Submitted by Linda in Lima, Ohio, who says this dish is a favorite with her kids and their friends. She serves the Pizza Wheels with a salad and french fries. Our grandsons, Roger (10) and Ian (10), were not going to be outdone by the granddaughters, so they decided they would make this recipe for their Opa's website.

PREPARATION:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine eggs, milk, bread crumbs, onion and salt. Add meat and mix well. Shape meat mixture into circles appx 4 to 4 inches in diameter, building a 1 inch high edge. Place in Baking dishes. Combine tomato sauce and pizza seasoning. Spoon into center of patties.

Bake in oven for appx. 30 minutes, longer if necessary. When wheels (circles) are done, remove from oven and lay cheese in a spoke-fashion on top of the patties. Turn off oven. Return dish to oven to melt cheese, appx 2 minutes. Serve warm.

HINTS: If you do not have a hamburger press, form mixture into appx 3 inch balls and use a saucer to push down into patties. We used a small measuring bowl to press center of pattie to form the 1" sides. We served this with toasted garlic bread because Ian and Roger chose that and loved the results of their cooked dish!
