Pizza Burgers

Are you like me and ALWAYS looking for an easy week night meal the kids will actually eat? This is one that does well around here. What kid does not  like pizza? Ok, well there are probably a few, I have one that does not like hot dogs, but typically pizza is a safe bet.

This meal honestly takes 20 min or less to make. I can start the meat, put a kid in the shower, drain the meat and add sauce, second kid in shower, brown bread, and have kids at the table! Whew! Easy-peasy.

When making this be sure to add enough sauce to your meat. If you use more then a pound of meat add a second cup of sauce. These are very similar to sloppy joes but with a whole different flavor!
