Deep Dish T-Day Leftovers Pizza

As prepared by Gourmet Mom,

Turkey Day has come and gone and if you’re anything like me, you have a fridge full of leftovers.

I always enjoy a good leftover turkey sandwich, but this year I wanted to make something a little fun and different to feed our hungry crowd.

A word of warning: if you are one of those people who doesn’t like any of their food touching each other (there’s one in every family!) then please ignore this post and go back to eating your leftovers.  If you’re a fan of eating your Turkey Day foods together, or enjoy shepherd’s pie and deep dish pizza, this Deep Dish Day After Thanksgiving Recipe is for you!

So grab your leftovers and a can of Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain and let’s rock & roll…

Thanksgiving Deep Dish Pizza Crust

Spread out your pizza crust in a deep dish pizza pan (a deep dish pie pan works great, too!).  Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.

Start layering your desired leftovers into your pre-baked crust.  We tried various combinations and our favorite was leftover stuffing first.

Finish with mashed potatoes.

A tip on leftover potatoes: if your mashed potatoes seem dry after refrigerating, add a little milk or butter, microwave for 60 seconds or so and stir well.


Thanksgiving Deep Dish Pizza bake in oven

After baking for 15 minutes, we topped the pie with some shredded cheese and baked for an additional 5 minutes.
