The dishes are done, you are wearing your stretchy pants…now, what to do with all those leftovers?!  This recipe is my all time FAVORITE way to use leftover turkey.  Honestly, in the days leading up to Thanksgiving I was looking forward to this leftover dish as much as the big turkey with all the fixings!  You simply have to try it with your leftover turkey this year.  Plus, it is a great pizza to enjoy while watching football this weekend.  (My dad says, “Go Bears!“)

1 can (19 ounces) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4  teaspoon red pepper flakes
16 ounce prepared pizza crust
1-1/2 cups chopped cooked turkey
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 cup sliced oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1-1/2 cups thinly sliced fresh spinach
3/4 cup shredded provolone cheese

Additional olive oil for drizzling

1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Place beans, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes in a food processor; process until smooth.  If mixture is not spreadable enough, add a little more olive oil.  Spread bean mixture evenly over pizza crust.
2. Scatter turkey over bean mixture.  Sprinkle on in order, the rosemary, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and cheese.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are golden.  Drizzle a little olive oil over pizza and serve.  Serves 4-6.
