Turkey Mole Pizza

You know with lots of mole in my house, I just can't help but go crazy putting it on everything. 

My husband loves pizza- he is a total pizza conisseur.  He is of the NYC style pizza camp.  Me- I don't care- I like it but I am not totally in love with it.  When I made this pizza- he says, "what? you put mole on the pizza?" (how incredulous, how absurd!).

Yup, you guessed it, he loved it. It was one of the best tasting pizzas ever. How can it not be with a thing like mole? Although, some thinly sliced garden tomatoes really would have upped the ante.

Turkey Mole Pizza
Of course the measurements are totally up to your discretion.  Chicken would work beautifully here as well.  Turkey is what I had on hand.

1 cup shredded cooked turkey
1/2 cup mole
1/4 cup chiles
1 cup shredded mozarella
pizza dough

Form pizza round and slather the mole over top.  Sprinkly turkey all around and mozzarella over top.  Finally, spoon chiles around pizza. Bake at 475 F for about 15 minutes.

This is very creative, Lori. I, too, try to use all leftovers. My ideas aren't quite as creative as yours though. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

The pizza sounds good to me! If someone has preconceived ideas about pizza or are conservative, I'd just give this another name (avoiding the word pizza) and I'm sure they'd love it. ;)

Lori, you are truly creative. I'd never thought of putting Mexican flavor dish for pizza. What a fantastic idea.

I think everything tastes better with mole. What an awesome idea for a pizza topping!
