Yesterday, we feasted and we celebrated, we gave thanks and we spent time with family...we also went home with a boatload of Thanksgiving leftovers. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, all of the fixings. The perfect ensemble for a post-Thanksgiving day sandwich, a classic tradition.
This year, I figured why not skip the sandwich bread and make a pizza with my Thanksgiving leftovers? A post-Thanksgiving day pizza. Why bother with day old bread when I have the means for a fresh, warm crust? I fired up the oven and pre-heated my Baking Steel. The dough was made a few days before, using my go-to no knead recipe. I stretched out the dough, topped it with turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing. I slid the pizza onto my Baking Steel and closed the oven door. With just a minute left, I turned on the broiler. When it was ready, I pulled out my pizza and added cranberries and haricot vert. It looked simply beautiful.
Hands down, it was the best post-Thanksgiving day meal I have ever had. The Baking Steel offers such an even bake that the whole entire pizza was crisp and warm.
There are so many things that I am thankful for this year, my family being first. On that list is the Baking Steel and all of you. I am constantly blown away by all of the support and feedback we receive from our customers and the community we have been able to build, it all started on Kickstarter. Thank you for being a part of my journey and welcoming the Baking Steel into your homes.
Create Some Love,
One pizza dough
Thanksgiving leftovers, throw everything your heart desires on top.
1. Pre-heat oven at 500F on convection for 1 hour, with Baking Steel on the top rack
2. Stretch out dough to a 12 inch cylinder, any shape will do
3. Top with your leftovers and launch onto your hot Baking Steel
4. Bake for 4 minutes and switch oven to Broiler and broil for remaining 2 minutes until pizza is desired browness.
5. Remove from oven
Slice and serve. I only wish I had some leftover gravy to pour on top after bake.
