INGREDIENTS

1‑1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped kalamata olives
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon diced tomato
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon black pepper

PREPARATION:

  1. Prepare grill for direct cooking.
