All depends on the quality of the item! I have had great pizza that was so good and burgers too! Just depends!

What about a Pizzaburger? One of my favorite subs is a pizza burger sub. I think Burger subs in general are under appreciated.

But a good pizza beats a good burger for me.

I don't like big buns and I cannot lie.

My complaint with burgers is that there is always just too much bun, though I've only had veggie burgers. I've tried Impossible Burgers at expensive restaurants that featured well-respected chefs, at Red Robin, and even at Burger King, which I had only previously been to for the restaurant's public restrooms in Paris. All had too much bun, but some of the restaurants put on some nice toppings.





PIZZA WINS!!!

Pizza. One is a great food and one is classless, meaningless, disrespectful, arrogant, overrated, pretentious, grotesque, and childish... Yum. :p

Why not both? Go to Ruthie's BBQ in Montclair NJ, where in addition to first class smoked meats the chef does a sensational brisket burger and a half dozen or so superb pizzas.

Pizza allows for more creativity and generally speaking better and more interesting ingredients.

A homemade healthy version of both can work well. If I'm going pizza it's either something basic like a garlic, margarita or Mediterranean with lots of salad as well.
For a hamburger it's whole grain buns with lots of lettuce, tomato, onions and beetroot with lean beef and a little sauce and I'm good to go.
These meals can be healthy if done right.

I've heard it's common to put beetroots on hamburgers in Australia. I have never seen this in the U.S. or Europe. Are beets on burgers the norm in Australia? I happen to love beets.

Yes in the past the local fish n chip shop would do this for you. It's nice actually. Back in the 60's when the Greeks and Italians immigrated here, many opened these corner stores and they were great. You could just walk up and buy what you needed, I miss these days. Bring back the convenience of the corner shop.

Margarita pizzas are good :) Spinach pizzas with light sauce also :)

It used to be pizza for me when I lived across the street from a pizzeria. I've always enjoyed a good burger, but the pull of the pizza was just too much. Nowadays, burger, hands down.

PIZZA!

Just bought a pan for making deep dish pizza. . . and I'm an intermediate level pro at making Chicago Pizza. Good at Detroit; so-so with New York; tough dough there.

This place sounds AMAZING. Never heard of it, but like 20 minutes from me. Going on my short list for sure.

If you think it about they are both mainly bread, but a burger is also mainly meat, so the meat can hide a lot of bad baking whereas a pizza can't.

On the other hand, Turkish pizza comes with mince so you get the best of both worlds, if you like the spices.

Burger King to sell plant-based Impossible Whopper across the US
  • Move follows successful limited rollout in six regions
  • Demand for burgers, also sold by White Castle, outpacing supply

Burger King will begin selling the plant-based Impossible Whopper across the US next week after a successful run in six regions.

The rollout to 7,000 locations will be for a limited time, a typical practice in the fast-food industry for new products. The chain will not say how many of the burgers it has sold since first introducing them in April, but did say it is enticing more people to enter its stores.

Impossible Foods, the company that makes the burgers for Burger King and White Castle, is struggling to meet surging demand. On Thursday it announced a new partnership with OSI, one of the world’s largest food producers.

Impossible Foods has doubled the workers at its plant and produced a record number of burgers in June, but demand is still outpacing production.

Impossible Foods introduced the burger as the veggie patty that “bleeds” at the high-end New York restaurant Momofuku in 2016. The burger is a feat of food engineering, attaining its red color from genetically modified yeast.

Demand for plant-based meat alternatives has surged in the last two years as companies pitch the products to consumers conscious of meat’s contribution to the global climate crisis.

The company’s largest rival, Beyond Meat, went public this summer, growing sales and its stock price rapidly after entering the stock market. Beyond Meat’s sales are also buoyed by a patty – the Beyond burger.

Both Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat are competing to offer their products in fast-food chains and directly to consumers – and struggling to meet demand.
Just eight days before Burger King announced the Impossible Whopper, Dunkin’ announced it would offer Beyond sausage patties on breakfast sandwiches in New York City. Only one day earlier, the US Food and Drug Administration approved Impossible Food’s products for sale direct to consumers, after it approved leghemoglobin as a color additive.
