's Tomato Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • pickle chips/slices
  • onions optional
  • 2 tablespoon butter melted
  • a pinch of garlic powder Parmesan cheese & dried parsley
  • flour for dusting


  • For Burgers:
  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Roll beef mixture into 6 even size balls.
  • Pat/shape into patties, about 2 1/2" round.
  • Cook burgers your preferred method and to just below your preferred temp. I cooked mine on a cast iron skillet to about medium rare - they will continue to cook a bit when in oven.
  • Let cool down a little before assembling pizza burger.
  • To assemble Pizza Burger:
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Dust a nonstick cookie sheet with a bit of cornmeal or flour.
  • On a floured surface, cut pizza dough into 6 even portions. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Shape dough into rounds, just about double the size of the burger. Make sure the dough rounds are of even thickness - you don't want the centers too thin. If the dough is springing back too much, let it rest at room temp for a few more minutes. If dough is too sticky, dust hands with flour.
  • Place cheese (slices or 2-3 tablespoon shredded) in center of dough. Squirt ketchup & mustard on cheese. Place a few pickle or onion slices on next. Finish with burger.
  • Carefully fold, pinch and pull dough to cover burger and sides. Make sure dough is covering all areas.
  • Place wrapped burger on cookie sheet, seam side down.
  • Repeat with remainder of ingredients.
  • Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder, parmesan cheese and parsley.
  • Bake for 14 - 18 minutes until tops are light golden brown.
  • Let burgers rest for a few minutes, serve & enjoy.
