  • 2 large flatbreads

Walnut Pesto

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh arugula rocket leaves
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese, grated
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded Honeycrisp apple (about 1/3 of a large apple)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Flatbread Filling

  • 6-8 slices deli-style turkey (I like Applegate products as they are antibiotic and nitrate-free)
  • 1 organic apple, sliced thin (about 8-10 slices)
  • 1 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded


  • Arugula
  • Walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. Prepare pesto by adding all ingredients but olive oil into a blender (I love my Ninja Blender for jobs such as this) and blend. Slowly add in olive oil and continue blending until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Place 2 flatbreads on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 2 minutes. Remove from oven.
  4. Spread a layer of pesto on each flatbread. Top with 3-4 turkey slices.
  5. Place 4 slices of apple, easily sliced thin with a mandolin, over the turkey slices then sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Place back in oven for about 4-5 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  7. Remove breads to cutting board, sprinkle with arugula and walnuts then cut at an angle with pizza cutter. Serve warm.
  8. Makes 2 large flatbreads.
