1 (9-inch) deep-dish pastry shell, unbaked
1 1/2 cups chopped or shredded cooked turkey
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained (reserve liquid)
1/2 cup Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup diced green onions
3 eggs
3/4 cup light or regular mayonnaise
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup pineapple juice (reserved from crushed pineapple)
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

Heat oven to 375°F. Pierce pastry shell several times with fork; bake 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 350°.

In same bowl, whisk together eggs, mayonnaise, milk, reserved pineapple juice and white pepper until well-combined. Pour mixture evenly over turkey and pineapple filling. Sprinkle almonds and parsley over filling.
