Pizza Burgers

If you asked any one of my elementary or high school friends what their favorite lunch at school was, chances are, they'd all answer pizza burgers. In fact, I might actually go ask them on Facebook because I think it would be fun to see if I'm right. But anyway, pizza burgers. They were amazing. And you got them with applesauce, green beans, and chocolate cake.

Sometime after college I tried making my own and they were pretty good. I've perfected it now. These aren't quite the same because, as my mom so helpfully pointed out, they have mozzarella, not American cheese. So, not authentic, but I think they taste better.

Every once in a while, we still get the real thing if the school cafeteria has tons leftover. My mom leaves them in the freezer until we're all home and then we get a delicious trip down memory lane.
