I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Garlicky White Pizza with Turkey

A change from regular all dressed tomato sauce pizza, and bonus, you can use that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Or plan ahead to use some leftover turkey from Christmas. Don't have any leftovers?  Just cook up a chicken breast or two.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup 10% cream
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsps flour
Salt, pepper and a pinch or 2 of chili flakes
1  1/2 cups chopped leftover turkey or chicken
3/4 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup shredded parmesan or romano
1 cup sliced mushrooms
a few sliced onions
a sprinkle of oregano
basil leaves 

your favourite pizza dough or this one, my favourite

Heat oil and butter in pan and add garlic. Brown very lightly.
Whisk 2 tbsps flour into the cream and milk and add salt, pepper and chili flakes. Continue whisking as you add it to the pan. Cook a few minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.

Once you have your pizza dough ready in the pan spoon on the sauce. Top with turkey, cheddar, parmesan and mushrooms. Add some onion slices and sprinkle with oregano. 

Pop it in a 500 F oven for 11 minutes. Remove and finish with a few basil leaves.  I didn't have any fresh but did have some I had put away in oil using this method:

Let it sit a few minutes before cutting. Hope you like it!
