slimmers’ turkey pizza melt

ingredients

  • 4 British turkey breast steaks
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 115ml chicken stock
  • 400g vine tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 2 yellow peppers, deseeded and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 level tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 200g mozzarella, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • A small handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • A small handful of fresh basil leaves
  • A large green salad, to serve

method

  1. Put each British turkey breast steak between 2 sheets of cling film, flatten with a rolling pin until about 0.5cm thick and then remove the cling film.
  2. Place a large frying pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray over a medium heat. Add the British turkey steaks, 1 or 2 at a time if necessary, and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until cooked through and golden brown. Remove from the pan, transfer to a large grill rack, cover and keep warm until needed.
  3. Add the chicken stock to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes until reduced. Stir in the vine tomatoes, peppers, tomato purée, oregano and chilli flakes and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Preheat your grill to medium. Spoon the tomato mixture onto the British turkey breasts and then top with mozzarella slices. Season, then grill for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling.
  5. Garnish with chopped parsley and basil leaves and serve with a large green salad.
