Pepperoni Pizza Burger

Sharing is caring!

I decided to combine two of the greatest comfort foods ever….pizza and burgers. If you’re craving both, you don’t have to choose. I made a Pepperoni Pizza Burger to make life easy for you.

You’ll also appreciate the fact that I made the buns out of my pizza dough. 

It definitely “feels” like pizza.

Of course, you can use regular burger buns if you don’t want to make the pizza dough. It will still be fantastic.

These are pizza dough buns. Not regular ass buns.

Pizza. Dough. Buns.

So, here’s how I did this.

I made my usual burger with ground round (80/20), and chopped the shit out of some pepperoni and mixed it all up in there. Although I like lean beef in certain recipes, you need some fat on a burger to have flavor.

If the beef is too lean, you won’t have much flavor, and it definitely won’t be juicy. 

Of course, I added basil, oregano and other things of that nature.

Let’s put the Pepperoni Pizza Burger together.

If you break this down…it’s not difficult at all.

After making the pizza dough (which is pretty easy) you make your buns. you can just throw this together and look like a rockstar if you’re trying to impress a friend, your neighbor, or a date.

Nah, on second thought don’t try to impress anybody.

Make it for yourself, and 

Here’s your printable –

Assemble burgers by adding sauce on bottom bun, burger, more sauce, another burger, more sauce, a basil leaf and top with remaining bun.
