Turn your leftover Christmas or Thanksgiving turkey into a BBQ Pulled Turkey Pizza. It’s easy to make, so delicious, and perfect for when you've spent the last couple of days eat holiday dinner leftovers. You will LOVE it.
Place your pizza stone (if using) in your oven, on the middle rack, and turn your oven to 500 degrees, or as high as it will go.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the pineapple, red onion, cilantro, lime and Serrano pepper.
1 ½ cups diced fresh pineapple, ¼ cup minced red onion, ¼ cup chopped cilantro, Juice from ½ lime, ½ Serrano or jalapeno pepper
Follow the directions for the pizza dough by carefully stretching the dough to form an oval or rough circle. Either place the pizza crust on an upside-down baking sheet or on your pizza peel if you're using a pizza stone.
Mix the shredded turkey with ½ cup of your favorite BBQ sauce. Divide the remaining ¼ cup of BBQ sauce between the two pizzas. Top with the shredded turkey, mozzarella cheese, and a sprinkle of sea salt.
1 ½ cups shredded cooked turkey, 1 ball mozzarella cheese
Bake the pizzas, one at a time, in your oven for 10 minutes if you are using a baking sheet, or 7 minutes if you are using a pizza stone. When the turkey pizza comes out of the oven, sprinkle the pineapple salsa over top.
This pizza dough recipe is my all-time favorite. It does take 18 hours for the dough to rise, so if you use it do plan accordingly.
