Fresh Veggie Pizza


This is one of those meals I crave in the spring and summer when the weather is nice and the fresh veggies are great. It's something my mother used to make for us and was an easy way for her to get us kids to eat our vegetables. Also, several of the items I use come in low-fat or non-fat options, helping to make it healthier. The only downfall is that it doesn't save well so leftovers aren't that great - of course we never end up with any leftovers anyhow!

INGREDIENTS

1 can crescent rolls
4 oz cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
powdered ranch mix
shredded cheddar (or other cheese of your choice)
diced fresh veggies

DIRECTIONS

Roll out the crescent dough onto a cookie sheet and make sure to press the pre-cut edges together to form your pizza crust. Bake it according to the directions and allow to cool.

Mix cream cheese, sour cream, and ranch mix together to form the sauce of the pizza. Spread it on the cooled crust. Top with your shredded cheese and fresh veggies.

Another option is to top it with the ranch sauce, then cut it into pieces and allow everyone to top it with the cheese and veggies as they like.

WARNING - this can be messy if you load it down like we do, so make sure to have forks and napkins handy!
