Chicken Pizza Burgers

Serves 4
  • 1 lb. ground chicken

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 tsp. dried basil

  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced

  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt

  • 1/4 tsp. coarse ground black pepper

  • - cooking spray

  • 4 Kowalski's Take & Bake Ciabatta Rolls, split horizontally and lightly toasted

  • 4 oz. Kowalski's Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup Kowalski's Pizza Sauce, warmed in the microwave

  • - fresh basil, for garnish


Combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix thoroughly; form 4 patties. Spray burgers very lightly on both sides with cooking spray. On a grill preheated to medium-high, grill burgers directly over heat until done (4-5 min. on each side), lid down, turning twice and topping evenly with cheese in the last 2 min. of cooking (after flipping burgers for the last time). Remove from heat; let stand 3-5 min., tented loosely with foil, before serving. Serve on warm rolls topped with sauce and garnished with fresh basil.

Good to Know: Use slightly damp hands to shape your burgers, to keep the mixture from sticking to your fingers.
