WILD PIZZA DOUGH
2-3 tbsp Salt
WILD PIZZA DOUGH (1 hour)
Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, bread flour (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky) and salt together. Knead the dough for 30 seconds, flour lightly as needed.
Place the wild dough in a lightly floured bowl and cover with a towel, set aside for 1 hour. (The pizza steel or stone needs to preheat for 1 hour as well, so preheat oven to 550 degrees F° after you finish making your pizza dough).
Defrost and pat dry turkey. Remove giblets and neck. In large cooking pan, butter up the bird, inside and out. Season with salt and pepper. Bake @ 350° F. 13 minute per pound (13 lb. turkey will take approx. 2 hr. 45min.). Remove from oven, ensure internal temperature is 165° F. and let rest covered 30-60 minutes.
Carefully remove turkey from pan and place on cutting board. Carve off a few pieces of breast meat, and remove pone of the turkey legs. Remove meat from turkey leg and chop with breast meat. Set aside 2 cups of chopped turkey.
Wash carrot, brussel sprouts and green beans. Peel carrot and dice. Remove ends from green beans and chop. Trim the bottoms of the brussel sprouts and quarter.
Add vegetables to a steamer, add 1 tbsp. water, cover with lid and microwave 3 minutes. Carefully remove steamer from microwave. Carefully remove lid and add butter, salt and pepper. Close lid a couple minutes to allow butter to melt, then remove lid and mix well. Reserve 1 cup of vegetable medley.
In large saucepan, heat 2 tbsp. of butter and 1 cup water to boil. Add stovetop stuffing mix and turn off heat. Cover for 5 minutes. Remove cover and fluff with a fork. Reserve 1/2 cup stuffing.
In a large sauce pan, strain 1 cup turkey drippings from roasting pan. Turn on heat to medium and bring to a boil.
In a small bowl mix 1 tbsp. cornstarch with cold water. Mix well. Add to turkey drippings.
Reduce gravy on medium heat until desired consistency, remove from heat and let cool. Reserve 1/2 cup of turkey gravy.
Preheat oven to 550 degrees F° with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
Grate mozzarella cheese.
Flour surface and roll out the dough, flour lightly as needed. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough.
Add gravy, mozzarella cheese, stuffing, vegetable medley and turkey. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
Bake pizza in the oven at 550° F. for 8-10 minutes.
