reporting back

I made the mediterranean humus pizza last week. it was really good- different than what i expected, but really tasty all the same. i also made Aunt jan's Magic Marinade too. eric grilled it outside and it was delicious! and, i finally tried your mexican rice recipe and it was good. i still like the other one better though- it seems more compact or more tomatoey or something. but your recipe was quick and tasted just like restaurant mex rice!
tonight we are trying something new. not sure how it will go but here's the recipe:

Grilled Stuffed Pizza Burgers

2 lb ground beef/turkey
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup chopped pepperoni
2 tbspn sliced ripe olives
1/2 cup pizza sauce
6 slices mozz cheese, cut in half diagonally
6 burger buns
6 leaves lettuce

1. heat grill. in large bowl, mix ground beef and salt. shape mixure into 12 thin patties, each aabout 4 inches in diamter

2. in small bowl, mix pepperoni, olives and 1/3 cup pizza sauce. spoon rounded tbspn pepperoni mixture onto center of 6 patties, spread slightly. top with remaining patties, press edges together firmly to seal.

3. place patties on grill. cover grill and cook over medium heat 8-12 minutes, turning once untnil done. during last 1-2 minutes of cooking time top each patty with cheese and rounded teaspoon of remaining pizza sauce and place buns, cut side down, on grill. cook until cheese is melted and buns toasted.

4. to serve place lettuce and patties on bottom halves of buns. cover with top halves (this is a silly step, why do they need to include that?!)

sounds like it could be really good.
