That sounds like the title to a funny children’s story. The key word here is “inspiration.”
The beauty of a plain and simple cheese pizza is that it is versatile and can inspire many creative, easy-to-prepare and hearty meals for morning, noon and night. In a previous recipe, we transformed a small cheese pizza into a Quiche. Sometimes, like today, it stands alone as a tasty addition to a wholesome dish.
The Holiday season offers many opportunities to be creative with food. We thought you might enjoy a dish to make with that delicious leftover turkey. It can be served year round as well, of course. This recipe will serve 4. Enjoy.
