Servings 4


  • 1 Lb Ground Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
  • 1 Lb Ground Italian Sausage
  • 4 Hamburger Buns
  • Marinara Sauce
  • 4 Slices Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Parmesan Cheese optional
  • Butter
  • Pizza Seasoning


  • Get your grill/pan/etc hot for the burgers.
  • Mix ground beef, Italian sausage, and pizza seasoning (oregano, basil, marjoram, garlic) together. Divide into 8oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6oz portions). Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.
  • Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.
  • Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.
  • While burgers are grilling, heat marinara sauce in a pan on med-low heat until warm. Heat pepperoni on a pan or on tinfoil on the grill for a couple minutes.
  • Flip burgers and cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes. Top burger with sliced cheese about a minute before taking off the grill.
  • Place buns face down on the grill for a minute or two to toast.
  • Add burgers to buns, spoon on marinara, add pepperoni & sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
