What You’ll Need
These easy naan pizzas are made with just a handful of ingredients, most of which are Thanksgiving leftovers.
(Scroll below to the printable recipe card for details and measurements.)
- Naan flatbreads: You can grab some at the store or use our Naan Bread recipe.
- Turkey breast: Leftover Thanksgiving turkey is perfect for this!
- Cranberry sauce: Our homemade cranberry sauce serves as the pizza sauce. Canned is fine, too – ideally the whole berry kind.
- Mozzarella: Freshly shredded mozzarella off the block is the best option, as the packaged kind has less flavor and doesn’t melt as well.
- Brie cheese: Remove the rind and the slice it thinly.
- Red onion: For a subtle sweet and peppery flavor.
- Orange zest: The flavor or orange always pairs well with cranberry.
- Fresh thyme: This herb adds a nice touch of flavor.
