Cranberry Turkey Flatbread Pizza
Let’s give your turkey a leftover makeover and turn it into a delicious and simple lunch or dinner. Not only is this Cranberry Turkey Flatbread Pizza delicious, but it is also super simple to make. I am talking a prep time of only a few minutes.
Remember you don’t have to settle for another boring turkey sandwich! AND really who would want to with this simple recipe. It’s a great fun turkey leftovers option that will even get your kids excited about eating leftovers.
Grab some quality flatbreads from the bread or deli area of your local grocery store. You can also use Naan if traditional flatbread isn’t available.
For an extra twist, you can grab the garlic and herb flavored instead of classic. If you are on a restricted diet, you may even want to consider using some of the lightened versions that are 100 calories per flatbread. This recipe is definitely easy to adapt.
Spread your favorite cranberry sauce on the flatbread as the “sauce” for your flatbread pizza. We make ours homemade, but any canned or jarred variety will work just fine. Be as generous as you like. The more the better in my opinion, but if your kids aren’t big fans of cranberry sauce, spread just a bit to moisten the flatbread.
Top with your shredded or diced turkey leftovers, and cheese. To spice it up a bit, you can use some pepper jack cheese. I love the spicy cheese with the sweet and tart cranberry sauce. A mix of cheddar, jack, or mozzarella is all great choices as well. I choose whatever I happen to have on hand.
These are the perfect size to cook in a toaster oven for a fast snack, or to make several and bake on your favorite pizza stone for a delicious flatbread pizza lunch everyone will be begging for more of in the future.
