How to Make a Fresh Vegetable Pizza

    Fresh vegetable pizza, not to be mistaken for a vegetarian pizza.  They are NOT the same!  A vegetarian is a traditional style pizza but made with only vegetables on it and no meat.  This is NOT that.  It is very different.  It is so delicious.  So quick and easy to make.   In fact, I fixed this last night for supper and had 2 pieces and Ron and Bub finished the rest of it off.  They kept on remarking on how good it was.  I think they were surprised by how much they did like it.  They usually require meat in every meal (being farmers and country men) but they said they didn't even miss the meat.

 Fresh Vegetable Pizza

1 c. shredded cheese
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. mayonnaise 
2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
1 can of black olives
1 head of cauliflower
1 cucumber
1 firm tomato
1 carrot

    Heat your oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Open up your cans of crescent rolls and flatten them up and press them into the bottom of the cookie sheet bringing up some of the dough up the sides to form a nice crust.  Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. 

    As the crescent roll crust is baking, prepare the cream cheese mixture.

    In a medium sized bowl, stir together the sour cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise and dry ranch dressing mix.  Stir well.

    Once the "pizza crust" is done.  Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool slightly.

    Now, take the cream cheese mixture you made a few minutes ago and spread it out all over the crust.  I only used about half of my mixture.  What was left over was a great vegetable dip for any left over vegetables you did not use all of.

   Now sprinkle on some cheese, as little or as much as you want.

Then take your cauliflower and break up the head and sprinkle bite sized pieces onto the pizza.

     Take your carrots and cut off the ends and then using a vegetable peeler, peel the carrot(s).  Place the peels of the carrot onto the pizza.  Slice the cucumber and put onto the pizza.

    You can use whatever vegetables you and your family prefer.  Sometimes we add broccoli, bell peppers and mushrooms but we just weren't feeling it when I made this one.   I hope you like this recipe and will try it out soon.  If you do, please come back and comment and let me know.  I love hearing from my followers.  

    This recipe pairs well with a light dessert like my Applesauce Puffs.
