I just started picking broccoli in my garden and Vegetable Pizza came to mind.
We had this salad version often when I was growing up. It was perfect for summer picnics. But recently I discovered that many are unfamiliar with this recipe, so I'm going to share it with you. Maybe it can become your summer favorite.
I use my mom's pizza crust recipe but if you are short on time, crescent rolls in a can work too.
pizza dough for one large pizza OR two cans of crescent rolls
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 T Ranch dressing mix OR pack of Hidden Valley Ranch mix
various diced vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, tomatoes, or celery
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
bacon bits (optional)
Spread dough in large jelly roll pan. Prick dough with fork. Bake as directed. Cool.
Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, and dressing mix. Spread on cooled crust.
Sprinkle vegetables and cheese on crust. Press lightly. Add bacon bits if desired. Serve.
