Whenever we have hamburgers for dinner, we always have a couple of buns left over. (Even though I make 8 burgers…  I just can’t figure out what happens to the missing burgers, lol!)  Does this ever happen to you?

One of my favorite (and tasty) ways to use those leftover buns is with these Hamburger Bun Mini Pizzas.

I’ve used all sorts of things for pizza crust: pita bread, flour and corn tortillas, English muffins, biscuits, but our very favorite base for mini pizzas are Hamburger buns!

I think it is something about the white bread of a hamburger bun that toasts up so crisp and brown that makes these turn out so so good!  My trick to getting the buns so flat and crispy is to roll them out flat with a rolling pin before adding the sauce.
