The best thing about these Italian Sausage Pizza Burgers (besides the taste), is that you can top them with all your favorite ingredients, just as you would your favorite pizza.

For ours, I topped them with some grilled green peppers and onions, but think about adding pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms, and anchovies! Well, maybe we’d better stop at mushrooms! LOL
