- 1 lb. lean ground turkey, optional ground beef
- 1 sweet onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons water

Cook ground turkey, onion and garlic in a large skillet, breaking up meat as it cooks. If cooking in the slow cooker, this step is optional, though you may get a better flavor if you brown the meat first.
Drain ground turkey thoroughly.
For the Slow Cooker Method:
Add the turkey and remaining ingredients to the slow cooker and mix well. Set on simmer and cover. Cook on low for 3- 4 hours or on high for 2- 3 hours. If you don't brown the turkey first, cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
For the Stovetop Method:
Add remaining ingredients to the turkey in the skillet. Mix well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Serve on toasted 100% whole wheat buns. Enjoy pizza burgers with our Sweet Potato Fries.
