My kids are crazy about pizza. So anyway I can serve it that's not the same old same old is a great thing! Like this twist on a classic, they can't get enough of this messy burger. Top it with your favorite pizza toppings like olives, green peppers, or even mushrooms.
Sloppy Pizza Joes
1 lb. ground beef or Italian sausage, castings removed
1/2 cup pepperoni, diced or quartered
2 Tablespoons Italian seasonings (omit if using pizza sauce)
1/2 medium onion, chopped
15 oz. tomato sauce or pizza sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 oz can mushrooms, drained (opt)
6-8 buns, split and toasted
2 cups mozzarella, grated
*In a large skillet over medium heat, cook onions and meat until meat is brown and onions are soft. Then add pepperoni and garlic cook for additional 1-2 mins or until pepperoni starts to warm up. Drain and add sauce, Italian seasonings, and mushrooms or additional toppings. Cook for 5 minutes or until heated. To serve, top mixture on buns and cover with grated cheese.
