Instructions

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).

TURKEY

  • 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.

VEGETABLE MEDLEY

  • 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.

STOVETOP STUFFING

  • 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.

TURKEY GRAVY

  • 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.

PIZZA

  • 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.
  • Remove pizza from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Slice it up, then add 1 tbsp. of cranberry sauce to each slice.
