Picture of Turkey Pizza with Cranberry Sauce
What do you do with that last little bit of Christmas Turkey, not enough to make a hot turkey sandwich, and it is cold outside so you want something warm and soothing.

I had planned to make omelettes for supper and use up the last of the turkey. My husband said - what about Turkey Pizza - I thought he was crazy, but I'm always game to try something new and different.

Step 1: Making the Pizza Dough

Picture of Making the Pizza Dough
I make my pizza dough in my bread maker on the dough setting.  I started making homemade pizza 8 months ago, and have not bought a pizzeria pizza since.  I like the home made one way too much.

This is the recipe for the dough.

3 1/2 cups unbleached bread flour
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast.

Put the water, honey, olive oil and salt in the  bread maker first.  Put in the flour, poke a little well in the flour, and add the yeast.

Turn  the breadmaker  on to the dough setting  - mine takes 1 1/2 hours.

Step 2: Gathering the Ingredients

The dough recipe makes 2 - 12" pizza's

For each pizza

2 cups of Stretchy  low moisture mozzarella ( I use Kraft extra Stretchy)
1/2 cup pasta sauce - any flavour or brand you prefer
corn meal for the pizza stone
Olive oil to brush the dough.
Toppings for the pizza's

Turkey - chopped and shredded - 1/2 cup per pizza
black olives sliced - 1/4 cup per pizza
red and green peppers chopped - 1/2 cup per pizza
mushrooms sliced - 1 cup per pizza
Hot peppers - if you like - about 1/8 cup per pizza ( I put them on 1/2 the pizza for my husband).

i'm confused (easy for me to be so lol), was the cranberry sauce on the side? i don't see it listed in the ingredients.

Yes the cranberry sauce was on the side, leftover from Christmas Dinner.

If you don't have any freshly made cranberry sauce, you could always used canned (myself - I will make the cranberry sauce)
