Barbecue Turkey Flatbread Pizza

Have plans for that leftover turkey?  Here’s just the thing, repurpose it by making this scrumptious flatbread pizza topped with a quick and easy barbecue ranch sauce that’s just perfect for an appetizer or light meal.

Barbecue Turkey Flatbread Pizza

This recipe will give leftover turkey a face lift and no one will ever know.  The thin flatbread gets nice and crispy when baked and the toppings have a delicious southwestern flare to them.

Once out of the oven this wonderful combination of flavors gets even better with fresh cilantro and drizzles of barbecue ranch sauce.  So good.

This pizza is made with a southwestern flare to it and I can’t help but think of a girlfriend of mine when I made it.

She’s from Pennsylvania and was living in California for a while.  Whenever we would go out to lunch together (in California) she would always say that everything in California has corn in it.

The sound of her voice was so funny because it had the tone of being absolutely amazed and astonished. She would go on and on about how she couldn’t even order a salad without corn in it.

It was so funny to me because I think she was a corn magnet.  She was right, no matter where we would go to eat there was corn either in the recipe or as a garnish on the plate.

It’s actually something I hadn’t noticed before but it made me laugh every time she said it because it was so true.  I can still hear her voice saying that and I’m laughing at this very moment as I write this.

You know I thought of her with every corn kernel I put on this pizza.  The least I could have done was grill the corn before putting it on this pizza in honor of my friend.

So let’s check out the ingredients.
