Holiday Leftover Pizza

Sometimes, your typical weeknight leftovers get a bad rap, but that’s not the case for holiday leftovers. The favorite foods we share with our family and friends over Thanksgiving such as mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing, and even cranberry sauce are the best comfort food, and we’re always reaching for seconds on the big day. But what about when you have plenty left in the fridge to do something with? Our answer is to make a holiday leftover pizza!

Use your go-to pizza dough as the base, top with cheddar mashed potatoes, and add all of your fixings. You’ll end up with a unique twist on a classic pizza pie with all the flavors and delicious textures of your holiday favorites.

Pumpkin Pie Crisp

No holiday dinner is complete without pumpkin pie – and don’t forget plenty of whipped cream! But after a few pieces of pie, you may be looking for a way to spruce up the old classic. This quick and easy recipe uses leftover pumpkin pie as the base. It’s then topped with a cinnamon sugar streusel topping, baked until golden, and served with dreamy caramel sauce.

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


Step 1: Make the Topping

In a small bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix in the melted butter with a fork until small clumps form.

Step 2: Mash Up Leftover Pumpkin Pie

Put any leftover pumpkin pie in a bowl and mash it with a fork. Grease the cast iron skillet with cooking spray and spread the pumpkin pie in the pan. Sprinkle the streusel on top.

Once baked, remove the pumpkin pie crisp from the pizza oven. Dish it up, drizzle with caramel sauce, and serve with whipped cream or ice cream. 

Leftover Holiday Ham & Swiss Sliders

Holiday dinners often highlight a delicious ham as the star of the show. But what about once the holiday has passed and there are plenty of slices to use up in the fridge? Enter: meaty, cheesy sliders!

These little sandwiches are piled high with ham and Swiss. They’re then topped with a tangy mustard sauce for great flavor before being baked in the Pi Prime pizza oven. Make a batch to reinvent your holiday leftovers in the most delicious way.
