Pizza Burgers

A new take on burgers~ a little less oregano (or actual Italian seasoning) would make this delicious!  I’ve adapted the sauce recipe a bit to make it less spicy, since neither of us loved the original.  If you were in a hurry, you could just heat up a jar of pizza sauce, or make your version to get the exact taste you’re looking for.

Pizza Burgers

slightly adapted from Prevention RD


  • 1 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 2 tb olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp steak seasoning (I used A-1)
  • 1 1/2 tb Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tb dried Italian seasoning
  • 6 oz cheese- sliced mozzarella is recommended, but I only had shredded cheddar & it still worked
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes *undrained*
  • 3 tb tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning (optional, in my opinion)
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper


  • Heat 1 tb olive oil in a small skillet; saute onion until soft (about 5 minutes).
  • Combine ground beef, sauteed onion, steak seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and Italian seasoning in a large bowl.  Mix all together.
  • Divide mixture into 6 portions & shape into patties.  Cook over medium heat until done (4-5 minutes per side).
  • Meanwhile, heat the other tablespoon of olive oil in a medium saucepan.  Add garlic & cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato past, Italian seasoning (optional), sugar, salt, and pepper.  Cook until thickened, stirring frequently.  Keep warm.
  • When burgers are done, spoon sauce over burgers (on buns, if desired) & top with cheese.
