Most people that you’ll meet in life love Pizza. When I was a kid, I worked in a Pizzeria called Mike’s Abeetz in Jackson Heights, Queens. At 13 years old, I learned how to make great Pizza and Calzones from guys who made a career of it. Those good techniques and ingredients carry over into this delicious recipe without the high carbohydrates of regular Pizza. The Pesto gives the recipe a unique flavor unlike traditional Pizza, but just as delicious. The ground turkey is seasoned with Dean Jacob’s outstanding Sicilian Blend which compliments the Pesto. There’s nothing like a hot slice out of the oven! We enjoy this recipe with a Root Beer ZEVIA over ice, which together bring back great memories for me of my days at Mike’s Abeetz! We hope that you’ll enjoy this recipe all winter to some great Italian classics by Louie Prima, Jerry Vale, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Connie Francis, & more!

Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
