Day After Thanksgiving Pizza (That Doesn’t Contain Turkey)

Written by , Posted in Thoughts

The big meal day is over. But you have a lot leftover, don’t you? We do. And I might offer to make either Thanksgiving Soup or Spicy Turkey Chili. Tomorrow. Tonight, it’s Pizza Friday!

Last week, on Pizza Friday, I was tired, I’d been cooking for most of the afternoon, and I didn’t feel like coming up with a creative pizza. Plus, I didn’t have any dough made. I know, poor me. So, after taking a break to look at Instagram, where I spotted my friend, Lisa’s, pizza creation that looked like it had peppers on it, I thought that maybe I’d just do a simple pepper pizza with cheese. I had some French bread dough rising, so I stole a bit and used it for the crust.

This was a good idea. This was a very good idea. Husband said it was his favorite crust that I’d made in a long time. I had to agree. It was thin, crispy, but also a bit chewy, and so delicious!

In case you need a one meal break from turkey, here’s my simple recipe. Sorry I don’t have a photo of the pizza. We were hungry and I didn’t think it would be so good it would warrant a blog post. I should know better by now. Always, always, always take a photo. 🙂

Happy Eating!
