Vegetable Pizza

Today's theme for Random Recipes hosted by Pam at Random Thoughts is appetizer and/or drink recipes.

When we get together with Hubby's family, which is sometimes once a month, we have started sharing appetizers and finger foods instead of a full meal. There is a lot of variety, and I don't feel like I overeat when it's just finger foods. (Maybe I'm fooling myself?)

This is one of my favorite appetizers. I love making this for large groups, like a Super Bowl Party or New Year's Eve get-together.

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 tomatoes
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped cauliflower
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Roll out the crescent roll dough onto a 9x13 inch 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, tomato, green bell pepper, cauliflower, shredded carrots, and Cheddar cheese over the cream cheese layer. Chill for one hour, slice and serve.
