Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

Preheating the oven is an important step in the process of making pizza turkey burgers with quick marinara. Begin by setting the oven to 375°F. This temperature will ensure that the burgers are cooked through and the marinara sauce is hot and bubbly. Allow the oven to preheat for at least 10 minutes before adding the burgers and marinara.

2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients.

Making pizza turkey burgers with quick marinara sauce is a simple and delicious meal that is sure to please. The first step is to combine 1 pound of ground turkey, 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley, 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/4 teaspoon of dried basil, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper in a large bowl. Once all the ingredients are mixed together, form the mixture into four patties.

3. Form the mixture into four patties.

Make sure to press the center of each patty with your thumb to create an indentation, which will help the patties cook evenly. Then, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the patties and cook for about 4 minutes per side, or until the patties are cooked through.

4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. 

Form the mixture into 4 patties. Next, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and the patties. Cook for 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. While the patties are cooking, prepare the quick marinara sauce by combining the marinara sauce, garlic, oregano, and Parmesan cheese in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes.

5. Transfer the patties to a baking sheet. 

Transferring the patties to a baking sheet is the first step in making Pizza Turkey Burgers with Quick Marinara. Once the patties are on the baking sheet, top each patty with 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. This will give the burgers a cheesy, Italian flavor. After the cheese is added, the patties should be placed in the oven and baked for 18-20 minutes, or until the patties are cooked through.

6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Once the sauce is finished, spread it over the turkey burgers and top with mozzarella cheese. Place the burgers in a baking dish and bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

7. Meanwhile, make the quick marinara sauce. 

To make the quick marinara sauce for the pizza turkey burgers, begin by heating 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Next, stir in 1 (15-ounce) can of diced tomatoes and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Simmer the sauce for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

8. Add 1 clove minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Next, add 1 pound of ground turkey to the skillet and season with 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt.

9.  Simmer for 10 minutes.

Adding diced tomatoes and oregano to the pizza turkey burgers with quick marinara is the ninth step in the recipe. To do this, open a 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes and pour the contents into a saucepan. Add 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano to the tomatoes and stir to combine.

Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the tomatoes to a simmer. Allow the tomatoes to simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the 10 minutes are up, the tomatoes are ready to be added to the pizza turkey burgers with quick marinara.
