Turkey Dinner Leftovers

You know, like most people who aren't vegetarians, I love a turkey dinner.  Sure, it is a big production, but in the end, it is so worth it (It is even more worth it when you have said dinner at parents house, because it always tastes SO much better).  But, as with all turkey dinners, there is usually a plethora of leftovers.  And not just of the bird, but of potatoes, veggies, gravy stuffing...well, you get the picture.  So I came up with a creative way of presenting these leftovers to make them exciting.  I call in my turkey dinner pizza.  It may seem a little odd, but it is a big hit in my little household.  Here is what you will need (well, really, what you need is just what is leftovers, but this is what I like):

2 Thin crust flat bread pizza crusts
1 large onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic
One large potato, cooked and thinly sliced
2-3 cups of shredded pizza mozzarella
Lots of ripped apart turkey
cooked carrots
(Anything else you may have)

Take all of the leftovers out of the fridge and let sit for about half an hour to bring to room temperature.  In the mean time, saute the onions and the garlic until they caramelize then remove from heat.  On the flat breads, spread a thin layer of the gravy over them.  This acts as your tomato sauce.  Top with the potato slices, stuffing, turkey, broccoli, corn, carrots, onions (the previous in any particular order you wish) then top with generous amounts of cheese.  Toss the pizzas in a baking sheet or pizza stone and put in an oven set at 350 degreesF for about 10-15 minutes - until the cheese is nice and melting a bubbly and everything is nice and hot on the inside.  When it is done, warm up any left over gravy you have and drizzle over top of the pizza.


-The reason I made two pizzas in the first place was to put mushroom on one of them.  Apparently it made the pizza that much better, but I fail to see how

-Really, put on anything you like, it will taste awesome.  If you are the people to have a ham as well (my parents are) add in some ham cubes to the pizza.

Enjoy!  Until next time,
