Thanksgiving Turkey Stromboli

This recipe really may be the master of all leftover concoctions, and that’s not an easy title to earn! However, this stromboli really checks all of the right boxes that keeps it a step above the rest.

First off, it has it all! When you’re stressed about the amount of leftovers stocked up in your fridge, this stromboli is here to save the day, as it uses pretty much everything you’ve got on hand. I love making sure no leftovers go to waste, so this recipe is perfect for me.

It’s also such an easy dinner to whip up in no time flat. Since pretty much all of the ingredients are already made, all you have to do is assemble and bake this bad boy, and voila! You’ve just made a dinner that your family likely won’t stop raving about and asking for seconds of.

Of course, this dish is also perfect for Friendsgiving gatherings, neighborhood potlucks, and all other festivities when you need the perfect easy meal.

Because really, who wouldn’t love everything delicious about Thanksgiving all wrapped up in pizza dough?! If that sounds like a dream come true to you, just wait until you try it yourself. The way the pizza crust bakes with all of the other ingredients inside is so amazing, and the shredded swiss cheese makes everything perfectly cheesy without being too much.

Pizza dough has been covered in cheese, stuffing, turkey, and cranberry sauce.

How to Make It

Heat it up. Preheat oven to 425˚F.

Make it non-stick. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray OR sprinkle with cornmeal. The cornmeal prevents sticking and adds great texture to the stromboli once cooked. Don’t do both.

Roll it out. Lightly dust a work surface and roll the dough out to a large rectangle approximately 13×9 inches.

Spread out the ingredients. Spread the cranberry sauce evenly over the dough leaving about 1/2 inch around the edge. Layer the turkey over the sauce and then top with the stuffing. Sprinkle with the cheese and sprinkle with the 1/2 the pizza seasoning.

Roll it up. Roll the stromboli up jelly roll style. Tuck the ends inward and continue rolling until the stromboli is sealed.

Top with the final ingredients. Arrange the stromboli on the prepared baking sheet seam side down. Brush the top and sides with the egg. Sprinkle with the remaining Pizza Seasoning and parmesan.

Bake. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and crisp.

Enjoy! Rest the stromboli for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve with gravy, reheated, for dipping.

How long will leftover Thanksgiving turkey stromboli stay fresh?

In an airtight container in the fridge, any leftovers you have of this leftover-friendly dish will stay fresh for up to 3 days. However, take into consideration how long the leftovers are that the stromboli was made with and use your best judgement when storing it. To reheat the stromboli, pop it into an oven preheated at 350°F for approximately 10-15 minutes or until warmed through.

What kind of pizza crust should I use?

While any store-bought brand is fine, try using my super simple recipe for Thin Crust Pizza Dough! You’d be surprised at how quick and easy it is to whip up, and the difference it makes in this recipe. However, if you’re in a race with the clock, store-bought pizza dough will definitely get the job done.
