Pizza Burgers

Hi Everyone,

Happy Thursday!  Almost to a holiday weekend!  Woohoo!!!  Since it’s the last big Summer BBQ, I thought I would share with you a spin on traditional burgers.

This is my pizza burger!  It’s made with pizza sauce, some spices and love.  Ahhhh, aren’t I sweet?  I wasn’t sure how this burger was going to turn out, but when I took my first bite, I knew this was a good one!!!  It’s cheesy, moist, thick and super duper delicious.  It does have a pizza taste to it!!!  Mmmm, mmmm beefy pizza burgers!!  If you only heard the voice I just made as I was typing this you would really think I was strange.  My dogs just gave me a strange look.  he he

What really makes this burger good is the mozzarella cheese and the fresh basil that I used in place of the lettuce.  My Husband wasn’t sure about this burger, but he must have liked it, he ate two of them!!!  For an added extra pizza taste I also topped it with some more pizza sauce and a tomato.  That made it perfect!!!

To keep the calories low on the burger I decided to use an English Muffin for my bun.  It is only 100 calories and full of fiber and protein.  I really like subbing the basic roll for an English Muffin.  I get more of the burger taste then all of the bread.  Plus its sturdy enough and the right size to hold my burger.  I can never make a flat burger they always come out fat and juicy!  Just the way I like it!!

Do you like to make burgers for your barbecue parties or just for your self and family?  Do you change it up and make different kinds?  I personally love changing up the basics, I think it’s a fun twist and always a surprise to the person who is going to eat it.  I know my Husband was surprised.  Hmmm, I wonder what crazy kind of burger I can make next?
