Mini Pizza

Adapted from Big Red Kitchen

Makes 4 servings
Per serving: ¾ leaner protein, 3 condiments, 1 healthy fat, ½ vegetable serving

1 lb ground turkey 95-97% lean
1 egg
1 ¼ tsp Italian seasoning, divided
½ tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp organic no salt added tomato paste
4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp black pepper
1 cup grated mozzarella
1 cup sliced red bell pepper or peppadew

Preheat oven to 425. Mix together ground turkey, egg, 1 tsp Italian seasoning, and salt until well blended. Place a piece of plastic wrap in a wide-mouth mason jar lid and press a scant ¼ cup of the turkey mixture to the edge of the ring, forming a small patty. Repeat until all the meat is used.
Place patties on a foil lined jell-roll pan with edges and back for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, thin the tomato paste with olive oil and add ¼ tsp Italian seasoning and black pepper. Set aside.
Remove turkey crusts from the oven and dab the tops with paper towels to remove excess grease. Top each with a tsp of tomato paste mixture, cheese, and pepperdews. Bake another 5 minutes.
Remove pizzas to a paper towel lined plate, then place on a serving platter. Eat immediately.
