Spinach and Turkey Tortilla Pizza with Sweet Potato Sauce

4 12 2013

More fun with leftovers coming right up! My husband described this dinner as Thanksgiving on a pizza, and that’s exactly what it tasted like thanks to the turkey and sweet potato flavors! Leftovers don’t have to be boring, you just have to find a way to re-purpose them into something spectacular. 🙂

Spinach and Turkey Tortilla Pizza with Sweet Potato Sauce

Spinach and Turkey Tortilla Pizza with Sweet Potato Sauce

The following serves 2 (compliments of This Girl’s Gotta Eat):

  • 1 leftover, cooked sweet potato/yam
  • Non-fat half and half
  • Half a bag of fresh spinach
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 whole wheat tortillas
  • Leftover Thanksgiving turkey, cubed
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Parsley for garnish

Preheat oven to 400.

Peel the leftover sweet potato, discard the skin and put the insides in a small saucepan. Heat the sweet potato over medium-low heat, stirring often so it doesn’t stick. Once warm, whisk in some half and half, a little at a time, until you get a thick, sauce-like consistency.

Meanwhile, saute the spinach in a little olive oil until wilted.

To build the pizzas, place two tortillas on a pizza stone or baking sheet. Spread some of the sweet potato sauce over each tortilla. Top with wilted spinach and cubed turkey. Next add a little mozzarella cheese.

Bake until the tortillas look almost cooked and the cheese starts to brown, about 10-12 minutes. Remove and add a little more cheese. Kick the oven up to a low broil and place the pizzas underneath until the cheese gets bubbly, just a few more minutes. Be careful not to burn them though!

Season with kosher salt just before serving and parsley for garnish. Serve with a salad.
