Everyone loves pizza. Everyone love burgers. Put them together and it's awesome. Seriously good stuff. They don't look overly impressive from the photos but the flavoring and spices was spot on.
The husband had the idea for putting some pepperoni before the cheese was melted but I don't think it needs it at all.
I know we like to make mini pizzas on English Muffins and you could certainly serve these burgers on English Muffins. I used my trusted Arnold Select Sandwich Thins. I love how they are 100 calories and they taste great!
I also put 1/2 slice of provolone cheese. One slice was pretty big and was 70 calories, so mine had 35 calories. Go ahead and add what you'd like but this is what is reflected in the calorie count below.
2 lbs. ground turkey
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 cup minced cilantro (or you could use parsley)
1 1/2 tsp. basil, dried
1 1/2 tsp. oregano
1 1/2 tsp. crushed rosemary
1 tsp. black pepper
1 cup pizza sauce
Combine ground turkey, eggs, parmesan cheese, cilantro and spices. Shape into 8 burger patties. Either grill or pan fry hamburgers until done. Top with provolone cheese (I used 1/2 slice). Serve with 2 tbsp. pizza sauce on Arnold Selects sandwich thins, or english muffins.
