Ellio's Gourmet Pizza Burger

When you’ve got a craving for a few different dishes, it’s hard to pick just one. Well, now you don’t have to, because Ellio’s has a recipe for a tasty, toasty pizza burger that’s sure to satisfy your appetite for many different taste sensations. You don’t even need a grill for this masterpiece.

In this edition of Ellio’s Pizza Hacks, we’re taking your burger building experience to the next level by piling some gourmet ingredients on top of your Ellio’s Pizza bun. You can make smaller pizza burgers for the whole troop, or craft the perfect personal pizza burger.

Our goal is to keep the recipe simple, but you can add as many ingredients as you dare. We also mostly use store-brand ingredients, and the results are always tasty. You can make these with any of our pizzas, but we like to use varieties that have a 9-slice serving. Now, let’s get to flipping some patties!

What You’ll Need and Suggested Portions:
1 box of Ellio’s Pizza
½ - 1 pound of ground beef
½ of an avocado
1 slice of your favorite cheese
1 slice of onion
1 handful of mixed greens or other desired lettuce
1 drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
1 dash salt
1 dash pepper
1 dash garlic salt

How the Magic Happens:
1. Make your patty, season with salt, pepper, and a little garlic salt.
2. Set your stove top to medium heat, drizzle in extra virgin olive oil.
3. Allow patty to cook on one side for about 5-6 minutes and flip.
4. While the burger is cooking, slice your onion and avocado.
5. Allow the other side of the burger to cook for 3-4 minutes and top it with your cheese.
6. Toast your Ellio’s for about 12 minutes and cut in half.
7. Place your beautiful burger patty on one of the halves and begin to build.
8. Toss on a few raw, red onions.
9. Add a couple chunky pieces of avocado.
10. Add with mixed greens or lettuce of choice.
11. Top with the other half of your Ellio’s slice and smash.
12. Yum!

Time Travel with a Rad 80's Pizza Party

Some kids visualize hitting a 9th inning home run with the count full to win the World Series in walk off fashion. I longed to tend lovingly to the needs of my guests during a busy fall foliage season. That’s right, as a young boy growing up in the 80s, my life’s dream was to run a charming B&B.

I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night, and Eat Pizza Everyday - #80sPizzaParty

I love sharing all the cool aspects of my childhood with my son. The movies and music I watched/listened to are at the core of who I am, so it really makes me smile to see my son enjoy the same things I did as a little kid. That goes for Ellio’s too, because there is no better way to bond, or party, with someone than over some good food.

A Night At The Movies

Up until a few weeks ago, I had been making two dinners a night. I’d make one for the kids and simultaneously, one for my wife and me. We’d give the kids a bath, read stories and get them in bed. After they were zonked, she and I would sit down and revel in the opportunity to actually taste our food and carry on a conversation without the wildlings heaving food at us or instigating contests to see who could scream the loudest and longest.
