Crescent Veggie Pizza

This is such a great appetizer or light meal, especially in the summer.  Although, the temp dropped nearly 50 degrees here today, so it no longer feels like summer in Wisconsin.

I'm a big fan of garlic, so I initially tried this recipe with fresh garlic, but it was overpowering, so I now use garlic powder instead.  In order to get broccoli and cauliflower into small enough pieces, I use my Pampered Chef food chopper.


Crescent Veggie Pizza

  • 2 cups assorted vegetables (any combination), chopped into small pieces, such as: zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, cucumber, cauliflower, tomato or grated carrots 
Instructions
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Unroll dough (I prefer the seamless sheet version) and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
