When I saw the Pizza Burger at Maxim’s I knew it was something I had to try. Looked to be a 1/2 patty sandwiched between pieces of pizza, what could go wrong? Of course if I was going to try it the “optional” sweet peppers were a must.
So one day when the guys were headed to Maxim’s for lunch I asked them to pick me up a “Pizza Burger”. Now I like Maxim’s and have had many good lunches from there, but this was not quite what I expected. The term “burger” was used quite loosely as the sandwich contained no beef. Rather than a hamburger patty it was a 1/2 of sausage between 2 slices of pizza. Now this may be fine for some, and quite excellent for others, but for me it was a disappointment. I was lured in by the thought of a juicy burger, covered with Italian sweet peppers and instead I got a glorified sausage patty.
I fully realize the fault is mine for not asking. Had I asked I would have ordered their amazing Meatball Sub. Now THAT is a sandwich, but unfortunately a matter for a future posting.
