Veggie Pizza Recipe

This Veggie Pizza is a crescent roll crust topped with cream cheese and a variety of vegetables, making it a healthy appetizer and perfect party food!

When I was first learning to cook, I needed very specific recipes and I would follow them to. the. letter.

I was starting from scratch and would always have a million panicked questions in the course of making a meal.

How much salt and pepper does it take “to taste”?! 

“Reduce heat” to what temperature?!

How thick is “until thickened”?! You get the picture. My cooking confidence has increased a great deal since those days, which is a good thing, because when I called my mom the other day for the recipe for Veggie Pizza, she listed a few key ingredients and concluded with, “You know, there isn’t really a recipe. Just add what you like and taste as you go!”

I like a cooking challenge.


So, I did just that!


For the spread, I use just enough Greek yogurt to thin out the cream cheese a little and enough ranch seasoning to be flavorful, but not overpowering and then I just went with it!


I thought of the veggies I like most, chopped ’em up and sprinkled them on top and I encourage you to do the same.

Vegetables That Work Well On Veggie Pizza

  • broccoli
  • carrots
  • green onions
  • bell peppers
  • zucchini
  • tomatoes
  • red onions

And, voila!  It really is that easy.  And it makes a fantastic healthy party food!

I made this the night before and covered it, so all I had to do on party day was cut and plate – simple and delicious.

P.S. The middle pieces are the best, as they always are.  Just FYI.

Becky - This looks delicious. I am wondering where you got the stand the pizza is presented on.
