Pizza In A Burger

How could I have forgotten this recipe! It truly was one of the first things I learned to cook. This is so easy and good. A really nice change from a plain old burger. Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, 1968, can you believe!

print recipe

" 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped pitted olives
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt
dash black pepper
4 slices, mozzarella cheese, cut in strips
8 cherry tomatoes; halved
8 slices French bread, toasted

Combine first 8 ingredients; shape into 8 patties. Broil over medium coals 10 minutes. Turn; top each with cheese and tomatoes. Broil 5 minutes or until desired doneness. Serve on toasted French Bread."

Cooks Note: I now use fresh mozzarella and a whole slice of tomato. I also brush the french bread with olive oil and toast on the grill.
