Burger Pizza

Burgers or Hamburgers is a kind of sandwich consisting one or more of the cooked patties made of ground meat (usually) inside a bun. If I am right this burger originated in Germany and then spread to other countries. Now a days we of course have vegetarian versions of this burger with the patties usually made of potatoes and shallow fried.


Today's post I am terming this as burger pizza since it doesn't contain a patty and I baked it with cheese added to it. I haven't heard of burgers with cheese. So hopefully my readers will accept this as a form of pizza. It tasted pretty similar to pizza since I had added pizza sause as well as all the Italian toppings and ofcourse with paneer. I also used cheese singles instead of the normal pizza cheese so that it goes well with the form of burger.


Ingredients:

Burger Bun - 2
Cheese singles - 2
Pizza sauce - 2 tbsp
Cut vegetables (raw) - 1 cup (I used slices of tomatoes, onions and cucumbers)
Grated paneer - 1/2 cup
Chopped mushrooms - 1/2 cup
Chopped green peppers (capsicum) - 1/2 cup
Chopped onions - 1/4 cup
Italian seasoning - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp


Method:

  • In a non-stick cookware add the oil and the chopped mushroom, onions and green peppers
  • Add needed salt and stir fry in low flame until water oozes out of the mushrooms and the veggies are half cooked. 
  • Add the grated paneer, pepper powder and half the amount of Italian seasoning. Mix well and allow it to cool.
  • Cover a baking tray with aluminium foil. Pre-heat the oven at 160 degree centigrade.
  • Cut the burger buns into halves. Place the bottom half in the baking tray.
  • Apply pizza sauce in the sliced buns.
  • Place a layer of the raw vegetables.
  • Make a ball or patty of the paneer mix and place it on top of the raw vegetables.
  • Place the cheese singles on top of the paneer and sprinkle the remaining italian seasoning.
  • Lastly place the top half of the burger buns and decorate as per your taste.
  • I placed a small piece of tomato and held it in position with a tooth pick.
  • Bake in the oven for about 6-8 minutes.


Enjoy your burger-pizzas hot!!



Notes:

  • I baked only for about 7 minutes since I didn't want the cheese to gooey. You can bakes for few minutes more if you would like the cheese to melt.
  • You can replace the cheese singles with usual pizza cheese.
