Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 1 pound ground pork

  • 1 ½ cups dried bread crumbs

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons Italian-style seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon dried sage

  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • ¾ cup pizza sauce

  • 2 cups chopped stewed tomatoes

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mushrooms

  • ¼ (2 ounce) can chopped black olives, drained

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced pepperoni sausage

  • 12 slices mozzarella cheese

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, eggs, onion, green bell pepper, salt, ground black pepper, Italian-style seasoning, sage, garlic powder, 1/2 cup pizza sauce and stewed tomatoes. Mix well and form into 24 patties using a 1/4 cup measuring cup OR an ice cream scoop.

  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the mushrooms and olives and set aside. Arrange 12 patties on 2 ungreased baking sheets. Place 4 slices of pepperoni on each patty, then a small amount of the mushroom olive mixture, and then a slice of mozzarella cheese. Top each patty off with another patty and pinch the edges all around to seal everything into the middle. Finally, top each with a drizzle of remaining pizza sauce and some shredded mozzarella cheese.

  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes.
