Leftover Turkey and Pear Pizza Recipe

Leftover Turkey & Pear Balsamic Pizza

  • Author: Brandie Valenzuela


This Easy Leftover Turkey and Pear Pizza recipe uses leftover Thanksgiving turkey, sliced pears, mozzarella cheese and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar for a delicious appetizer or meal. This recipe also features an easy pizza crust that requires only two ingredients.


  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 cup cooked turkey, cubed
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar or balsamic vinegar glaze/reduction (more or less depending on preference)


  1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, add yogurt and flour, mix well. The mix will seem to be dry at first but will come together. Knead the dough with your hands until blended well.
  3. Roll dough onto a floured surface until about 9″ x 13″ in size.
  4. Sprinkle corn meal onto parchment paper and transfer your dough to the paper.
  5. Top with cheese and turkey and heat for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown.
  6. Top with pears and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Cut with a pizza cutter and enjoy.


–If you prefer, you can top your pizza with the sliced pears before baking.

–If you wish, you may want to drizzle this pizza with a balsamic vinegar glaze or reduction. You can make this yourself, but we enjoy a pre-made variety for convenience, such as Fini Balsamic Glaze or DeLallo Balsamic Glaze.

–Adding a light sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles right after baking would also be delicious.
