For this recipe I divided the meat into 3 pizza burger patties and 3 BBQ cheddar patties but you can do all of one kind. So to do all of one kind (ie. 6 patties) use 1 1/2 lbs of beef. Otherwise use 3/4 lb to make 3 of each kind.
Pizza Burgers - 3 patties (4 if you make small patties)
3/4 lb. ground beef (don't use super lean or they get too dry)
Salt and black pepper to taste
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 - 1/2 tsp of oregano
small can of tomato sauce/pizza sauce
2-4 oz small pepperoni, cut into small bits (you could use browned Italian sausage, onions, mushrooms, or any pizza topping you like - just don't put too much or it will squish out)
4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
3 - 4 hamburger buns
Season beef with seasonings. Shape into patty with shallow well in middle of patty for the fillings. Spread small amount of sauce onto patty then add small amt. of toppings. Take a small amount of beef and place over filling and seal edges. Then place into freezer bags and freeze.
On day of cooking, thaw patties completely. Then you can grill, pan fry, or broil then to your desired doneness. Just remember not to flatten them with a spatula or the filling will ooze out!

chili powder to taste (I used about 1-2 tbsp of dark chili powder)
