I can't believe there are people who have new heard of a pizza burger before, but it's true! It's on every pizzeria/sandwich shop's menu in the Philadelphia region, but there are even people in Philly who have never heard of it.
It's actually one of the easiest recipes I've ever made. Forming the patty is probably the most difficult part. It's kinda hard for me to explain in words how to do it. You just press the center and pull it while spinning. Keep tucking in the ends until it forms a tight patty.
Most people only flip a burger once. I flip it several times. It seems to make it less hard on the outside. After I uploaded the original video on YouTube 2 1/2 years ago, someone said to never press on a burger because it losses the juice. I do because I like it kinda dry, and it helps cook it quicker and more evenly. I don't like beef juice dripping on my roll.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
1/4 pound of ground beef (turkey or even bison works also)
