Ingredients

  • 1 store bought pizza dough
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups cranberry bbq sauce (recipe to follow)
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shaved brussels sprouts
  • 1-1/2 cups dark turkey meat, chopped
  • 6-8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled, fat reserved
  • 2 cups smoked cheddar, grated

Cranberry BBQ sauce:

  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 3/4 cup leftover cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dijon
  • 1 tablespoon dehydrated minced onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 500°
  2. To begin, take the pizza dough out of the fridge and let it rest, out of the plastic bag and in a large bowl coated in two tablespoons of olive oil, for at least an hour.
  3. About 20 minutes before the dough has finished resting begin to make the cranberry BBQ sauce (recipe and method below) and prepare the onions and brussels sprouts. To a large skillet over medium high heat add reserved bacon fat, sliced onions and shaved brussels sprouts. Cook for five to six minutes or until the onions have become translucent and the brussels sprouts have wilted. Set aside.
  4. Pour olive oil onto a 13x18 inch sheet pan and spread it out, covering the whole pan. Place the rested dough in the middle of the pan and, using your finger tips, gently stretch the dough out to meet the sides of the pan. If the dough continues to spring back, let it rest another 15 minutes before stretching again.
  5. Once the dough has been stretched, pour the cranberry bbq sauce over top and spread it out evenly. Scatter pieces of turkey, crumbled bacon and the onion brussels sprouts mixture over the bbq sauce. Cover with grated smoked cheddar and place in the oven on the bottom rack and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Remove the pizza from the oven and let it rest for five minutes and enjoy!
