Stir tomatoes and basil together in a bowl until well-combined.

Cook patties on the preheated grill until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Place a slice of mozzarella cheese onto each burger during the last minute of cooking.

Place 1 burger on the bottom half of each bun, spoon some tomato mixture onto each burger, and place top bun on top.
