  • Stretch out your pizza dough to a 12-inch circle.
  • Top with a layer of mashed potatoes, followed by the cheese, then turkey, and dollops of chutney.
  • Bake in the Solo Pi pizza oven at 850-900F for 2-3 minutes until crisp. If using an indoor oven, bake at 500F for ~7 minutes or until crisp.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
