Pizza Burgers

I just combined two of my all-time favorite comfort foods into a mouthwatering creation with these pizza burgers!

Imagine sinking your teeth into a burger topped with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and pizza sauce.

It’s like a cozy hug from your favorite pizza place and burger joint all at once!

The best part? These pizza burgers are super easy to make at home. I love adding sautéed mushrooms and bell peppers for an extra burst of flavor.

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1⁄2 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 24 pepperoni slices


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef and onion until the beef is browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Drain excess fat.
  • Add the garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to the beef. Stir to combine. Pour in the pizza sauce and mix well. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until heated through.
  • Preheat the oven broiler. Split the hamburger buns and place them cut side up on a baking sheet.
  • Spoon the beef mixture evenly onto the bottom halves of the buns. Top each with 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and 6 pepperoni slices.
  • Place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Watch carefully so they don’t burn.
  • Remove from the oven and place the top buns on the burgers. Serve immediately while hot.
