Pizza Stuffed Hamburgers

My husband is a burger fan and when I first started changing our diet I thought that we were going to have to cut them out. But then I found that you can purchase ground beef at the same fat percentage as low fat turkey: 93% fat free. Yes beef has a few more calories, but my husband prefers the taste over turkey. He hasn’t even noticed that we switched to the low fat version of ground beef.

Now the one thing I am having a hard time switching to is turkey pepperoni, but I have just decided he will have to suffer! I can’t taste a difference and the difference in calories is huge.

Pizza Stuffed Hamburgers

Since it is grilling season I decided I had to make a great stuffed burger. I had some pepperoni I wanted to use up in the fridge and realized what a great combo – burgers and pizza.
