Instructions for the Crispy Sage:
- Pour your oil into a small-medium-sized pan and heat at medium-high heat.
- Once the pan is hot, toss in your fresh sage. Cook until crispy, about 2-3 seconds (these are ready quick!)
- Transfer to paper towel and sprinkle generously with coarse salt.
Instructions for the Gluten-free Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza
- Preheat oven to 350 ℉.
- Place your frozen Little Northern Bakehouse pizza shell on a parchment-lined pizza or cookie pan.
- Pour mushroom gravy over the pizza and spread evenly over the crust with the back of a spoon. (As leftover gravy tends to be pretty thick straight from the fridge, heat briefly if needed to bring it up to a spreadable state.)
- Crumble your Violife feta by hand and evenly distribute.
- Add your cooked and diced squash along with any other Thanksgiving leftovers you’d like to use (try topping it with stuffing if you have it).
- Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until the edges of the crust turn golden.
- Remove from oven and top with arugula, crispy sage, dairy-free feta, and cranberry drizzle.
- Switch up arugula with other whatever greens you have on hand (baby spinach would be lovely).
- Don’t have leftover squash, yams, or sweet potato? Use fresh. Simply dice into ½-inch cubes and parboil/steam for 5 minutes or until slightly tender. Top your pizza and place it in the oven, you’re good to go.
- If using fresh squash, let your cubed squash soak in water for 30 minutes to soften and create the perfect cooked texture during the 15 minute bake time.
