  1. Preheat the grill to high. Lightly toast the focaccia buns under the grill. Use a spoon to gently halve the burrata in a bowl.
  2. Divide the mortadella between the bottom halves of the toasted focaccia. Spoon over the burrata, then dollop on the pesto. Scatter over the rocket and chopped pistachios. Spoon over any juices from the burrata bowl and finish with a grinding of black pepper before adding the top halves of the buns to serve.

Tip: Swap the burrata for mozzarella, if you prefer.
