These were awesome. I made them for my sons first birthday and they were the hit of the party. I'll definately make these again.

Braiden chose to make these last Wednesday. He's starting to really think about the recipes. He wanted to know if they could be pizza burgers. I said, "Let's try!". So we made all of the cute little burgers and he placed them on the puff pastry. He put a spoonful of pizza sauce on each and then a good helping of shredded mozzerella cheese. He had a little trouble folding and twisting so Grandma helped. Then he pulled his little stool up to the oven and watched them bake. "Grandma!! They're getting puffier!!" He called out every couple of minutes. Too stinkin' cute!! When they were done, he called Grandpa and his daddy to the table and we had a nice salad with our puffy pizza burgers! Another great time with my precious grandson!
