mini burgers

i made these mini burgers with buns made with leftover pizza dough from yesterday's dinner and leftover anchovy & parsley calamari stuffing, my favorite kind. it reminds me of each time my family made stuffed seafood on holidays by croatian seaside. the patties are tender and soft, with perfect salty hint of anchovies, balanced by the soft and neutral bun. the cheese i used was italian raw sheep milk one, unfortunately i do not remember its name.
