For the Pizza Sauce
  1. 1 tomato, diced
  2. 6oz of tomato paste
  3. ½ teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  4. ½ teaspoon sugar
  5. ¼ teaspoon salt
  6. ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
For the Burgers
  1. 1 lb ground turkey
  2. 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
  3. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  4. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  5. 1 tablespoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  6. 2 slices of mozzarella cheese
  7. 8 whole wheat hamburger slider buns
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)
  9. salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. For the Pizza Sauce, dice the tomato by hand or with a food processor. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian herb seasoning, salt, and black pepper, and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Set aside.
  2. For the Burgers, use your hands to combine the ground turkey steak seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, Italian herb seasoning, salt & pepper in a large bowl; be careful not to over-mix the meat. Shape the meat into 8 small balls.
  3. Grill the burgers over medium-high heat until done (hamburger meat should be cooked until it’s no longer pink in the center) for about 6-8 minutes. While burgers are cooking, divide each slice of mozzarella cheese into 4 smaller slices
  4. Place the burgers on the bottom bun on a broiler pan then top with spoonful of sauce and small slice of cheese. Broil on low heat for 5 minutes until the cheese melts.
  5. Sprinkle the parsley on top of the cheese and add the top bun. Serve and enjoy!
