Start by preparing the pesto. Peel the garlic cloves, remove the germs, crush them. In a blender, place basil, cloves of garlic, 1 tablespoon of pine nuts and parmesan, salt, add a drizzle of olive oil and blend in order. Add a little olive oil until you get a slightly thick texture but not too much. Pour into a jar, close and refrigerate.

Wash the arugula, dry finely. Wash the tomatoes and cut them into pieces. Cut the mozzarella into slices. Remove the seeds and white membrane from the pepper, cut it into strips.

Toast the burger buns. Coat the base of the burger bun with the barbecue sauce. Garnish with arugula, pesto, tomato slices, mozzarella, arugula, pesto, bell pepper. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Close the burger bun and enjoy immediately.


It is best to prepare most of the filling at the last minute, however, the pesto can be prepared the day before. In this case, refrigerate it in an airtight container.
