Thanksgiving (Leftover) Pizza

Thanksgiving (Leftover) Pizza

Thanksgiving dinner for many includes lots of leftovers, but have you ever heard of Turkey Pizza? Our El Paso Correspondent, Roman, learned how to make this delicious dish!

“The Feast” - a popular pizza with a holiday twist

When you think of Thanksgiving leftovers you’ve probably heard of turkey bowls and turkey sandwiches...but have you ever thought to make a Thanksgiving pizza? Daytime got the chance to learn the recipe from a popular El Paso pizza spot: The Pizza Joint. Owner Melissa Goldberg walked us through the process of making this tasty pie and shared with us the idea behind it. “You can take any ingredients that you have at home, and you can throw them on a piece of dough. It can work the same as we use a tortilla or a biscuit.”

To make this feast at home you will need the following:

15 oz. dough ball

1 cup mozzarella cheese

3/4 cup mushroom gravy sauce

3/4 cup cooked turkey

3/4 cup stuffing

1/2 cup green beans

1/2 cup french fried onions

Cranberry sauce - To be used on pizza or for dipping

1/4 cup flour

? cup cornmeal


Dust dough ball and prep counter with flour

Flatten dough ball out to about 12-15 inches

Dust cooking pan with cornstarch and transfer dough onto the pan

Spread gravy sauce in a circular motion around the dough, leaving 1-2 inches for the crust

Add all your toppings except for the cranberry sauce

Place pizza in oven at 475 and bake for 8-10 minutes

Pizza will be done when you smell the Thanksgiving feast

Top pizza with cranberry sauce if desired
