Pepperoni Pizza Burger

The Pepperoni Pizza Burger was developed from our love of Pizza and grilled Burgers. Too often half of the family wanted pizza and half wanted grilled burgers. I developed this recipe to satisfy all. It was a hit and now we never make burgers any other way.

Ingredients 

2 Tsp – Olive Oil
½ Cup – Onion, Chopped
½ Cup – Green Bell Pepper, Chopped
2 Cloves – Garlic, Minced
1, 6oz Pkg –Stick Pepperoni, Ground Fine
1 1/2 Lb – Ground Sirloin
½ Cup – Italian Bread Crumbs
1 Tbsp – Italian Seasoning
1 Tsp – Salt
1 Tsp – Pepper
Oil for grill
2 Tsp – Butter, melted and browned slightly
6 – Chibotta Rolls, sliced in half
6 Slices – Baby Swiss Cheese
6 Slices – Mozzarella Cheese
1 Cup – Marinara Sauce, heated

Instructions 

Start coals for cooking. While coals are still flaming, place a small cast iron skillet over fire. Add Olive Oil, Onion, Bell Pepper, and Garlic to iron skillet. Cook until vegetables are just soft, taking care not to burn yourself over open flame. Remove and set aside to cool for handling. In large bowl add vegetables, ground Pepperoni, ground sirloin, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and divide in 6 even portions. Flatted each portion to make a patty about ¼â€Â in thickness. Lightly oil burger holder for grill. Add patties and lock holder. When coals are white, add burgers. Cook 12 – 15 minutes then flip burgers and cook an additional 8 – 12 minutes. While burgers are cooking the last 12 minutes, add 2 small aluminum pots to grill. Place Marinara sauce in one, and butter in the other. Heat until butter is melted and slightly browned (about 5 minutes). Immediately brush Rolls with butter and place on grill for about 2 minutes or until slightly browned. Remove rolls and place 1 slice of Baby Swiss on one side and 1 slice of Mozzarella on the other. Remove patties and Marinara from grill. Place 1 patty on bottom portion of roll, top with 2 tablespoon of lightly heated marinara sauce and top portion of roll. Serve Immediately.
