Leftover Turkey and R-Controlled Vowels

My hubby bought a deep fryer last week.  I have been telling him, "NO WAY!" for years but he convinced me with two simple words...turkey fryer. I caved.  I like turkey anyway but I LOVE fried turkey even more. So on Sunday, a couple days after said turkey fryer arrived, we fried up an 11 pound turkey just to test it out. It worked great and we ended up with plenty leftover turkey. What do you do with leftover turkey?  My family usually made turkey sandwiches or turkey soup but I am going to show you something totally different!

Thai Turkey Pizza
recipe adapted from Budget Bytes

pizza dough (not pictured)

For the sauce:
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4cup hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp. siracha
1 inch fresh, grated ginger
1/4 tsp of fresh garlic
1/4 cup hot water

For the toppings:
1 medium to large turkey breast (cooked and cubed)
1 - 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 small green bell pepper, sliced
2 green onions, sliced

More toppings after pizza is cooked:
chopped parsley
chopped peanuts
Parmesan cheese
remaining peanut sauce (thin it out with more water)
sweet chili sauce (not pictured)

You can use whatever pizza dough recipe you would like.  The original recipe from Budget Bytes calls for naan bread but I chose to use this recipe to make a quick pizza dough from Sugar Dish Me

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
(if you have a pizza stone let
that preheat in the oven)
Make the dough.
Make the sauce.
 Roll out the dough.
Spread the sauce.
Put on the toppings.
 Bake the pizza for 15 minutes.
Top with chopped peanuts, parsley, Parmesan cheese, remaining peanut sauce, and sweet chili sauce.
Cut and EAT!

 Now isn't that something different for Thanksgiving leftovers?!
