Vegetable Pizza

**Originally posted in 2006 on my old cooking blog. We like to eat this in the summertime.

We love this cold pizza in the spring and summer. Before we were married, I made this for picnic lunches often! All week I was thinking that we could go on a picnic today after church, so I made this to take along. Since it has been raining hard all day, we ate it at home in our dining room instead. It was still yummy!

The recipe says to put it on a rectangular cookie sheet, but I made it on a round pizza pan instead. I made only a half recipe of the filling for this size as well. Also I left off the lettuce as I think it gets soggy and I hate soggy lettuce. You can do as you like.:-)

Here is the recipe:
Vegetable Pizza
2- 8oz. tubes refrigerated crescent rolls
2- 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. minced onion
1-1 1/2 cups chopped lettuce
1- 1 1/2 cups of chopped raw veggies- choose 2-4 kinds: carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, tomatoes, olives
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Unroll and fit crescent rolls on 15 1/2 x 10 1/2-inch cookie sheet, pinching seams together. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until browned. Cool. Beat next 4 ingredients together and spread on crust. Top with lettuce, veggies and end with grated cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving time.

We love vegetable pizza! We make the "sauce" with the powdered ranch dressing mix + mayonnaise and we always have it with broccoli, cauliflower, & carrots. I never thought about mixing up the veggies. :)
