Leftover turkey + leftover cranberry sauce = pizza night, of course.
I’ve always preferred to reimagine my turkey leftovers into non-Thanksgiving fare – like Turkey Cranchiladas or Turkey and Chorizo Hash – and this pizza fits right in. The cranberry sauce gives you a slightly sweet, slightly tart edge to your barbecue sauce – and it pairs awesome with the turkey and cheese.
This is a great dish to make at the end of the weekend when your turkey and stuffing sandwiches are getting tired!
