Pizza Burger

Pepperoni Pizza Burger

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 so the decision never has to be made again.

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

It definitely “feels” like pizza and has the stringy cheesiness of 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, your family and friends, anybody that loves pizza and burgers.

Pepperoni Pizza Burger

Prep Time: 45 minutes
Additional Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes


  • This pizza dough, formed into burger buns
  • 1 lb ground round
  • 6 oz pepperoni, diced
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp seasoned salt
  • 8 oz Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz Muenster cheese, shredded
  • Fresh basil leaves.


  1. With prepared pizza dough, make 4 buns by forming 4 round discs with the dough, a little smaller than you want them to be. Bake on 400° for 10-14 minutes, until done.*
  2. Combine ground round, pepperoni and Worcestershire sauce in a large mixing bowl and form into 4 burgers.
  3. Pan fry or grill until desired doneness. Add equal amounts of cheeses to each and cover until melted and remove.
  4. While burgers are grilling, mix tomatoes with basil through salt; set aside.
  5. Assemble burgers by adding sauce on bottom bun, then burger, more sauce, another burger, more sauce, a basil leaf and top with remaining bun.
  6. Enjoy!


*You will probably have dough left, unless you make really big buns or need to make more than 4 burgers, so refrigerate it and make pizza the next day (up to 3 days).
