5. Put the bread slices on the broiler pan and toast under broiler until browned. Turn to brown both sides.
6. Meanwhile, pour the pasta sauce into a small saucepan and heat over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot and bubbly and reduces somewhat.

9. Serve open-face style.

Makes 4 servings


Use a very good pasta sauce for the tastiest pizza burger. I like to use one that is rich with mushrooms. For a little flavor boost, sprinkle on a little more oregano or basil. You may even want to add a sprinkle of powdered garlic.

Be sure to simmer the pasta sauce long enough for it to reduce a bit and get thicker. That intensifies the flavor as well as keeps it on the burger, rather than sliding off. You don't want the sauce too runny.
