Fried Pizza Burger

Remember those English muffin pizzas you made as a kid? Now add a cheeseburger patty and toss it in the fryer.


  • Hamburger patty:
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 ounces ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pizza:
  • 1 English muffin
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 mozzarella cheese ball, cut into 4 slices
  • 2 leaves fresh basil
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese
  • For deep-frying:
  • Tempura batter
  • Fine breadcrumbs
  • Frying oil


  1. In a bowl, combine hamburger patty ingredients and cook over medium heat until done.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Open the English muffin. Top each half with tomato sauce and mozzarella. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  4. Preheat a small pot of oil to 340 degrees.
  5. Remove English muffins from oven, and top each piece with fresh basil. Top one piece with the hamburger patty and slice of cheddar. Combine into a sandwich.
  6. Dip the sandwich into the tempura batter, followed by breadcrumbs. Fry in oil until brown and crispy on all sides. Enjoy.
