Thanksgiving pizza

Do you need a good way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers? Here’s a quick and easy recipe to make a dent into the food stashed in your fridge.

I used a left over frozen pie shell from Thanksgiving, but you could easily use a premade pizza crust or make your own. Preheat oven to 350F. Mix 3 tablespoons each of spicy dijon mustard, low-fat mayo and honey in a bowl. Sprinkle in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Mix. Cube or shred about 2 cups left over turkey. Toss with mustard sauce until well coated.

Spread turkey mixture out evenly on crust. Sprinkle with a little pepper.

Top with 3-4 sliced mushrooms. Top with about a half cup of left over stuffing.

Top with swiss cheese (or provolone or mozzarella if you prefer).

Bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.

Dip in cranberry sauce, if you like.

This pizza is surprisingly delicious. It has a lot of flavor and feels a lot lighter than normal pizza, making it the perfect meal for the day after stuffing yourself.
