What happens when you combine 2 of Americas favorite foods? Pizza Burgers happen. It's a pizza-hamburger fusion explosion. (Oh yea, I just said that.)
Unfortunately, this recipe didn't go over like I had expected though. Courtney definitely didn't share my excitement over this hamburger fusion. Despite my pizza burger sales pitch, she wasn't on board with the whole pizza and burger-in one concept. Teenagers - what can you do?
Don't let the fact that Courtney wasn't willing to even try the pizza burger, discourage YOU from trying it. Ben and I thought they were delicious. A perfect Friday night meal.
