Substitution(s): Cooked, sliced turkey breast or chicken can be used instead of cooking turkey cutlets. If using cooked turkey, skip step 1.

How to make it

  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until shimmers. Season turkey with salt and pepper if desired. Add turkey breast cutlet and cook 5 minutes, turning once, or until cooked through.
  2. In mini-processor fitted with steel blade pulse basil, Parmesan, olive oil, pine nuts, salt and pepper until combined.
  3. In a small bowl mix pesto and sun dried tomato to combine. Spread on one cut side of focaccia. Top with turkey and mozzarella. Place focaccia slice on top.
