Pizza Burger

These burgers are ridiculously good. I could pretend that these burgers are healthier because they are made from ground turkey breast, but I'm pretty sure that the pepperoni and mozzarella cheese more than makes up for any chance they had at being healthy.

1 lb. ground turkey breast
2 t. dried basil
Salt and pepper
1/4 c. pizza sauce
20 pepperoni slices
4 slices fresh mozzarella
Fresh basil, thinly sliced
4 sesame buns, lightly toasted

Mix ground turkey with basil, salt and pepper. Form into 4 equal sized burger patties. Cook in skillet or grill for 6-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through. In skillet, cook pepperoni slices for 4-5 minutes, or until slightly crisp and rendered of fat. Drain pepperoni on a paper towel. In the last 3 minute of the burgers cooking, top each burger with a tablespoon of sauce, 5 slices of pepperoni and a slice of mozzarella. Tent burgers with foil and let cheese melt.
