Pizza Burgers

pizza-burgers

Holy cow, I’ve been meaning to share this recipe all summer…oops! Summer somehow slipped by me, though we’ve technically got a couple more weeks. As much as I like fall, I enjoy summer more and I’m not ready to move into the next season yet. We kinda had a weird summer here anyway, so it doesn’t feel like it should be over yet. Since we’re down to our last couple weeks of official summer though, it’s not too late to share a burger recipe, right? Really, I’ll eat a burger any time of year, so I think it’s okay.

Anyway, as you may recall, this year has been a huge transition for me, and it continues to be. That’s definitely been the priority, so my poor little blog has been on the back-burner, but it still lives on and so do I!

Cheers and enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 lb grass-fed ground beef (I used 15%)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 15 oz can no-sugar added pizza sauce (I used this one)
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese, preferably grass-fed
  • 4 slices Applegate pepperoni (large size)
  • Sprinkle of fresh-grated high-quality Parmesan cheese, if desired
  • Mixed greens and veggies of choice, for serving

Directions:

  1. Preheat grill for burgers. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together ground beef, Italian seasoning, sea salt and pepper. Form into two even sized patties.
  2. Once grill is hot, throw on the burgers. Cook to your preference. We usually do about 3.5 minutes each side for medium-rare. Once done, remove from grill.
  3. Warm up a little bit of the pizza sauce on the stove or in the microwave and spread a layer of sauce on top of each patty. Add the cheese and pepperoni to each. Dollop a little more sauce on top and garnish with Parmesan cheese, if using.
  4. Place burgers on top of a bed of mixed greens or veggies of choice for serving.

Yields: 2 servings

    Looks great without cheese.

      If you don’t tolerate or like cheese, definitely forgo it! You could add some sliced sautéed mushrooms and anything else you like instead. I can handle highly-fermented dairy, which is why I went with a sharp cheddar, but cheeses like mozzarella are out of the question for me.

    I’m new to SCD and I saw that canned tomatoes are “illegal,” but some people also say that’s just an old rule that doesn’t need to be followed. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

      I don’t need to strictly adhere to all the aspects of the SCD anymore, so do eat canned tomatoes sometimes (I always make sure there’s no sugar added and that it’s a BPA-free can though). I’ve still heard of practitioners recommending to avoid canned tomatoes when adhering to the SCD, and hadn’t heard that it was an old rule. It could be though…I don’t really know. I avoided canned tomatoes strictly for a long time and when I needed a tomato product, I bought the Pomi brand, which comes in a box. I’d also buy the Bionaturae brand sometimes, which comes in glass. So, whether you choose to follow this “rule” or not, there are alternatives. Not sure how much that helped, but that’s what I got!
