A note about serious food allergies

A classic dilemma: do you want the gooey cheese and tomato sauce nirvana of a slice of pizza pie, or a juicy cheeseburger with pickles and the fixings? Well, you can tell by the title what we've done here: put the burger on the pizza, and resolved the dilemma for good. Ground beef and cheese, topped with pickles, tomatoes, arugula, and drizzled with tangy dressing. Just call us the peacemakers. Tip: To remove the core of a tomato, carefully cut a shallow circle around the stem with a small knife, then remove circle.
