Preparation Requires:

  • A pizza stone
  • A round pizza cutter
  • A spatula

Ingredients:

  • 5oz. Pizza dough (basic pizza recipe)
  • 3oz. Roast turkey meat
  • 2oz. Traditional thanksgiving day stuffing
  • 2oz. Sweet potato puree
  • 2oz. Cranberry sauce
  • 2oz. Turkey gravy
  • .5oz. Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Set oven with pizza stone at 400°F.Press out pizza dough until it reaches 9 inches in diameter. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil.
  • Place dough in on stone in oven. If you don't have a pizza stone a flat baking pan will do. Just remember to grease it with a little olive oil so the dough doesn't stick.
  • Bake for 4 minutes and let rise slightly; the dough should not brown at this stage.
  • Take the dough from the oven and slice in half with a bread knife.
  • Smear one half with sweet potato puree and the other with cranberry sauce.
  • Building from the sweet potato side, add the stuffing and spread evenly. Pile on the turkey and drizzle with gravy.
  • Close the pizza with the cranberry sauce side and slightly press down.
  • Place back in the oven for 3 minutes and let brown slightly.
  • Remove from oven and cut into 6 equal sized pieces.
