byrd food: turkey burger pizza

I love turkey burgers. And turkey burgers love me. At least, I’m guessing that’s what they would say if they could talk. Kind of a weird thing to think about, yea? Even weirder way to start off this blog post. I’m sorry. Blame my seriously sleep-deprived mom brain.


I had a serious hankering for a turkey burger last week but it was Friday. And in the Byrd household, Fridays are for pizza. And beer. (can’t forget the beer) So I did a little bit of Googling and came across this recipe.

sweetbabyjesus it was delicious.

Ground turkey in Worcestershire sauce (I swear that’s the secret to any good burger). Onions caramelized in butter. Cheese. Onions caramelized in butter. Homemade dough. Onions caramelized in butter. And did I mention onions caramelized in butter?!

Do yourself a favor and make this pizza immediately. Or come over to my house so I have an excuse to make it again.
