1 red pepper ( sliced )
1 yellow pepper ( sliced )

Method:Pepperoni Pizza Burgers
Form 6 hamburger patties in an oblong shape to fit the rolls. An easy way to get all of your patties the same size is to start by breaking up your meat into 6 balls all the same size. After the patties are formed season them with salt and pepper.
In a large 14 inch skillet start to cook 3 of the patties on medium high heat ( use 2 skillets to cook them all at the same time ). They will take about 4 or 5 minutes a side. After you flip them to cook the second side add 1/2 of your onion, green, yellow and red peppers to the skillet and saute in the burger drippings, they should be done the same time the patties are done. Add slices of mozzarella cheese to the tops of the patties, turn off heat and cover to melt cheese.
While the burgers are cooking slice your french rolls in half and place on a baking sheet. Spread the marinara sauce on the top and bottom of your rolls ( enough to coat ). Add sliced mozzarella to the bottom buns only and cover cheese with the sliced pepperoni. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 5-7 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Note: If you time it right, everything will be done at the same time.
When your rolls come out of the oven place your patties onto the bottom buns and cover with the sauteed peppers and onions. Place top bun on and your ready to eat. Cut in half if desired. Great with french fries and a salad.
