  2. Heat remaining 2 tbsp. olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until firm to the touch.
  3. For pizza topping: don’t form patties, but brown the turkey in a skillet with 2 tbsp. of olive oil, breaking up all the larger pieces. Cook several minutes until cooked through. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Refrigerate until using.
