Pizza burgers are a very very kid friendly recipe. When my kiddos saw me making these, they were going crazy over it. I hardly managed to be done with the photos. Although I gave them some to nibble on while keeping the rest for the shots, they kept hovering over what I have wanting more!!
Saucy ground meat, pepperoni slices, loads of melted cheese all sandwiched between their favorite buns, how can they resist? I know it is hard😅. I’ve made this a couple of times already and they were devoured every time. I am sure I will be doing more of these especially that the soccer season is about to start and when this crazy season is here we are always running around
