JoAnnes Pizza Burgers

If you have ever had teenage boys in the house you will know that they like to create and eat food that perhaps isn’t exactly appealing to everyone.  I’ve seen creations like ketchup potato chips and pickles in a grilled cheese sandwich.  2 slices of pizza put together like a sandwich stuffed with a slab of ham left over from Easter dinner and mac and cheese tacos to name just a few interesting combinations.  This Pizza Burger recipe is one creation that I actually thought wasn’t too bad of an idea.  If you love pizza and hamburgers, you can’t not love this recipe.
