Vegetable Pizza



My kids are - shall we say - less than enthusiastic about eating vegetables.  The trick to getting them to eat more vegetable is to make them more exciting.  One of the ways that they really like vegetables is on vegetable pizza.  It is super simple to make and I never have to remind the kids to eat their veggies when vegetable pizza is on the table. 

Vegetable Pizza
2 packages crescent rolls                ½ cup mayonnaise
16 ounces cream cheese                  ½ package Hidden Valley
cheddar cheese                                 Ranch Dressing Mix

Vegetables:  green pepper, tomato, cucumber, carrots, celery

Place crescent rolls on baking sheet and bake 10 minutes at 375.  I skimp and buy off brands on a lot of things but I've learned the hard way that generic crescent rolls are just not as good as Pillsbury crescent rolls.  Trust me when I say that it's defiantly worth spending the few extra cents on these name brand rolls. 


Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise and dressing mix.


Spread on rolls when cooled.

 
Top with vegetables and grated cheese.




Cut into squares and serve.
 

I used to have the kids help make the vegetable pizza when they were really little.  (Another secret to getting them to eat more vegetables.)  They used to love arranging  the veggies on top of the filling.  Sometimes, they would even make rows of vegetables on top of our pizza to make it look like a garden.   It really didn't matter how our veggie pizza ended up looking, as long as they ate the veggies it the end. 

Ciao!
