Turkey Cranberry Flatbread

turkey-cranberryThe timing of this post isn’t the best since Thanksgiving was a few months ago, but I’m trying to get all of the recipes I had on Facebook onto here. There are only so many sandwiches you can eat from Thanksgiving leftovers before getting tired of them.

My inspiration was this Tastefully Simple recipe for a turkey cranberry flatbread pizza, but I wanted to do something that would use only ingredients I had on hand, so I made some changes.

Ingredients 

  • 1 package Bountiful Beer Bread mix (buy here)
  • ¾ cup hot water
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce
  • ¾ to 1 cup chopped turkey
  • ½ cup cooked, chopped bacon
  • ¼ cup sliced (super thin) red onion
  • ¾ cup Italian 4-cheese blend
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese

If you don’t have the 4-cheese blend, you could use a shredded mozzarella instead.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°.

Go here and follow the recipe for making the crust. Cut it in half if you can’t fit the entire thing on one baking sheet. I only used half of the dough and froze the other half for another flatbread experience. The proportions of ingredients above assume use of all of the dough.

Place on a baking sheet (either greased or with a silicone baking mat). Prick with a fork all over to prevent crust from puffing while baking. Bake for about 10 minutes until it’s a light golden brown color.

Spread the cranberry sauce on the crust as the base (like sauce would normally be). Sprinkle cheeses on top. Add turkey, bacon, and onion. Bake 10-12 minutes until cheese is melted and lightly browned.

If you used a silicone baking mat, don’t use the pizza cutter. You might be ok, but I wouldn’t want to take any chances in ruining the mat.
