Ingredients

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.

Topping:

  • 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
  • garlic cloves minced
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons  ketchup
  • 1 small onion finely chopped.

Instructions

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 pizza(s):

    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.
    • Enjoy!!

    Notes

    *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.
