Turkey “Pizzas”

Not really pizza but still yummy

Not really pizza but still yummy

This is a white pizza in the best possible way. The “sauce” is mashed potatoes. To really make things decadent, drizzle a bit of truffle oil over the top before serving. No need to worry about leftovers.

Turkey Pizza

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, or prepared pizza dough
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups chopped turkey, preferably white meat
  • 8 ounces mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup sherry or white wine
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 4 oz sliced brie
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • olive oil

Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and salt and pepper. Let cook for about three minutes, stirring often. Add sherry and let mushrooms cook a few minutes longer. Throw in spinach and allow to wilt. Once spinach is wilted and mushrooms are tender, remove from heat. The sherry should be evaporated. Roll out the pastry dough to about one and a half times its original size. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Heat the oven to 400. Spread the mashed potatoes into one layer on the dough. Spread the vegetable mix over it and then the turkey. Bake until the pastry is starting to get golden and the toppings are hot. Remove from oven and spread the brie on top. Return to oven to melt cheese. Once the cheese is melted and the pastry is golden brown, you’re good to go. Drizzle with truffle oil or sprinkle with cracked black pepper before serving.
