Can I use a different kind of cheese? 

Yes! Mozzarella was a great option, but Swiss or provolone would be good choices as well. You can use whatever you have on hand or whatever your family enjoys! 

Do I have to make these with pesto? 

If you don't like pesto or if it's the only thing you don't have on hand I wouldn't rush out to buy some. There is only 2 Tbsp included in the recipe so it's not an overwhelming flavor in these turkey sliders. If you are really opposed to the pesto flavor just skip it. It won't impact the recipe enough to justify missing out on these sliders altogether!

Can I prep these turkey sliders in advance? 

You can definitely prep these turkey sliders in advance. They're perfect to heat up for a quick dinner or for lunches throughout the week. I love having a batch on hand for the summer when the kids can put them together on their own for lunches. These also travel well for when we have swim meets and practices.
