Recipe

Pizza and a burger in one? I'm there. One of my favorite store bought veggie burgers is a pizza inspired burger with mozzarella cheese and tomatoes, so I wanted to recreate the same thing at home. There are Italian spices, red pepper, green pepper, and sweet onion in the spices and then it is topped with marinara and cheese. Yum.
