Grilled Stuffed Pizza Burgers

Grilled Stuffed Pizza Burgers

2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped pepperoni (about 1 oz)
2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
1/2 cup pizza sauce
6 slices (3/4 oz each) mozzarella cheese, cut in half diagonally
6 burger buns, split, toasted
6 leaves lettuce
6 sliced fresh tomatoes

Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, mix ground turkey and salt. Shape mixture into 12 thin patties, each about 4 inches in diameter.

In small bowl, mix pepperoni, olives and 1/3 cup of the pizza sauce. Spoon rounded tablespoon pepperoni mixture onto center of 6 patties; spread slightly. Top with remaining patties; press edges together firmly to seal.

Place patties on grill; cover grill. Cook with medium heat 8 to 12 minutes, turning once, until thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F (avoid inserting in filling). During last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking time, top each patty with cheese and rounded teaspoon of remaining pizza sauce, and place buns, cut side down, on grill; cook until cheese is melted and buns are lightly toasted.

To serve, place lettuce, tomato and patties in bottom halves of buns. Cover with top halves of buns.
