Leftover Turkey Pizza

a picture of leftover turkey pizza

I LOVED this leftover pizza recipe that I found on last year.  It was so good, that I am really looking forward to Friday, when I can make it again.  The picture does not do it justice, so just take my word that it tastes better than it looks. 

the crust of a lefover turkey pizza

The crust is made from a tube of crescent rolls.  Last year I used the one piece roll.  Either way works just fine.  Just seal the seams if needed.   Bake the crust for 7-9 minutes at 425 degrees before adding the other ingredients. 

Adding the ingredients to leftover turkey pizza

The recipe calls for leftover cranberry sauce, but since no one in my family likes it, I used Smuckers Black Cherry topping. It might sound odd, but it is GOOD!  I left the corner free of stuffing( I used Stove Top)  in this picture, because my youngest daughter is not a big fan of stuffing.

Adding more ingredients to leftover turkey pizza

I then added a layer of shredded leftover turkey.

Adding the cheese on top of the leftover turkey pizza

After the turkey, I added  a layer of cheddar cheese.  We love cheese in my family, so I added a lot. 

Bake the pizze for 6-10 more minutes at 425 degrees  to warm the ingredients, and melt the cheese.   Leftover turkey pizza is a great way to have variety when eating up those wonderful Thanksgiving leftovers.  It is so good, you will want to make it even  when you don't have leftovers.  In that case, you can just add shredded chicken in place of the turkey.
