Delicious way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers! This Thanksgiving Leftovers Stromboli is easy and it allows you to relive your Thanksgiving feast but in a single bite without having to do much at all!
Why This Recipe Works
Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? We spent time with family and did our typical gorging on delicious food.
As always, we came home with containers packed with leftovers. I wanted to try something extra creative this year, so I wrapped the leftovers in dough to create a yummy Stromboli.
I will be making this every year. If you still have leftovers in your fridge, give it a try. If not, bookmark it for next year because it makes the next day(s) meal soooo easy! It’s a great way to make sure you enjoy every bite made from this holiday meal.

And an FYI: If you leave a comment on my website that contains the word “disgusting” or is written entirely in caps, it will get deleted. Thanks.
Pizza dough – Buy this dough frozen or in the refrigerator section. Or make a no yeast dough that can be made quickly.
Turkey – If there is leftover turkey from the big day, dark or white meat will work great. Just shred some up and add it to the dough.
Stuffing – This will add great flavor and texture with the other ingredients.
Mashed potatoes – Garlic mashed potatoes or just plain will both work!
Corn – Who doesn’t love a little corn topping all the Thanksgiving foods heaped on a plate? This can be sweet corn or creamed corn.
Cranberries – Whether they are cranberries from a can or they are prepared in the Instant Pot with fresh berries, this will add sweetness to the savory meal.
Gravy – There are many flavors of gravy and none are a bad choice here.

How To Make Thanksgiving Leftovers Stromboli
Thaw a 1-pound frozen round of pizza dough according to the package directions. Throw a bit of flour onto a flat surface and, using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle approximately the size of 14×10 inches.
Working parallel to the shortest sides, place rows of Thanksgiving leftovers onto the dough, keeping a 1-inch border on all sides.
Stuffing, turkey, Creamed Corn, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Cranberries and gravy…go crazy!
Fold the short ends over, followed by the long ends.
Starting at a short end, carefully roll into a log. Place the log onto a lightly oiled, parchment-lined baking sheet, seam side down. Brush melted butter over the dough.
Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Cut into thick slices and serve! This is so yummy!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Stromboli Recipe
- 1 lb frozen pizza dough thawed
- 3/4 cup cooked turkey shredded
- 3/4 cup stuffing prepared
- 3/4 cup mashed potatoes
- 3/4 cup corn
- 1/4 cup cranberries
- 1/4 cup gravy prepared
- 2 tbsp butter melted
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray.
- Lightly flour a work surface and using a rolling pin, roll dough into a 14×10-inch rectangle. Going parallel to one of the short sides, spread out rows of leftovers in 2-inch rows, leaving a 1-inch border around the dough edges on all sides. Drizzle with gravy.
- Fold 1 inch of dough over the filling on the short sides of the rectangle. Fold the long ends over the filling, pinching the dough together at the corners. Start rolling as tightly as possible into a log, starting at one of the short sides. Carefully place the log onto the prepared baking sheet, seam side down. Brush the dough with melted butter.
- Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven until the bread is golden. Loosen the bottom of Stromboli from the parchment paper with a spatula. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool. Cut into slices and serve.
Made this Stromboli! Very easy and fun! The dough inside stayed uncooked based on the time given for my oven so I had to put back in the oven!
I added cheese to mine too!
Thanks for the idea!!
Sometimes when I change the pan that I bake things in, they take longer to heat up, thus having to bake longer as well – especially if I use a stone. But I love my baking stones! Glad you enjoyed it – thanks for sharing!
