And what better way to celebrate, than with a PIZZA PARTY? But not any old pizza here! A few years ago "pizza burger" became all the rage when Boston Pizza introduced this tasty sensation to the American market. Pizza burger is a dough wrapped hamburger patty with fixin's. Burger King, Pizza Hut and even Dr Oetker cashed in this tasty treat! But guess what? It's not a new invention. The French masterminded this culinary masterpeice. They call it a "tourte" and it's covered savory tart. And tourte burger being a tart made with pizza dough and ground meat filling.
This is a pizza burger will delight big and small. I have seen around on few different blogs Feriel and Kaouther. I thought this an ingenious dish since it has the look and flavor of a giant Burger ... yet it is slightly more appealing to us more serious adults (ahem) ... that I would have no issue serving this to my family or even guests at a luncheon. It has the taste of summer. And with a good salad you can enjoy it throughout the year, because I assure you that once you try to find it you'll soon make it apart of youre répertoire.
I've used my All Purpose Dough here but you can easily use your favorite pizza dough. The filling again, easy peesey. I used bits and ends from my fridge to make this Algerian inspired Tourte Burger. You could easily switch it up and add your favorite regular burger fixin's to make (halal) Baconburger, Mushroomburger, BBQ chickenburger, Buffalo Chickenburger, Pestoburger, etc .... the skies the limit here! Come on! Let's get into it!
