Leftover Christmas Dinner Pizza

**This is a Sponsored Post **


I’ve been challenged by the Lean On Turkey campaign to create a quick and easy recipe to use up leftover Christmas turkey that costs under £10.

We waste as little as possible in our house so when we’ve had a roast turkey or chicken I always strip off any leftover meat, wrap well and freezer it ready to be used later.

I decided to combine some cooked turkey with some readily available store cupboard/fridge ingredients to make a super quick and tasty supper. 

I used a ready-made and ready rolled pizza base, some good quality pesto from a jar, frozen mixed vegetables (or you could use leftover roast vegetables) and grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese.  It was a deliciously quick family meal that was devoured enthusiastically and happily by my family on a very busy week night. Result!

Leftover Christmas Dinner Pizza

1 ready-made pizza base - £1.30
2 Tblsp green or red pesto - 30p
200g - 300g frozen mixed vegetables, defrosted - or use leftover roast vegetables - 30p
200g - 300g leftover roast turkey or chicken - free
100g - 150g grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese - £1

Preheat oven to 220C/200C Fan.  Arrange the pizza base on a lined baking tray.  Spread with pesto then sprinkle over the vegetables, turkey and cheese.  Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.  Job done!
