IT taste great!

Ingredients:

For the Base:

4 hamburger patties

For the Topping:

2 canned tomatoes, peeled, chopped into small cubes and thoroughly mixed with a generous teaspoon of tomato puree, or you can also use some pizza sauce, about 4 or 5 tablespoons

1 generous tablespoon prosciutto or salty ham, chopped

1 generous tablespoon canned mushrooms, drained and chopped

mozzarella cheese sliced, enough to cover 4 patties or about a handful of grated “dry” mozzarella

1/2 clove garlic crushed or finely chopped

2 pinches dried oregano, only 1 pinch if using pizza sauce

1 pinch ground black pepper

For the Rolls:

2 fresh rolls, about the same size as the patties

butter

Instructions:

Add the ham, mushrooms, garlic, oregano, and pepper to the tomato mix and stir through.

The patties should preferably be broiled under a grill or cooked on a Weber-like barbecue with the lid on.

Grill/broil the patties until half cooked and flip them over. Barbecue:- immediately spoon the sauce onto the patties, cover liberally with cheese and put the lid on the barbecue. Oven/Broiler:- wait a minute or two after turning the patties before you add the sauce and cheese. The burgers are ready when the cheese has melted.

I have made these Pizza Burgers in a frying pan and it works quite well but you have to adapt slightly. I pre-warmed the sauce before spooning it onto the turned patties, added the cheese and put a lid on the pan.

Split the rolls and toast the cut surfaces lightly (under grill, on barbecue or in a dry pan) just before the patties are done. Spread a little butter on the toasted surfaces, add the patty and enjoy a great tasting Regina Pizza Burger.
You could use 4 rolls and top the patty with the other half of the roll but I prefer them this way.
