Pizza burgers were always a favorite of my boys when they were growing up, so when I asked them to taste this healthy version of their childhood treat, I held my breath for a moment. Phew! They absolutely loved it - and I bet your kids will too!

16 ounces extra-lean ground sirloin beef or turkey breast
6 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) dried fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons JO's Italian Seasoning or any Italian seasoning
1/4 cup Heinz Light Harvest Ketchup or any reduced-sodium ketchup
3 (3/4-ounce) slices Kraft reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
6 lettuce leaves
1 medium-sized fresh tomato, cut into 6 slices
6 small hamburger buns

In a large bowl, combine meat, bread crumbs, onion, black pepper, JO's Italian Seasoning, and ketchup. Mix well to combine. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup as a guide, form into 6 patties. Arrange patties in a large skillet sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray. Brown for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. Cut mozzarella cheese slices in half. Place 1 piece of cheese on each patty and continue cooking for 1 minute or until cheese melts. For each sandwich, place a lettuce leaf and a tomato slice on bun bottom, arrange meat patty over tomato, and place bun top over meat.
