Fresh Vegetable Pizza

When I first saw this dish at Lovina's Mom's house I thought to myself that it was "pizza sacrilege."  Pizza is supposed to be hot, greasy, cheese, and saucy, right?  Well...not always....I tasted this vegetable pizza with an open mind and found it to be a very pleasant surprise.  I think this pizza tastes especially good at Lovina's because all the vegetables she uses are fresh from her garden.


2 pkg crescent roll dough
2 pkg (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaises
1 pkg ranch dressing
1/2 cup chopped fresh cauliflower
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh broccoli
1/2 cup chopped radishes
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped fresh green pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh carrots
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato (optional)
8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded

Press crescent rolls into jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Cool, set aside.

Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ranch dressing. Spread over rolls; top with vegetables. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Cut into 12 or 24 squares. Refrigerate until ready to

I absolutely LOVE vegetable pizza.  It is so fresh and good.  Not as "fat free" as you might think, but you can lighten it up with low fat cream cheese and mayo.

Another goodie is the fruit pizza with the cookie crust topped with a sweetened cream cheese and fresh cut fruit.  YUM-O!

You lost me when you got to the ranch dressing, cauliflower, broccholi & radishes - everything else I like though!

The great thing about this is you can leave out the stuff you don't like and add a little extra of what you do like... cuz me and raw green peppers are NOT friends.  And if you don't like ranch dressing, try substituting some taco seasoning instead.  I did that with some pinwheels I made for a fundraiser, and they were really good!

I was kind of thinking about that right after I posted it - I'm not fond of mayo either, but Miracle Whip could be used.  And I do like the other veggies.  It might even be something that I could make for the grandkids with 1 side having the things I don't like and the other not since they do like the ranch, broccholi, etc.  But they don't like the veggies that I like!
