Old-school pizza burgers


Introduction: Pizza Burgers are a quick and delicious twist on the classic hamburger. This recipe combines the flavors of pizza with juicy ground beef, creating a family favorite that’s ready in under thirty minutes. Feel free to customize the toppings to suit your taste!


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni (or more to taste)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 English muffins, split and toasted


  1. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until it’s browned and cooked through. Break it apart with a spatula as it cooks. Drain any excess grease.
  2. Add the chopped onions and minced garlic to the skillet with the cooked beef. Sauté for a few minutes until the onions are soft and translucent.
  3. Stir in the marinara sauce, sliced mushrooms, and sliced pepperoni. Let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. If you prefer a spicier kick, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes at this stage.
  4. Preheat your oven’s broiler.
  5. Place the split and toasted English muffins on a baking sheet, cut side up.
  6. Spoon the pizza burger mixture evenly onto each English muffin half. Be generous with the toppings!
  7. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the tops of the burger mixture on each muffin.
  8. Place the baking sheet with the loaded muffins under the broiler. Watch closely and broil for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Be careful not to burn them.
  9. Remove from the oven, and let them cool for a minute or two before serving.


  • Feel free to customize your pizza burgers with your favorite pizza toppings, such as olives, bell peppers, or even pineapple.
  • If you’re not a fan of pepperoni, you can substitute it with cooked and crumbled sausage, bacon, or additional ground beef.
  • Serve these delicious pizza burgers with a side salad or your favorite beverages for a complete meal. Enjoy!
