How to Make Blackstone Pizza Burger Sliders

For smashed burgers you want to start with ground beef rolled into a ball.

I took a pound of ground beef, cut it into 12 pieces, and then rolled them.

Preheat the griddle to medium high for several minutes.

Then add some vegetable oil and put the ground beef onto the hot griddle.

Use a burger press or hibachi spatulas to flatten and smash them a few times.

Then season with kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.

Flip them after 2 to 3 minutes.

The gorgeous dark color and crust is what you get from smashing them…extra flavor and texture, my friends 🙂

And some shredded mozzarella and parsley.

Crushed red pepper flakes would be a great addition too for a little spicy kick.

adding cheese and parsley

While I waited for the cheese to melt, I toasted the slider buns on the griddle cut side down.

When the cheese is nice and melty, assemble the sliders on the buns.

I turned my griddle off and made them right on the Blackstone.

Equipment

  • Blackstone Griddle

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 36 slices pepperoni
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Optional: parsley, crushed red pepper flakes
  • 12 slider buns

Instructions
 

  • Cut a pound of ground beef into 12 pieces and roll each in a ball.
  • Preheat the griddle to medium high heat for several minutes. Once hot spread some vegetable oil and place the burgers on the griddle. Press very flat a few times with a burger press or hibachi spatula.

    Note: I put the slider buns on the griddle cut side down for a minute to warm and toast them slightly.
  • Use a melting dome if you have over and remove the burgers once the cheese is melted and serve on the slider buns.
