Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - First there were frozen turkey dinners, gravy in a jar, then microwavable lutefisk. Now Ole and Lena have turned to the Italians for help with the Thanksgiving Day meal.

Just hours before most Turkeys are going in the oven. Holly Cleary is turning out another holiday pizza.

At Ole and Lena's Pizzeria at West Acres, the big feature this week is, you guessed it, a Thanksgiving meal pizza, for real.

Turkey and gravy, stuffing and mashed potatoes, corn.

Shane Balken, Ole and Lena’s Pizzeria: “We have a lot of strange looks at first then we say you know what, give it a shot and nine times out of 10 they like it.”

We even had a taste tester of our own. Alex Amiot of Fargo was sitting in the Food Court.

Alex Amiot, Fargo: “This is better than lefse. It is pretty good. The toppings, it all works together.”

And so you have to wonder what a couple of Norwegians like Ole and Lena think of Italian Thanksgiving pizza.

For pumpkin pie, you are on your own. But you have to give Ole and Lena credit for some Scandinavian entrepreneurship. Nothing like turkey dinner and cold pizza for breakfast. That's leftovers

Ole and Lena's will be open early at the mall the day after Thanksgiving, to serve breakfast pizza and their famous turkey and stuffing pizza.
