Total Time:

45 min.


  • 1 (13.8 oz.) pkg. refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 40 almond slices
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 Tbs. steak seasoning
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 4 lettuce leaves (optional)


  • Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray. On lightly floured surface, unroll pizza dough; cut into 8 rectangles. Place on baking sheet. On each rectangle, cut 4 slits 1½” apart and ⅓ of way across to form fingers.
  • Cut 4 (4”) squares foil; roll each into log. Place logs under 4 dough rectangles, separating fingers. In small bowl, combine parsley, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning and pepper; sprinkle over dough. Place 1 almond on each finger to form nails. Bake until golden, about 7 min.
  • Heat broiler. Mix beef, remaining Italian seasoning, steak seasoning and red onion; shape into 4 patties. Broil, flipping once, until 160°F in centers for medium, about 10 min. Top burgers with cheese, cook 1 min., or until cheese melts.  If desired, place lettuce leaves on 4 hand-shaped bun bottoms. Top with cheese burgers and remaining bun tops.
