My husband and I made our very first turkey pizza a decade ago, when we both had to work on Thanksgiving day and didn’t have time to make the traditional dinner. Since then, it’s become a beloved tradition we sometimes honor on the day after Thanksgiving to make use of leftovers. I’m quite certain your family will love it too… at least more than turkey noodle soup!
Start by spreading gravy over a pre-baked pizza crust (we usually use Boboli). Add a layer of stuffing on top of the gravy. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese next, and cover with shredded turkey. Consider adding a drizzle of additional gravy, some corn niblets, cranberry sauce, or whatever sounds good to you. We used to start with a layer of mashed potatoes, but it makes the pizza really heavy and doesn’t add much flavor—but if you’ve got some killer mashed potatoes, go ahead and give it a try! Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until the crust is completely done and the cheese is melted.
If pizza’s on your list of things you’re thankful for, you must try this one. It probably won’t be as pretty as your Thanksgiving day spread, but I’m willing to bet it’ll be just as tasty.

This sounds delicious! I will definitely try making it next Thanksgiving!
