TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: Pizza lovers will enjoy this burger

My boys always enjoyed pizza burgers. I bought a box one time.

That cost was too much for me. So I thought I can do this; I had forgotten how I made this. Well some of the grandkids were wanting to know how to do it.

The Holy Cross Church in Illinois had a recipe almost like mine. It’s not hard to make.

Everyone likes pizza. You can take this recipe and make for 1 or 2 or a larger crowd. Just make adjustments. Enjoy.
