What happens when two of the most ubiquitous, beloved meals of all time join forces? Pizza burgers, chefs! Topped with a simple, homemade tomato sauce, melted provolone cheese and fresh basil leaves, these gourmet, Italian-inspired patties are incredibly delicious. We’re serving them in sesame buns, and pairing them with roasted zucchini “fries,” flavored with garlic and Parmesan.

Pizza Burgers with Garlic-Parmesan Zucchini "Fries" ingredients
  • 1⅛ Pounds Ground Beef
  • 4 Sesame Seed Buns
  • 1 15-Ounce Can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 4 Slices Provolone Cheese
  • 3 Zucchini
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Bunch Basil
  • 1 Tablespoon Pizza Burger Spice Blend (Italian Seasoning & Garlic Powder)
  • ¼ Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the buns. Trim off and discard the ends of the zucchinis. Halve the zucchinis crosswise, then cut lengthwise into 1½-inch-wide wedges. Peel and mince the garlic. Peel and small dice the onion. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

2 Make the zucchini "fries":

Place the zucchini, garlic and half the Parmesan cheese on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to a serving dish, leaving the oven on.

Make the sauce:
3 Make the sauce:

While the zucchini roasts, in a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the onion and half the spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the crushed tomatoes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly reduced in volume.

Form the patties:
4 Form the patties:

While the sauce simmers, in a large bowl, combine the ground beef and remaining Parmesan cheese and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Using your hands, form the mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties.

Cook the patties:
5 Cook the patties:

While the sauce continues to simmer, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and cook 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

6 Finish the burgers & serve your dish:

Place the buns on a sheet pan, cut sides up. Place a cooked patty onto each bun bottom. Top each patty with a few spoonfuls of the sauce and a slice of provolone cheese. Bake 1 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the bun tops are lightly toasted. Transfer to a serving dish. Top each burger with a spoonful of the remaining sauce, a few of the basil leaves (reserve the rest for garnish) and a toasted bun top. Garnish the zucchini fries with the lemon wedges and remaining basil. Serve with any remaining sauce on the side. Enjoy!
