Combine salt and pepper in a small bowl.Heat a griddle or cast iron skillet over medium-high. Meanwhile, divide the meat evenly into 8 balls. Sprinkle the tops with salt and pepper and place seasoned-side down on the preheated griddle. Working quickly, smash each burger into a thin layer using a metal spatula. Sprinkle the flattened tops with the remaining salt and pepper and cook - undisturbed - for 3 minutes. Flip the patties, place a slice of cheese on top of each, and cook an additional 2 minutes. Transfer to buns and serve immediately with desired toppings.
