Thanksgiving Pizza: Mix Up Your Traditional Dinner
Posted In: Food | Posted By: Brit
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, primarily because it involves nothing more than eating (oh and, um, giving thanks). Now, I don’t want to mess with anyone’s style here - I know how uptight people are about their traditional Thanksgiving meals - but I just made Thanksgiving In A Pizza, and it was quite delicious. Yes, it could be a fun way to mix things up at your house this year; but, if that’s too much too soon for you, consider it a new idea for eating leftovers.
- One can of crescent rolls
- Mashed potatoes
- Chopped turkey
- Shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350-degrees, then unroll crescent rolls and break into four squares (two crescent triangles in each square).
- Roll the squares into balls and, with your fingers, begin kneeding and flattening into a pizza crust shape. I found it was easier to do this if, once semi-flat, I laid it directly onto the pan to stretch. Your final crust should be about 4-5” in diameter.
- Spread mashed potatoes over each crust.
- Top mashed potatoes with your chopped turkey meat.
- Spoon stuffing on top of the turkey (optional to combine steps 4 & 5 and mix stuffing with turkey before topping).
- If you are so inclined, sprinkle some shredded cheese on top. (It’s still delicious without the cheese as well.)
- Cook for ~20 minutes at 350 degrees or until edges are golden brown. Different types of crescent rolls/biscuits may call for different cooking times. I had to double what they suggested on my package since there were essentially two rolls/pizza.
- Once cooked, top with warm gravy and serve.
This is also a great recipe if you’re alone this year, or your kids are picky about their Thanksgiving dinner. I didn’t even pre-make any of these ingredients - I purchased them from the hot food bar at Whole Foods. It cost me about $15 for everything, which ended up enabling me to make four delicious mini pizzas to enjoy. And yes, my stomach was thankful.
