Vegetable Pizza Appetizer
my aunt diana makes this every year for her garden club salad buffet 
luncheon. it's so very good! great to take to parties or a potluck. you 
can make any or all of this in advance and put it together at the last 
minute. diana would say it's even better the next day, but i think it 
gets too soggy. 
 
this is my most-requested recipe and i have actually given "gift 
certificates" for a pan of this as christmas gifts in the past. some 
people hate having to cut up all the vegetables, but if you have a food 
processor or you take advantage of some of the already prepared veggies 
they have these days, it makes it much easier. i have even made this on 
a boboli crust or spread some of the sauce inside a pita and stuffed it 
with the veggies for a quick healthy sandwich. during the holidays, you 
can buy canned biscuits and place them on a cookie sheet in the shape of 
a christmas tree, bake them and use that as a crust for this recipe. 
very festive :-) 
 
 
 
vegetable pizza 
 
1   popopen can pizza crust (sold with the canned biscuits in most
  stores
2   8oz cream cheese blocks
1 cup  mayonnaise
1 package  ranch dressing mix powder
  chopped celery, carrots, red bell pepper, broccoli, snow peas, radishes,
  etc (any vegetables you like - some people even put apples in this!)
2 cup  shredded cheese
 
cook pizza crust according to directions on can. let cool completely. 
(use a 9 x 13 pan for thick crust or a cookie sheet for thinner crust.) 
mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise and ranch dressing mix and chill 
till 
firm. spread on pizza crust. top with chopped vegetables of your choice 
and press them down into the sauce firmly. 
top with shredded cheese and press that down, too. cut into squares. 
 
hint: if you cut the crust before you add the sauce and toppings, it 
makes it much easier to serve. if you cut it at the end, all the veggies 
and cheese will fall everywhere....of course, it falls everywhere anyway 
when you pick up a piece and take a bite, lol.
