Ingredients

1 store-bought pizza dough

leftover green bean casserole using Del Monte® Blue Lake® Cut Green Beans

leftover turkey, shredded into small pieces

cranberry sauce, for serving

Thanksgiving Leftover Pizza

There’s only one thing better than the traditional Thanksgiving meal…the leftovers. We always have an abundance of leftover turkey, cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes. It’s my grandma’s stuffing and turkey gravy that is always gone too quickly. Man is it good! We typically start preparations the night before and find ourselves up before dawn cooking and preparing for dinner 14 hours later, so it’s normal to feel exhausted the day after. That’s why it’s really helpful to have all those leftovers on hand however, after stuffing ourselves full of all the different dishes, you may not be craving the same foods you had yesterday.

Making this pizza is both a unique and stress-free way to change up the same old leftovers routine. It’s so easy, especially with the premade cauliflower crust from Heinen’s. It’s the perfect combination of chewy and crispy. It gets even better with my homemade sage herb butter. I like to add the herb butter before hand and bake the crust before adding all the toppings. I find that doing this adds another layer of flavor to the pizza crust and helps keep it crispy as it bakes.

The “leftovers” I chose for this pizza were sweet potato mash, kale (or Brussels sprouts) for a pop of green, turkey (of course), goat cheese and my homemade citrus cranberry sauce. I make this sauce every year for Thanksgiving! This pizza is tangy and sweet with a little saltiness from the turkey and creaminess from the goat cheese. Turkey Day Cranberry Pizza just might become your new favorite way to enjoy leftovers!

  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries

For the Sage Herb Butter

  • ½ tsp. thyme

For the Pizza

  • 2 Heinen’s cauliflower pizza crusts
  • 3 cups sweet potato mash
  • 6 Tbsp. sage herb butter (above)
  • 6 oz. shredded turkey meat
  • 1 1/2 cups kale or Brussels sprouts
  • ¼ white onion
  • 4 Tbsp. goat cheese, crumbled
  • Citrus cranberry sauce (above), for drizzling

Instructions

For the Citrus Cranberry Sauce

  2. Bring to a boil, then add cranberries and apple chunks.
  3. Lower the heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.

For the Sage Herb Butter

For the Pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  2. Spread 3 Tbsp. of the sage herb butter onto each cauliflower crust all the way to the edges. Bake the buttered crusts for 15 minutes.

  4. Bake for another 10 minutes and drizzle with the homemade citrus cranberry sauce.

We Made This Pizza Out of Thanksgiving Leftovers

The day after Thanksgiving (aka, Black Friday) may be over, but you probably definitely still have Thanksgiving leftovers, and if you’re looking for ways to make them more exciting, we have one word for you: pizza.

I’ve been making strange, unacceptable pizzas for some time now. If you don’t think Thanksgiving leftovers work as pizza (but trust me, they do!), then try using your leftovers to make epic turkey-tastic nachos.

Ingredients

  • 1 ball of pizza dough (feel free to use store-bought pizza dough!)
  • Flour (for dusting)
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup gravy
  • 1/2 cup roasted turkey
  • 1 cup sausage stuffing
  • 4 tablespoons cranberry sauce

How to Make Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza

1. Set the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface, then place it on a baking sheet or pizza stone.
3. Spread the gravy over the pizza crust, leaving approximately a half inch of crust free of gravy.
4. Next evenly distribute the cheese, turkey, cranberry sauce and sausage stuffing over the gravy base.
6. Bake pizza in the oven for 15 minutes. Enjoy!


How To Make Thanksgiving Pizza In a Cast-Iron Skillet

Getting family members psyched about Thanksgiving leftover recipes is always hard, especially as the days soldier on (unless it's pie—they will always eat pie). Sure, you can feed them another turkey sandwich (here are some theories on how to build the best). You can also whip up a homey, though expected, soup (I like the idea of this chowder).

I know, I know—you probably cooked all day Thursday, and maybe even all week, so once Thanksgiving is over, you want to take it easy. Homemade pizza might sound daunting, but with store-bought dough and all those Thanksgiving leftovers, it's actually pretty easy. In fact, this is one of the fastest Thanksgiving leftovers recipes you can make, coming together in less time than it takes to get delivery (in 22 minutes or less, to be exact).

The key to fast, crispy pizza is cooking it in a cast-iron skillet and mastering "the flip:" cook the pizza dough in the skillet with a little oil for a few minutes until toasty, then carefully flip the dough over, add the toppings, and finish it in the oven. That way you get a lovely crackly crust with nice browning on both sides.

Ready to do this? Here's a minute-by-minute guide:

Set yourself up for success: Move the rack to the upper third of your oven (this oven organization will help brown the top of the crust and melt the cheese quickly), then preheat to 500°F. I call for room temperature pizza dough in this recipe because it's easier to roll out if yours is still a little chilled, place it on a rimmed baking sheet set over bowl of hot water to soften. Roll the dough into a 12" round on a lightly floured surface (if it springs back, cover with plastic and let rest 5 minutes, then roll again, resting as needed).

Now it's time to preheat your skillet. You want it hot enough to get the crust nice and toasty without scorching it. Add a little oil and carefully transfer the dough to the skillet. You only need to cook it for 3 or 4 minutes to get a nicely browned, crispy bottom. While the dough crisps, toss the turkey with cranberry sauce and slice the red onion).

Move your pan off the heat, carefully flip the dough over, brush it with oil, and top with a layer of mashed white or sweet potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. And don't worry—the pre-toasted top helps prevent the potatoes from making the top crust soggy. Top with the potatoes with some shredded cheese (I like a mix of mozzarella and cheddar on the white potatoes and Fontina on the sweet potatoes), shredded turkey, and leftover vegetables such as green beans, Brussels sprouts, roasted carrots, squash, sautéed greens, or roasted mushrooms. Finish off with some red onion for bite, a little more cheese, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes if you like things a little spicy.

Slide the cast-iron pan into the oven and bake until the top of the dough is golden brown, everything is warmed through, and the cheese is melted. Since you're reheating the toppings rather than cooking anything through, it only takes 6 to 8 minutes.

Transfer the pizza to a cutting board and cut into wedges. Serve with additional cranberry sauce on the side, and watch it disappear.


Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza

Forget turkey sandwiches. If you can think of a more creative way to use Thanksgiving leftovers than making them into a pizza, please, let us know.

This approach utilizes cranberry sauce in place of tomato sauce and then allows you to top it off with whatever’s taking up space in the fridge: turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, green beans, etc.

Pile it all on, bake, and you’ll forever remember Thanksgiving as the holiday that just keeps on giving.

Ingredients

1 whole wheat pizza dough (already prepared is fine)

Leftover brussels sprouts, beets, sweet potatoes, etc. (any leftover veggies)

2 ounces parmesan or goat cheese, depending on vegetables used

to taste Herbs: tarragon, sage, thyme (whatever you have on hand)

Directions

  1. Follow directions on package for whole wheat dough.
  2. Add cranberry sauce in place of tomato sauce.
  3. Add on cheese (goat or parmesan, depending on the vegetables you have.)
  4. Toss on leftover veggies and turkey breast.
  5. Bake per whole wheat dough instructions and enjoy!

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Roll out your whole wheat dough nice and thin (or buy a thin crust round version), and you’ll be eating minimal extra carbs alongside all of those leftovers. It’s a genius upgrade to the Black Friday sandwich you’re used to. Plus, if you’re exhausted from cooking, cleaning (and maybe shopping), you can let the kids help. Sprinkling toppings on a crust is kid-friendly cooking at its best.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza

Pile this pizza high with all of your Thanksgiving leftovers, like turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and veggies like brussels sprouts.

Leftovers are one of the best things about Thanksgiving, am I right? From leftover turkey sandwiches to pie for breakfast, Thanksgiving is a meal that can keep on giving all weekend long.

But after a few days, I often crave something different, even if the tupperware in my fridge are still full. So here’s a way to clear out the fridge and turn those Thanksgiving leftovers into a whole new meal.

There is no exact recipe for this pizza. All you need is pizza crust, some cheese (I used Fontina but Gruyere or even a sharp cheddar would be great too), and whatever leftovers you have in the fridge.

Keep it light and simple, or top it with everything you’ve got. It’s up to you!

If there's any problem with Thanksgiving, it's that you have leftovers. And even that's a nice problem to have. But that sort of interferes with pizzamaking, right? There you are, all ready to prep your sauce and stretch out a ball of dough when Aunt Mabel reminds you, "You're cooking? We've got a whole fridge full of food!"

Well, we've got the solution for you: Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza. Make one of these for them, and then go about your usual pie-slinging business.

One good thing about this pizza is that it's OK if you miss the mark and make it sort of oblong, like I did here. The rustic presence-of-hand thing here fits in with the holiday.
