As prepared by S Caron,

These aren’t your ordinary burgers.


They’re unexpected and exciting. Something special for a backyard barbecue or Sunday dinner. When you serve them, they draw a ‘Wow.’ Good stuff!

Take one juicy beef burger and cook it to your favorite doneness, then add the toppings for one delicious Margherita Pizza. The result? An amazing burger that’s part pizza, part summer classic.

Margherita Pizza Burger recipe

And don’t worry…this Margherita Pizza Burger recipe is easy to make too. Easy is good!

I made these with Muir Glen’s special 2011 Reserve Tomatoes and Muir Glen Pizza Sauce. The Reserve Tomatoes are sweet bits of amazing freshness – the freshest tomatoes I have ever gotten out of a can. A-mazing. I highly recommend them. But if for some reason you don’t use them, you can also use Muir Glen’s No-Salt Diced Tomatoes.

Use fresh mozzarella on these. It softens nicely in the heat in just a few minutes and adds nice fresh dairy flavor.

Oh, and a pile of basil. Yes, a pile! It ended up being the favorite part of this burger when I served it.
