Turkey, Brie & Cranberry Pizza

I have a feeling I'm going to be making turkey more often after this leftover meal.  A nice crisp crust topped with some Thanksgiving leftovers plus brie and seasonings.

Turkey, Brie & Cranberry Pizza

1 thin crust ~ recipe below
6 oz Brie, rind removed
1 1/2 cups turkey, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup cranberry sauce
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp oregano

Roll out crust and place on a pizza stone.  Dot top of crust in this order ~
turkey pieces
cranberry sauce
red pepper flakes
mozzarella cheese

Bake at 425° for 14 minutes.

Pizza crust (makes 2) ~ recipe from Cook's Illustrated

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup canola oil

Place all of the ingredients, except for the canola oil, in a food processor with the chopping blade.  Pulse until mixed.  Switch to run and pour in canola oil and let the dough knead in the machine.  Remove dough and place on a lightly floured surface.  Knead for a couple minutes.  Cut in half (one half can be frozen for later use).  Let dough sit for about 20 minutes or so.  This will give you time to get the rest of your ingredients ready.  Roll out the dough and place on your pizza stone.
