I can’t take credit for this idea, as it was concocted and made real by my friends Josh and Dustin. A party was planned, and the food item that became its centerpiece is still talked about today. It was the pizzaburger: two Totino’s pizzas, a pack of cheese slices and a lot of ground beef. I feel lucky to have taken part in demolishing it, but after the jump are some pictures so you can live vicariously through our gastronomical dreams.
First, the meat. If I remember correctly it was in the 5-6 pound range. Not easy to handle on the grill.
This is Josh. Look how happy a person can be when their seemingly impossible dream comes to fruition. We almost lost the patty in pieces when it was flipped (with a cutting board).
Once flipped, around a dozen cheese slices were peeled from the plastic and set on top of the burger to melt.
I don’t have any action shots of the creation of the actual burger, but it was pretty simple. We baked two Totino’s four meat pizzas (pepperoni, bacon, sausage) and placed one on the serving tray. With the cheeseburger placed on top, it was crowned like a king with the second pizza. Dustin looks relieved and ridiculously hungry.
