Image result for pizza sauce

I recommend Ragu's Pizza Sauce when using this recipe, it has a robust flavor that pairs well with the sweetness of the brown sugar giving this combo a freshness and twist on two traditional family favorites.

Stovetop Directions:
1.) Brown ground turkey in a pan and add in chopped onion and pepper during last 2-3 minutes of cooking; cook until meat is done and veggies are tender.
2.). Stir in ALL remaining ingredients and simmer on stovetop for at least 20 minutes.
3). Serve on freshly grilled buns topped with shredded mozzarella, pepperoni and olives.
