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!
