Preheat the oven to 450°F (to bake fries and toast buns). Start prepping when oven comes up to temperature! In Step 5, use this garlic guide to determine what garlic level you prefer: 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp extra!
Wash and dry all produce.* Over two baking sheets, toss sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp oil (per baking sheet). Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle and top of the oven. Rotate the sheets and turning sweet potatoes over halfway through cooking, until golden-brown, 20-22 min. (NOTE: This healthier version won't get crispy like deep-fried fries!)
Meanwhile, peel, then mince or grate garlic. In a medium bowl, combine sausage and half the garlic. Form the mixture into four 4-inch wide burger patties. Lightly press a thumb print into each patty. (NOTE: Don't push all the way through!)
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil, then burgers. Pan-fry until cooked through, 4-5 min per side. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 71°C/160°F.**)
When burgers are done, remove the pan from the heat. Spoon pizza sauce over burgers, then sprinkle over cheese. Cover the pan with a lid and set aside until cheese melts and pizza sauce is warmed through 1-2 min.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine 2 tbsp oil and 1/4 tsp remaining garlic. (NOTE: Reference garlic guide in Start Strong.) When sweet potatoes are done, transfer to one baking sheet. Split buns in half and arrange on the empty baking sheet, cut-side up. Brush each half with garlic oil. Toast buns in the middle of the oven, until buns are golden, 2-3 min (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!)
Divide spinach between bottom buns then place a burger patty on top. Top each burger with a top bun. Divide burgers and sweet potatoes between plates.
