Pizza Burger


For the Burger Patties:
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup marinara sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
For the Pizza Sauce:
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
For Assembly:
4 hamburger buns
4 slices mozzarella cheese
16 slices pepperoni
1/4 cup sliced black olives
Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)

Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium heat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, Italian breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, marinara sauce, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a patty.
Place the burger patties on the preheated grill or grill pan and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
While the burgers are cooking, prepare the pizza sauce by combining the marinara sauce, dried oregano, and garlic powder in a small bowl.
When the burgers are almost done cooking, place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top of each patty and allow it to melt.
To assemble the burgers, place each cooked patty on a hamburger bun. Top with a generous spoonful of pizza sauce, 4 slices of pepperoni, and a sprinkle of sliced black olives.
Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired, and serve immediately.
