Sprinkle the ground beef evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Gently form the meat into 4 balls, then lightly press into 4 in.wide, 1 in. thick patties. Make a 2 in. wide indentation in the center of each with your thumb to prevent the burgers from bulging when grilled.
Preheat grill to high. Season the patties with salt and pepper. Grill, undisturbed, until marked on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and grill until the other side is marked and the patties feel firm, 3 to 5 more minutes; if desired, top each burger with 2 slices cheese during the last 2 minutes of cooking and cover with a disposable aluminum pan to melt. Serve the patties on buns, top with lettuce and tomato.
