I'm home from college for the summer and it's great to be able to spend some of that time with my Mom. We're really close and since she's a high school teacher, she gets the summers off as well.  Today we made something that we've been making together since I was a little kid-fresh garden veggie pizza.  It's really easy to make and best of all, it taste so good...I think it rivals actual pizza-and it's a lot healthier too!


1 pkg. crescent rolls
1 pkg. cream cheese
1/2 c mayonnaise
1 pkg. ranch style dry dressing (you can also make your own mix like me and my mom did, which includes minced garlic, fresh parsley, diced onion, dried dill, salt, and oregano)
fresh cut veggies (we used celery, broccoli, radish, cucumber, tomato, red pepper, carrots, frozen peas)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spread crescent roll dough onto bottom of greased baking sheet.  Put in oven for about 10 minutes then let cool.  The dough needs to be completely cooled before the spread and veggies are added so I would recommend making the dough first.
While waiting for the dough to cool, cut up the veggies using a processor.  Size of the veggies depends on your particular liking!
Make the spread-mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ranch style dressing or other ingredients into a medium bowl. 
Once the dough is cooled, spread the spread evenly.  Next, layer on the veggies is any order.  Finally, add the cheese on top.  Refrigerate for a few hours before eating and serve chilled.  Enjoy!

That is making me SO HUNGRY right now! Have you experimented with any other sauces, like hummus? Thanks for posting the directions - I'm going to have to try it! Smiley

That looks fantastic and what a sweet story. My kids have pizza on a Friday night which we usually make together -  this looks a really interesting variation. We'll try this week (but we'll probably have Potato wedges and garlic bread too).

Thank you all for your comments.  If you all make it or change up the recipe, I would love to hear about it!

Guin-I actually never even thought about using hummus, but that sounds like it would be very tasty! I just have an addiction to cream cheese so I've always used that spread.  But I will DEFINITELY have to try that out next time  Smiley

Yum!  My mom and I used to make this too.  I'd forgotten about this recipe.  It's the perfect thing for summer.  Must make it this weekend.
