Discover an easy-to-follow recipe for Pizza Burgers OR Burger Pizza with step-by-step photos and video.
This delicious pizza burger twist on a classic lunch favorite is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner that the whole family will enjoy. These burgers are made with saucy ground meat and loads of melted cheese, sandwiched between your favorite buns.
I used to choose between pizza or burger, but now I can enjoy both in one dish. A soft beef patty with melted cheese, black olives, and veggies makes a delicious recipe. Patties can be used as kababs or meatballs in pasta, rice, or spaghetti, not only in burgers.
Burger Patty: I made a beef patty, but if you can't eat beef for religious or medical reasons, you can use mutton, lamb, or chicken as a substitute.
Burger Buns: Here, I used homemade buns for the burgers. I always prefer to use my own spices and bread instead of buying from bakeries.
Onion Powder: To achieve a store-bought taste in your burger patty, it is important to follow my recipe correctly. I highly recommend using onion powder instead of chopped onion, as it will enhance the flavor and keep the patty succulent without breaking apart.
Ginger Garlic Powder: Please keep in mind that this recipe requires only powdered ingredients to ensure that the patty remains firm and does not break while frying. I suggest using fresh ginger and garlic powder instead of ginger garlic paste, as using paste may make the patty turn soggy and moist.
Cheese Slices: For burgers, mozzarella or cheddar cheese
slices are great alternatives to regular cheese.
Black Olives: Olives, whether green or black, are a popular pizza topping. However, I recommend using a high-quality brand of black olives.
Mixed Cheddar and Mozzarella: I used mixed cheese for the topping, while you can use the single cheese that you like most.
Veggies: I added chopped onions, tomatoes, and green peppers to the dish. For a variation, you can substitute them with baby corn, mushroom slices, or jalapenos.
Pizza Seasoning: Pizza seasoning, sprinkled on top, is
Pizza Sauce: A homemade Pizza Sauce can be easily made by mixing chili flakes, thyme, and basil with tomato ketchup.
Tomato Ketchup: I recently used my own homemade ketchup in a pizza burger, but you could also use store-bought if you prefer. I have a suggestion for you - try using chili garlic tomato ketchup in a pizza burger to really bring out the flavors in every bite.
Cheese Sauce: To enhance the flavor of your pizza burger, try adding a delicious cheese sauce. I recommend using a recipe with grated cheese, cheese slices, and cheese sauce. This will result in a mouth-watering, cheesy, and spicy burger. I personally used my own cheese sauce and highly recommend using it in your burger.

How to Make Pizza Burger?
Let's start the recipe by finely mincing the meat. If you have a meat mincer machine at home, it's easy to make it yourself. Otherwise, ask your butcher to use their mincer machine to finely mince the meat. Just make sure they use the tiny hole blades as specified in the recipe for a fine mince.
In this recipe, there is no need for extensive cutting or cooking. However, we will need to prepare the vegetables, chop and slice the onion, tomato, and capsicum, and grate the cheese.
To make the meat dough, start by mixing together salt, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, chili flakes, black pepper, mustard paste, and lemon juice to mince meat. and mix well for 2-3 minutes. Then, add chopped coriander, green chili, and yolks and mix until everything is fully incorporated.
Knead the mixture like dough for 10 minutes, adding cornflour as necessary, and mix well until the meat dough is formed. Finally, let the dough rest for an hour before using.
After an hour of kneading the meat dough, take it out and begin shaping medium-sized portions into patties.
At this stage, you can store the patties for use ahead
In a small bowl, mix hot chili sauce, mustard paste, and mayonnaise together and mix for approximately 2-3 minutes until well combined.
To prepare, start by placing a burger slice on a baking tray. Next, spread pizza sauce on each bun slice and sprinkle chopped onion, tomato, and cheese.
Then, add some capsicum and tomato slices beside black olives. Finally, sprinkle some chili flakes and pizza seasoning. If required, add some more cheese.
Finally, bake the bun slices for 15 minutes at 200C in a preheated oven.
To fry patties, first, apply some oil on a griddle or pan. Place 2-3 patties on the griddle in one batch, or as per the size of your pan. Fry the patties over medium flame. If you fry them on high flame, they will remain uncooked from the inside and burn from the outside.
On the other hand, if you keep the flame low, the patties will turn soggy. Even though this recipe does not require crisp crust patties, you still need to maintain the flame heat to get the perfect result as shown in the video and picture.
Keep flipping the patties until they are fully cooked and get a brownish color on top. Once fried, take them out and place them on kitchen paper to absorb unnecessary oil.
Add butter to the griddle and toast bun slices on low flame for 2 minutes. don't toast on high to avoid burning from the base.
Drizzle some ketchup over the patty and add a slice of cheese. Next, pour some cheese sauce over the cheese slice and add a little more ketchup.
Finally, cover the burgers with the other half of the bun and seal them with skewers on top. Your pizza burgers are now ready to serve! For best results, serve them fresh out of the oven.
