Do you need some fresh ideas for all of those Thanksgiving leftovers? You can easily mix and match your leftovers to create a delicious Thanksgiving inspired pizza! In our house we love a good Thanksgiving leftover sandwich, but after a few days we are always looking to mix things up and transform the same flavors into something new and exciting.

This recipe is inspired by McCormick Simply Better Turkey Gravy. You can always count on McCormick to provide quality products and their Simply Better Turkey Gravy is no exception. It’s made with real and flavorful ingredients, like hearty stock, vegetables and McCormick herbs and spices. Instead of a traditional pizza sauce, we’re using McCormick Simply Better Turkey Gravy as our base. You can also use a McCormick Turkey Gravy packet. Simply mix it up according to the package directions. Spread an even layer onto an unbaked pizza crust.

What kind of pizza crust should I use?

You can use a prepared homemade crust, canned roll out dough, or any other kind of ready to bake pizza crust to make this recipe. Baking your pizza on a pizza stone will provide the best results with the crispiest crust.

Which Thanksgiving leftovers will work best on this pizza?

This recipe specifically uses a gravy sauce and is topped with leftover turkey, leftover mashed potatoes, leftover stuffing, and leftover cranberry sauce. Other leftover ideas can be mixed and matched to create fun flavor combinations. Leftover sweet potato casserole could provide a fun sweet addition. Leftover vegetables can be added as well.

Rachel, what a great idea! Only thing, seems like really small amounts of mashed and stuffing. Did you try larger amounts and find it too sogifying?
