Thanksgiving Pizza? Yep, That’s a Thing! Here Are 13 RecipesNovember 18, 2015 by Buck's Pizza | Comments Off on Thanksgiving Pizza? Yep, That’s a Thing! Here Are 13 Recipes
You’re way too creative to settle for plain old turkey this Thanksgiving. You’re a nonconformist with a taste for the original and it’s time to transform that traditional dinner or those leftovers. Why not create a Thanksgiving pizza? Seriously!
Think about it—is it really that crazy? If barbecue sauce, broccoli, potatoes and pineapple ended up on pizza, why not foods like turkey and stuffing? Take a look at some already tried and tested seasonal pie recipes, and you’ll see it’s time Thanksgiving pizza (or post-Thanksgiving pizza) makes it mainstream.
What do you get when you combine old-fashioned pizza dough with leftover gobbler, mashed potatoes and gravy, chunky cranberry sauce, a cup of stuffing, and a few other well-chosen ingredients? Well, in 50 minutes or so, you’ve got a pie that says “thankful” in a whole new way!
If you like your Thanksgiving pizza light on crust but heavy on the bird, this is the recipe for you! Fill up with a pound of turkey sausage and a couple cups of turkey breast over a thin pizza crust.
What could be better than cheesy Thanksgiving pizza that includes all the food groups but takes less than an hour to make, including prep time?
Class up your post-Thanksgiving pizza with brussels sprouts, goat cheese, and dried cranberries. Better still, do it in an hour or less!
Homemade pizza dough topped by a layer of creamy mashed potatoes, a cup of stuffing, turkey, and cheeses? Then drizzled with gravy? Now you’re talking!
Low on leftovers? Well you won’t need much more than a little chopped turkey, a handful of stuffing, and a couple dabs of jellied cranberry sauce to create this totally tasty post-Thanksgiving pie.
How about cheese-smothered, personal-sized turkey pizzas made with flat bread and tangy BBQ sauce instead of marinara? No flat bread? Try using the same ingredients on tortillas or French baguettes!
Get garlicky with it when you combine two cloves with your traditional T-Day leftovers and cheddar cheese. Bake the whole thing up in a square pan, and you’ve got a pie that will please the whole family.
Pile on all the leftovers! Veggies, too, if you want—brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, carrots, whatever. This pizza is only as limited as your imagination!
Turkey gravy for sauce? You bet. Add garlic, a liberal sprinkling of fresh sliced mushrooms, and, yum! Dip your just-from-the-oven pie in leftover cranberry sauce or spinach dip to kick the yum factor up even higher.
Now let’s talk healthy Thanksgiving pizza with a touch of gourmet. It starts with a whole-grain crust topped with cranberry relish instead of marinara. The pie is topped off with mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey, and crumbled goat cheese.
How do shredded turkey, collard greens and/or spinach, commercial (or homemade) Alfredo sauce and a thin pizza crust sound? Add fontina cheese and a bit of crushed red pepper for a seriously creative, awesomely delicious way to serve that leftover turkey.
If you want to go all out, try this pizza with Angelic Seven-Grain Sprouted Crust, green beans, mashed potatoes, turkey, cranberry sauce, and Angelic Seven-Grain Sprouted Stuffing. It’s one of a kind, people. We’re just saying.
