2008 UEPa Pizza Burger Throwdown

The 2008 UEPa Pizza Burger Throwdown is on!

Mega Munch (http://megamunch.blogspot.com/), Skinnyboy (http://dogsarefunyes.blogspot.com/), and myself have each created our vision of what a pizza burger should be. In no particular order, here are our entries:




As computer technology has not advanced to the point where you can taste, touch, or smell the burgers, the competition is basically which one you find the most appetizing visually.
Please vote on which one you prefer in the comments section, along with any thoughts you might have on your choice. You can vote here, or on Mega Munch's or Skinnyboy's blogs. Sorry, no anonymous voting! In a week or so, we'll tally the votes and see who wins.
Good luck, Mega Munch and Skinnyboy!
Please, use the Name option if you don't have a Blogger ID!

Since I'm a competitor, of course I can't vote, but I will admit that all three burgers look great! Good luck!

the burger looks delicious - too bad you can't taste a web page

I would prefer Option 2, the fresh mozzarella puts it over the top for me

Margaret said...

I liked the looks of Option 2. It looked good enough to eat:-) Option 1 was too red - did not appeal to me. Option 3 was mundane though I am sure all were good.

Steve said...

#2 looks the best

Karen said...

Being a non-beef eater, I definitely have to go with #2 for beautiful presentation. Plus, as put so well in one of the other comments 'the fresh mozzarella' puts me over the top, too

I prefer #2

Ray said...

#2 looks to good to be called a Burger. Not that there is anything wrong with a burger, you just don't visualize something so appealing as #2 when thinking of burgers.

Barb said...

I vote for Option 2 - how can you NOT be loving that mozarella and tomato - what a great presentation!

I am a traditionalist. I like burger 1 because it reminds me of a classic pizza burger. Burger 2 looks good, but does not look like a pizza or burger, so it's out. Burger 3 has lettuce and I don't like lettuce on my pizza burger and besides, it's hard to make out the rest of the ingredients and I like to know what I'm eating.

I would love to sit down and eat one of each of these to make sure I pick the right one. They all look great. #2 has great presentation and looks like a whole meal laid out in front of you. That fact that you can then fold it up and actually eat the whole thing without it falling in your lap, would big a big plus for me.

Gods, they're all gorgeous. My vote's for #2, and here's why:

Unfortunately, I don't eat green pepper...not cooked, not raw, not ever, so that rules out #1. And yes, you can pick it off, but everything still tastes like pepper.

I love idea of the mini pizzas (if that's what they are) as buns on #3, but it looks a little dry. If all I had to go by was the picture in a menu, unfortunately I don't think I'd choose it. I'd agonize, but I'd probably pass.

That leaves #2, which, while it doesn't LOOK like a burger, still has all the components, in a unique presentation. I love pretty food, but I'm often disappointed because it doesn't taste as good as it looks. Here, though, the caprese and the mushrooms would be enough to make me forgive anything else that didn't live up to expectation.

Ed said...

I'm craving burger #2. It's original, it's beautiful and now I'm starving. It looks like a pizza, but also has all the makings of a quality burger. This is the kind of creative thinking that makes one restaurant stand out above the rest.

Diane said...

The middle one gets my vote! Presentation is tops and who needs all that bread!

Cheryll said...

Number 2 is my choice. I am all about salad, and #2 is just beautiful!

Rob said...

I like option number 1. Looks really good but not to overpowering.

Dick said...

I like 2 because of the sheer creativity. It looks great too.
