I have used all sorts of things for pizza crust: pitas, flour and corn tortillas, English muffins, biscuits, but it never occurred to me to use Hamburger buns! These turned out so so good!

Homemade Pizza Sauce (I have succesfully canned this recipe using a water bath. See how I did it here.)
- 1 14 1/2 oz can of crushed tomatoes
- 1/8 cup of water
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 1/2 tsp of sugar
- 1 tsp of garlic powder
- 1 tsp of onion powder
- 1 tsp of dried basil
- 1 tsp of dried oregano
Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan or skillet and saute on medium until sauce begins to bubble. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
- Gather your favorite pizza ingredients. (I used a mixture of Mozzarella and Colby Jack cheeses, pepperoni and the hamburger buns.)
- Using a rolling pin, flatten out the hamburger buns as best you can, like this:
