"The elementary school I attended back in the 1950's used to make these, and were a favorite of most everyone. My wife and I spent a lot of time trying to recreate these when we were first married. Our kids (now in their 30's) still request these when they come to visit. We use canned pizza sauce but spice it up. Left-overs are easily reheated in the toaster oven."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Very similar to what my Mom used to call "Little Pizzas", but she used toasted English Muffins for the base. She would sometimes add chopped mushrooms to the ground beef/tomato mixture.
This was good, but I guess I was expecting more from it. Perhaps my memories of this dish as a child overshadowed the reality of what it is. I still would make it again, and I do believe children would love it.
Next time I would half the recipe, as we had a lot of leftovers. Each adult only ate 2 of them (1 whole bun worth).
Very good easy recipe!! My kids add assorted veggies and cheeses to personalize theirs. Thanks for posting!
Made an error on submitting. Should have been 1/3 C of chopped onion.
Have been making these for years and now making them for my children who love their own pizza plus they can add what they like and leave off what they dont. The burger buns adds a little sweet kick thats yummy!!!
The only changes I made was to use Don Peppinos spaghetti sauce because that's what I had, I doubled the recipe and added some chopped pepperoni and my son used pepper jack cheese because he likes it spicy. Very good! Thanks for sharing. Will definitely make agin!
Quick, easy, and good.
This was one our most favorite school lunches when the schools had lunch ladies that actually prepared hot meals! I just made them yesterday and they are a huge hit! I did not use paprika in my recipe, that's the only thing that was different.
