Will you likely have leftover turkey and sides from holiday meals? 🍴
Get your family excited to gobble them up AGAIN with this creative and easy to make pizza idea! It’s a crowd pleasing meal that’s easy to adapt to your family’s taste and leftovers! I’ve used a store bought crust for convenience, but you could always make your favorite type of dough, including our popular Keto Fathead Pizza Crust if you’re doing the low carb thing.
This recipe adds cheese to mashed potatoes as a delicious base for the pizza. Mix in a little cream or milk to make them spreadable, and consider seasoning with garlic powder or even some ranch seasoning for extra flavor.
Roll stuffing into one inch balls for a creative presentation and consider adding crunchy onions for a yummy topping!
Holiday Turkey Leftovers Pizza
Have turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing leftovers? Make an easy and delicious delicious pizza with them! For real.
- 1 pound pizza dough (I used Pillbury's Best that comes rolled in parchment paper)
- 3/4 cup mashed potatoes
- 2 teaspoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or any desired seasonings
- 3/4 cups cheese, divided (I mixed Parmesan and mozzarella)
- 1/2 cup green bean casserole
- 3/4 cup shredded turkey meat
- 1 cup prepared stuffing
- 1/4 cup cranberry sauce or salad
- 1/4 cup gravy
- 1/4 cup crispy fried onions
Roll out refrigerated dough onto a cookie sheet or pizza stone.
Bake pizza dough for about 4-5 minutes at 450 degrees until slightly golden brown.
Mix milk and mashed potatoes with 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture. Add any additional seasonings like salt, pepper, or even a little garlic powder if desired.
Spread the mashed potato mixture over the crust.
Top with shredded turkey, and green been casserole.
Roll teaspoon sized stuffing into balls and place on pizza.
Top with cranberry sauce, remaining cheese, crispy fried onions, and drizzle with gravy.
Return pizza to the oven and bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 more minutes, at 450 degrees.

My family enjoyed this spin on leftovers!
Remember this is just a suggestion. You can design your own pizza with holiday leftovers in your fridge. I think a turkey and pesto version would be yummy also! Or maybe even a ham and cheese pizza. I hope this inspires some creative holiday leftover meals!
Merry Christmas, Lina! Looking forward to new recipes in the new year.

Not sure how mashed potatoes taste on a pizza but I’m willing to try it out!
Ha thanks Belle!
I travel quite a bit and my fav Cedar Rapids pizza joint is Need Pizza. They have a killer mashed potato pizza!!!
Awesome! We have a place that does a really yummy red potato pizza near us!
Nope. All the nope.
But to all you who like this. Go you! I can’t judge. My favorite sandwich is peanut butter, jelly, and Cheetos.
This actually looks pretty tasty!
Interesting recipe. I would love to try it. Delish!
