Creating the Best Thanksgiving Leftover Pizza

So, your Thanksgiving feast is over and now you’re stuck with all these delicious leftovers. What’s next? You could make your annual Thanksgiving leftover sandwich, sure, but what about switching it up this year with pizza? Join us this month at Prosciutto’s Pizza as we dive into this Thanksgiving leftover pizza recipe!

What Leftovers Will Work Best?

We know it may sound a little daunting at first, but trust us on this one. Your typical leftovers are a great starting point for this recipe, like as leftover mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. However, other leftovers can be incorporated to create delicious flavor combos. You can use things like leftover vegetables, cheese, herbs, and even crispy bacon! The possibilities are endless to make it your own. In the meantime, here’s a guide on how to make it:


  • Pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
  • Leftover turkey (shredded or sliced)
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Stuffing
  • Cheese (Mozzarella, cheddar, or other preferences)
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Crispy bacon
  • Herbs and spices
  • Olive oil


  • Preheat your oven to 450°F (232°C) or follow the temperature specified on your pizza dough package.
  • Roll out your pizza dough to your desired thickness on a floured surface. Adjust the thickness according to your preference.
  • Brush the rolled-out dough with olive oil to ensure a golden and crispy crust.
  • Spread a generous layer of leftover gravy over the pizza dough as your sauce base.
  • Start with a layer of mashed potatoes, followed by stuffing, turkey slices, and cranberry sauce. Sprinkle your choice of cheese on top and use any other leftovers you prefer!
  • Season your pizza with a pinch of salt, freshly ground black pepper, and your preferred herbs and spices and then transfer the pizza to the oven.
  • Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and browned.
  • Once done, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes. Then slice and serve!
