Turkey Meatballs:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, bread crumbs, onion, parsley, eggs, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls (you should have around 48 total).
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup. Coat a wire rack with nonstick cooking spray and set it on top of the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Arrange the meatballs on the rack, brush with the oil, and bake until browned with crispy, 15 to 20 minutes.
  1. Spread the tzatziki onto each pita.
  2. Place a cucumber slice on each pita; it should take up about half of the pita.
  3. On the other half, place a few diced tomatoes.
  4. Place meatball on top in the middle, overlapping the cucumber and tomato. Secure with a toothpick.
  5. Sprinkle with dried basil and black pepper to taste.
