Vegetable Pizza

Vegetable Pizza

    Many people these days are big on eating healthy. I'm just happy to have food and if it taste good all the better. But what if you can have healthy food that tastes good? Then you get the best of both. 
    I tried this veggie pizza at a fundraiser dinner and was so surprised at the flavor and texture. Even my hubby who is a complete carnivore thought this was really good.

Vegetable Pizza
2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent rolls
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1(1 ounce) package dry Ranch-style dressing mix
1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped cauliflower
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup chopped green olives
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Roll out the crescent roll dough onto a baking sheet, and pinch together edges to form the pizza crust.

Bake crust for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Once finished cooking, remove crust from oven and let cool 15 minutes without removing it from the baking sheet.

In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, and dry Ranch dressing.  Spread the mixture over the cooled crust.  Arrange broccoli, green bell pepper, olives, cauliflower, carrots and cheddar cheese over the cream cheese layer. Chill for one hour, slice and serve.
