Vegetable Pizza

This is a recipe that I first tasted fifteen years ago. We would have a big pot luck meal for all the swimmers before they went off to the championships.

I wasn’t sure if I would like this but decided after one bite it was great.

I changed  it a little and my family loves it but I can only make it  once in a while because it is really fattening.

Two cans of crescent rolls

Two softened 8 ounce packages of cream cheese

One cup of mayonnaise.

One package of dry ranch dressing

Two cups of broccoli flowerets

One chopped onion

One chopped red pepper

One chopped green pepper

One chopped jalapeno [optional]

One cup of diced tomatoes

One 12 ounce package of  shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Ranch dressing to drizzle on top

Spread out the crescent rolls in a 9×13 pan. Make sure all the seams are sealed and make a small lip of dough all around like a pie crust.

Bake according to the package directions till the crust is golden brown.

Set aside to cool.

Mix the softened cream cheese with the mayonnaise and dry ranch dressing.

Spread the mixture on the cooled crust.

Microwave the broccoli for  one to two minutes.

Do not cook the broccoli,  just soften it a little.

Cool and sprinkle on the pizza.

Microwave the onions one minute and cool then sprinkle of the pizza.

Sprinkle the raw peppers and tomatoes on top followed by the cheese.

Finally drizzle the ranch dressing on top like you would drizzle olive oil.

Do not add a lot of the dressing.

Just before I serve this I broil the pizza to melt the cheese on the top.

This is supposed to be served cold or at room temperature.

Cut into 3×3 squares.

It is like eating ranch dressing with vegetables.

Don’t be afraid to use whatever vegetables you like but you may have to cook them a little like the broccoli.

Carrots, cauliflower and even zucchini are delicious.
