I'm not a professional cook by any means.I just play one at home.

What comes to mind is
Onion Rolls,can be made ahead of time,and toasted when you need them.

Jazz up the tomatoes with some Italian Seasonings.Checca? Diced tomatoes with fresh garlic,basil,olive oil,sea salt.Tomatoes are in season and relatively cheap to get right now.

Play with the mayo,add a little garlic paste and blend,with some freshly diced Sweet Red Bell Peppers.Those to are in season.

Instead of Mozzarella,how about Provolone,Monterey Jack..

Good luck.

Munky.

By all means. I know that even regular aged prov gives off a very strong flavor when melted that may be off-putting to someone expecting their burger to taste like a pizza. I'd still say go with a combo of mozz and parm.

I agree! Getting away from Mozzarella and/or Parmesan cheese takes it away from being a pizza burger... unless you're from California. (I can say that! I lived there for 25 years! - ugh!)

Wow!!! Thank you all SO much! I'm going to print this thread and try these ideas. It sounds like fennel seed might be what it was missing most. The bun definitely needs a rethinking. I also like the idea of fresh spinach or other greens on there. There was a definite texture issue - not enough. And yes, I know it may sound like an unusual idea, but that is kinda what I am going for. Our place won't really serve more than burgers, hot dogs and chicken wings..there will be more, but those are the staples. So instead of pizza and nachoes, I thought a pizza burger and nacho burger were in order! Thanks again :)

Funny thing is, I'm not an olive guy, but I mentioned that exact idea (plus a bit of tzatziki) to my wife about a week ago and she said it didn't sound good, so I dropped the idea. I was having a family birthday BBQ at my house last Sunday. I made two different kinds of stuffed burgers (bacon/cheddar and swiss/mushroom) and I wanted a 3rd option for the guests. I thought the Greek burger sounded like a good idea too, but she didn't. I went with the aforementioned nacho burger as the third instead. So, it does sound good then? It would be like a gyro burger.

It depends on your clientele. You could always do a "special" and see if the customers bite... pun intended!!
Bleu cheese and bacon is a good combo, too.

haha! I like puns almost as much as I like cooking...nah, even moreso. I like the bleu cheese idea though! A buffalo(as in wing sauce, not the animal) burger with bleu cheese! I am SO glad I found this place a few days ago...I'm never leaving!

Toss some bleu cheese, chopped celery in some hot sauce and stuff the burger!
