Cranberry Pizza for Thanksgiving

Happy National Cranberry Day, Beautiful People (!


Dear Beautiful People, I am cheating! I don’t have a step-by-step set of photographs of this crazy creation because I’ll assemble it tomorrow, right before serving. All I have is my cranberry sauce, ready for tomorrow. However, I promised a recipe for Cranberry Pizza, so here it is, in case you want to spend a few minutes to surprise your guests with a funky Thanksgiving dessert. It is really easy.


  • 2 ripe mangoes
  • 1 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy whipped cream
  • Blueberries to garnish


  • Make cranberry sauce the consistency of pizza sauce. If using store bought sauce, add a shot of rum and bring to boil. Simmer until thickens. Stir occasionally. Let cool off.
  • Peel and slice mangoes, arrange on serving platter. This is your pizza crust.
  • Spread  cranberry sauce on top of mango slices. This is your tomato sauce.
  • Spread non-dairy whipped cream on top of cranberry sauce. This is your cheese.
  • Throw blueberries on top. They are your olives.
  • Use your imagination and dazzle your guests.

Happy Thanksgiving – enjoy!

    You got me on this one, Dolly! I was expecting a dressing crust, then thin layer of cranberries with slices of turkey on top, sealed off with mashed spuds with a brushing of gravy! I’m going to experiment with this. We used to make turkey and cranberry and dressing sandwiches on my mothers big bread rolls on Thanksgiving night and for days afterwards. I miss them more than the traditional meal. Ha.

    1. I know how it feels, to miss family holidays and post-holidays…
      I have never learned to eat – or make! – sandwiches, and I don’t do gravy; instead, my turkey is cooked in red wine sauce. As you see, my “traditional” meal is still not quite traditional. Have a very happy Thanksgiving, Judy!


  5. You got me. I actually thought it was pizza but this sounds so much more appealing!

    With this short post and easy recipe, I am starting a week of preparation for Thanksgiving. Most of my Thanksgiving recipes will be repeats, but perhaps you’ll find something new and interesting, Beautiful People. Enjoy!
