Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Pizza - A delicious different way to cook with Thanksgiving leftovers. The zesty cranberry barbecue sauce is fantastic!

We’re sharing the last (at least for this year) 😉 of our Thanksgiving leftovers recipes today – and I have to say, I think we’ve saved one of the best for last! This Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Pizza is fantastic!

Instead of tomato sauce, this pizza uses our smoky cranberry barbecue sauce as the base for all of the delicious toppings including cooked turkey, sliced red onion, shaved Brussels sprouts and  shredded cheese.

Our Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Pizza is savory with a kick of sweet-tart cranberry flavor.  After eating a big, rich Thanksgiving meal, this crispy pizza is a welcome break from all of those heavier foods!  But it’s still a great way to use up some of that leftover turkey and other vegetables in the fridge.
