Cold Veggie Appetizer Pizza

There are many versions of the out there, but here's my variation.  I have been known to eat a couple of pieces of this with a salad for lunch or supper, and it makes great "picky" food too. It makes a great potluck offering, too.

Ingredients:

2 packages Pillsbury crescent roll dough
1-2 cups of chopped raw veggies of choice (I use red pepper, zucchini, green onion, broccoli and shredded carrot)
about 1/2 a tub of garlic and herb cream cheese (you can use more or less depending on your taste of course)
1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or mozzarella usually, but use whatever you like)

Directions:

  1. Open both packages of crescent rolls, one at a time, and unroll dough side by side onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  press down on perforations so that it forms one solid sheet of dough.
  2. Bake at 325 for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden brown.  Set aside to cool completely.
  3. Spread cream cheese over dough, leaving a small border around much like you would expect from pizza.
  4. Cover cream cheese with chopped veggies
  5. Finish with shredded cheese, cut into squares, and serve.
Happy Eating!!

  1. A sample of this recipe was delivered to my door by surprise. When I opened it, I saw the cream cheese and thought, I'll try a bit and let Judy have the rest later (not a fan of cream cheese)

    Judy never got any! This was delicious and would be lovely at a pot luck dinner. YUMM cream cheese and all.

  2. I've also made it with spinach dip as the base instead of the cream cheese, but I prefer the cream cheese. Gives you an uption though!!
