This week I decided to make pizza burgers. I wasn't sure Ross would like the idea or think it was wrong. He liked the idea. The burgers ended up being open-faced. I tried to make them as pizza as possible.
ground turkey (20 oz.)
For the actual burger I mixed 85/15 ground turkey, shredded pizza blend cheese, julienned pepperoni slices, pizza seasoning, oregano, and basil. I made the mixture into 6 patties and cooked them on the stove. I sliced and sauteed the mushrooms. I made a full batch of pizza dough. I added oregano, basil, black pepper, and pizza seasoning to the dough. It smelled really good. I was able to make 5 mini pizza crusts out of 1/3 of the dough. I probably could have made 6 though. I think I cooked them--with the pizza sauce on--for about 15 minutes. I assembled the burgers and served them with oven fries.
Thinking back I could have made the mini pizza crusts without the sauce on top, then sliced them in half so the burger would have a top and a bottom. But I kind of like the open face burger. It's more like a pizza.
