This is very different from the traditional hamburger patty, but if your kids enjoy both burgers and pizza, then they'll love this. Mine certainly do!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, eggs, onion, green bell pepper, salt, ground black pepper, Italian-style seasoning, sage, garlic powder, 1/2 cup pizza sauce and stewed tomatoes. Mix well and form into 24 patties using a 1/4 cup measuring cup OR an ice cream scoop.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the mushrooms and olives and set aside. Arrange 12 patties on 2 ungreased baking sheets. Place 4 slices of pepperoni on each patty, then a small amount of the mushroom olive mixture, and then a slice of mozzarella cheese. Top each patty off with another patty and pinch the edges all around to seal everything into the middle. Finally, top each with a drizzle of remaining pizza sauce and some shredded mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes.

I cut this recipe in half. I did follow the recipe closely, only using finely chopped red pepper in the patties instead of green peppers. I did use a homemade pizza sauce. This was an interesting way to prepare patties--it's like a mixture between meatballs, meat loaf and pizza. I had a difficult time keeping the stewed tomatoes in the patties and the mushrooms, olives and pepperoni was a bit awkward on top even though it's held in place with the mozzerella cheese. Though it's not quite a home run for us yet, the base recipe was great and I think I'll play with it a little to make it a family favorite.

I made this recipe much healthier and it tasted great! I used 1/2 ground pork and 1/2 ground chicken breast. I used egg whites and panko bread crumbs and omitted the salt all together. I used green onions instead of the gr bell pepper. I stuffed these w/ Canadian bacon, onion, reduced fat mozz chz, and roasted red bell peppers. I grilled these outside. I topped them w/ sauted onions and roasted red bell pepper w/ a little of a low sugar spag. sauce (which I also added a spoon full inside the patties and mixed w/ the meat). I probably cut the fat and calories by at least 1/2! These were good!

These patties were very good! My kids loved them sooo much. I made them again the next day. The only thing I did day 2 was I cooked them on the grill and put the veggies, sauce and cheese on top. Either way....YUM YUM!!!!!!!
