Thanksgiving Pizza

The Ultimate Thanksgiving Bite


his is the ULTIMATE Thanksgiving leftovers meal. This Thanksgiving pizza has the best of it all. In every single bite.  Thin crust pizza layered with tart cranberry sauce, covered in shredded turkey, then a layer of savory stuffing and finally smothered with cheddar cheese and of course, gravy! I don’t think it gets much better than this.

This Thanksgiving pizza made it’s first debut at a Friendsgiving party where I had never made anything like it before. I remember it clearly, that night when Thanksgiving pizza first came into our lives. Everyone was gathered around the fire pit talking and laughing and I disappeared into the kitchen to attempt to make what I called an experiment. I returned 15 minutes later with my first Thanksgiving pizza.  Well, that first pizza is still being talked about today!

This Thanksgiving pizza is packed with all the flavors of your favorite Thanksgiving dishes so that every bite, really is the best bite! Even better, it’s so simple and a really fun way to use up those leftovers. I’ll tell you now, plan to make two because it’s really good!

Feaster's Tip:

I like to use Stonefire pizza crust for this. It’s a thin crust, but more like a flatbread so it can hold up to the ingredients. If you can’t find Stonefire, just be sure to choose a flatbread crust that can support the amount and type of ingredients.
