We’ve got a little tradition forming here. This is the second year in a row that we’ve eaten a turkey pizza for Thanksgiving. I’ve taken some photos during the cooking process to show you.

Thanksgiving is just like any old Thursday here in Spain. Through television, most Spaniards are aware of the dí­a de dar gracias in the US, but no one could tell you the “fourth Thursday in November” rule.

Mmmm!!  Turkey pizza!

Happy Thanksgiving!

When two pieces were left, I was already very full. Marga said, “We’re gonna finish it, right?” I figured that, in the spirit of the holiday, the “comfortably full” point should be pushed beyond. In a rare intersection between Spanish and American tradition, a post-pizza nap was called for.

  • gobble, gobble.

  • Nice work! We make pizza every Friday, and often have a boneless turkey breast around. We’ll have to try this particular combo.

    You know what additional topping would go really well with that combination? Gorgonzola.

  • You gorgonzealot!

  • The finished article looks great. You should trademark that recipe!

  • Pizzas from scratch are always better than bought ones.

    How does Marga handle you photographing every aspect of your life and blogging it?

  • Recipes aren’t exactly “every aspect of my life”, thank god.

  • Skip

    What does this have to do with Thanksgiving? So you used turkey instead of chichen in what looks like a fajita pizza.

  • Skip, Everyone has Turkey left over after Thanksgiving and sandwichs get boring, so why not make the leftovers a fun, casual snack or meal. It is a great idea
