"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."

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.
Very good easy recipe!! My kids add assorted veggies and cheeses to personalize theirs. Thanks for posting!
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.
These were great!! I made two buns for everyone in my family and I though maybe that wouldn't be enough, but they are very filling. Delicioius!
I didn't think it was necessary to add all these extra spices, but the flavor they add is very good. Only used a little crushed red pepper, personal preference. Toasting the buns ahead of time is a good idea, too.
