Pepperoni Pizza Burgers

Take your homemade burgers to the next level with these juicy beef burgers topped with tomato sauce, cheese and slices of pepperoni.
Active Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes
Servings: 4 burgers


  • 500 g beef mince - 10%+ fat - anything less than 10% fat tends to give a less juicy burger
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • 100 g grated cheddar cheese
  • 20 g small pepperoni slices - you can cut up large slices if you can't find the small ones in the shops - that's what I did!


  • Pre-heat your oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan.
  • Grate your cheese (100g)
  • Divide your beef mince (500g) into 4 equal sized pieces. Form one piece into a burger shape using your hands.
  • Make a well in the centre of the burger using the bottom of a glass or your hands. If there are any little cracks/splits in the sides give them a gentle squeeze to join them back up again.
  • Add ½ tsp tomato puree and ¼ tsp dried oregano and spread it into the well in the burger using the back of a spoon.
  • Sprinkle in ¼ of your grated cheese (25g) and then top with slices of pepperoni.
  • Repeat steps 3-6 until you've made all 4 burgers.
  • Place the burgers onto a grill rack (or a cooling rack in a baking tray if you don't have a grill rack) and then cook for 13 minutes until the burger is piping hot all of the way through.
  • Serve.
