Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time2 hrs
Total Time1 hr 15 mins
Servings: 8 people
For each pizza top(this is just foe one top):
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour.
- 1/2 teaspoon dry yeast.
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Za’atar.
- A dash of salt.
- **1/4 cup +1 Tablespoon warm water.
- 4 Tablespoon grated cheese any type you prefer.
- 3 Tablespoons pizza sauce.
- 5 slices of pepperoni.
- 2 black olives halved.
For each pizza bottom( this is just for one):
- The same dough as the top part without topping just add some pizza sauce and cheese
For the Burgers (ingredients for 4 patties):
- 3lb ground beef
- 3 Large eggs.
- 1 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1-1/2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 Tablespoons ketchup
- 1 small onion finely chopped.
Make the burger:
In a deep bowl combine the ingredients of the burger and mix well without over mixing.
Divide mixture into 4, and shape it gently so you’ll have 4 big burgers. Set aside.
Make the upper pizza.
In a bowl, combine flour, Za’atar, baking powder, sugar, salt and yeast. Mix the dry ingredients well together.
Add water and mix well.
Wipe an 8 inch skillet with a kitchen towel that has some oil in it. Pour the pizza mixture, top with sauce then half the cheese, pepperoni, olives then the rest of the cheese.
Cover the skillet tightly with aluminum foil and turn the stove to medium-low keeping it there covered for 5 minutes then reduce heat to low and make a small opening in the foil to release vapor. Keep it on low for another 5 minutes.
Make the lower crust by following the same directions as the upper crust without all the toppings, I just added cheese.
For the lower crust I cooked it for 4 minutes covered and another 3-4 minutes on low with the vapor release opening.
While the pizza is cooking, shape your patties using a similar sized skillet. Grill them, cook in the oven or stove top. I cooked mine in a 400F oven for 20 minutes.
For the assembly, put the bottom crust first then burger, add whatever burger topping you want then top with the upper pizza crust.****
Cut into halves or quarters for easy handling.
*For each burger you’ll need a top and a bottom, that’s a total of 4 tops and 4 bottoms.
** For my flour when I added 1/3 cup of warm water it was too runny and was too thick when only a 1/4 cup was added. So start with a 1/4 cup and try to reach the consistency as shown above by adding 1 Tablespoons water at a time.
*** Toppings are your choice but do not go overboard with it.
**** For sanity purposes, I did not add our usual burger toppings i.e. lettuce, tomato and red onion slices. These would have slipped very easily from the little hands I have at home. So feel free to add whatever burger sauces or toppings you like.
