Focaccia Pizza Burgers!

You know those nights that you just want to order pizza? Then you think that you really don't want to spend the money to buy them. Well, that was me a few nights ago. We had a ton of bills to pay this week and ordering pizza just wasn't a smart option.

So, I made Focaccia pizza burgers. I see Focaccia spelled this way and Foccia. I have no idea which is correct.

I had two loaves of focaccia bread so, I sliced them down the center. I thawed and cooked some hamburger. Added some tomato sauce and Italian herbs, garlic and mushrooms. Let it all simmer together.

Once that was finished I spread it on the focaccia bread and topped with chopped veggies I had and anything else that looked good. LOL I love sliced fresh tomatoes on pizza or anything grilled so, once I smothered the whole thing in mozzarella cheese, I topped with tomatoes and yellow pepper rings (I could just sit and eat a jar of yellow pepper rings!). I made two of these and then used the other two pieces just for a little cheesy bread.

For the cheesy bread I just brushed on olive oil,rubbed the bread down with a clove of garlic and sprinkled some Italian herbs. Topped with cheese and tomatoes.

Pretty quick, very filling and yummy! And as you can see, this was part of the meal we ate at the tablescape from yesterday's post.

The "heart" shape of the bread was a total accident. I just didn't slice very evenly. LOL

I am joining Foodie Friday even though this is so not a fancy recipe kind of dish. If you want to see some truly awesome food, check out all the folks joining this week's Foodie Friday!
