Italian Pizza Burgers

Delicious flavors of pizza with a dash of red wine all in between two burger buns!

I have made a couple different pizza burgers and typically they all use a mix of sausage and beef. I personally can be kind of picky with my burgers. I don't mind a mix every so often, but a majority of the time I like just beef. I also used to really enjoy a bunch of different things in my burger mix and then now I prefer salt and pepper - leaving the variation up to the toppings on the burger. I was a little skeptical of this burger because, even though it was just beef, there was a variety of spices plus wine to add to the beef mix. I wasn't really really worried because I love the ingredients that I saw, but still...I'm always unsure of how I'll like a burger with pizzazz.

I ended up loving this burger so much! The spices were very Italian/pizza/spaghetti seasonings and I figured I would end up being fine with them. The wine added a nice flavor to the beef and overall composition of the burger. I think it would have been strange to not have that richness from the wine. Of course, I loved the gooey mozzarella and sauteed onions and peppers. I'm going to be happy with most any dish if it has sauteed veggies!
