Turkey Topped Pizza

10 minutes
Serves: 8

Your can add any of these to the top of your pizza: Thin slices of green pepper, yellow pepper, or red pepper; fresh basil leaves or oregano; thin slices of red onion, yellow onion, or Spanish onion; grilled eggplant, zucchini, broccoli florets; mushroom slices; and any kind of olives.


  • 9 oz ground turkey
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder (or 1—2 fresh garlic cloves, minced)
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp fennel seed
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 2 whole wheat English muffins, split
  • 4 pita bread
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 9 oz lowfat mozzarella cheese, shredded
  1. In a hot skillet, add oil, ground turkey and all other seasonings.
  2. Cook until turkey resembles a finely ground mixture and temperature is 165 degrees F and juices are clear-colored.
  3. Place muffin halves and pitas on sheet pan. Divide and spread turkey topping evenly over tops of muffin halves and pitas. Top with sauce, and sprinkle on mozzarella.
  4. Bake in oven at 375 degrees F until cheeses melt, about 5—10 minutes.

Variation: You can also use the turkey topping for other meals. Mix some into tomato sauce. Add 1/2 tsp of chili powder to season. Put in a taco shell—or hot dog bun—with shredded romaine lettuce.
