Chicken Pizza Burgers

Whipped these babies up for dinner tonight, and they were a hit all around. Even Finny loved little bits of the burger!!

The burgers were super moist and were great dipped into some extra sauce on the side. Great way to use leftover homemade marinara!

Chicken Pizza Burgers


1 Lb ground chicken
1 egg
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup parm
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
3 cloves garlic, grated or minced
fresh black pepper

1/2 cup marinara sauce
4 sliced reduced fat provolone cheese


Preheat oven to 375

Mix all ingredients together except provolone cheese and sauce. Form into 4 burgers. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes. Switch oven to broil. Spoon marinara sauce over burgers and cover with a slice of cheese. Broil until cheese is bubbly. Serve on toasted hamburger rolls.

ZACH'S RATING - **** 1/2

This was DELICIOUS!!!
I ate it without a bun and when I calculated with some minor changes it was 11 points. Totally filling and worth it, you could make them smaller too, maybe 5-6 servings to get the points lower too. I used an egg white, part skim ricotta (might try fat free next time), reduced fat parm and reduced fat provolone
These would make great meatballs too. Great flavor, super easy, and quick clean up.

So glad you liked them!! This is actually a spin off of my meatballs. I have been loving making burgers this way lately. Maybe I'll make them again this week...
