Thanksgiving Pizza

There are two things in this world that I may not be able to live without.

Thanksgiving and pizza.

Ok…so maybe there are more important things in life, but these two things, especially when it comes to food, rank sky-scraper high on my list of loves.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I decided to combine two of my favorites, Thanksgiving leftovers and pizza, to make this Thanksgiving pizza that you’re definitely going to want to make this fall.

Do you normally have Thanksgiving leftovers? The bigger our family gets, the less leftovers we have. Mashed potatoes are the first to go, stuffing follows closely behind. Turkey, though? There are often turkey leftovers waiting for us to gobble them up several days after the Thanksgiving feast.

So why not make a pizza?

This Thanksgiving pizza recipe using Stonefire naan comes together quickly in about 15 minutes and will help you savor those Thanksgiving flavors in a whole new way.

How To Make Thanksgiving Pizza

  • For a quick & easy base to your pizza, use Stonefire mini naan flatbread. They make a delicious base for pizzas, garlic breads, wraps or sandwiches.
  • Top the naan with leftover shredded turkey. If you don’t have any Thanksgiving turkey left, you can also use deli turkey or even roasted chicken.
  • Spoon some leftover green bean casserole over the turkey. No green bean casserole left? Warm 1 can of green beans (drained) in a saucepan along with ½ cup cream of mushroom soup. Once this is heated through, spoon it over the turkey. Voila. Make-shift green bean casserole!
  • Sprinkle french-fried onions overtop the green bean casserole.
  • Lastly comes the savory butter drizzle. One of my favorite flavors of the fall season is poultry seasoning. Take ¼ cup melted butter and mix in salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Drizzle this over the Thanksgiving pizzas. The butter and spices will bake into the mini pizzas to give an unsurpassable flavor.

Lastly, you’ll bake the Thanksgiving pizzas for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.

Everything will get heated through and the naan will get slightly crispy from the butter cooking at its edges.

The family was hovering while I baked these. “Are you done yet, Mom? You’re killing us with that aroma!”

I think I found our new way to eat Thanksgiving leftovers. 🙂
