My “Leftover Pizza” Dilemma!
We’ve all had to face this: a few leftover slices of pizza: delicious and worth savoring again, but I also had other plans that day for lunch – I had fresh hamburger…and a light bulb went off:
So here’s what went down: I took these two slices of leftover pizza and combined them with some fresh hamburger, which I molded into the shape of a slice!
I seasoned it with salt and pepper only – no diced onion or garlic, which I would normally do – because today the “buns” would come packed with flavor!
I always cook my hamburger medium rare: I love the juice that runs out while I eat, and in this case the “buns” will more than soak it in – and speaking of those buns, I took off the outer crust, added a bit of fresh shredded Mozzarella to the burger patty and then this happened:
Behold The “Leftover Pizza Burger!”
There you have it: a mouthful of juicy burger, “buns” filled with red sauce, cheese, sausage and black olives!
And The Taste?
Well, how could it go wrong! It was delicious of course, because pizza is always delicious, and the juiciness of the hamburger just helped bring it all together in a fresh way!
Of course, this was much more than I could handle, so my wife Alex, along with friends Kareen and Chris each took a chunk and dug in as well and it was unanimous!
I’m always open to a “mashup” of disparate food item, like the fun combo I tried once: avocado, egg and bacon!

I also recently shared once again my favorite burger mashup of all time – the “French Fry Burger!”
Trust me, it’s incredible!
