Cold Veggie Pizza Appetizer

This is an old recipe but I haven’t made it in so long that it seems new. On Saturday night, I went to a wine and painting party with some girlfriends and needed to bring an appetizer. I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep it warm, so I figured something cold would work best. This Cold Veggie Pizza Appetizer was perfect. Right, girls? We didn’t have a chance to eat dinner beforehand either. With lots of veggies, plus protein from shredded cheese and a greek yogurt ranch topping, this was a very satisfying snack. And the painting was so much fun!

This Cold Veggie Pizza Appetizer would also be great for the super bowl. My husband loved it. He begged me to make this again and often. It could even be a light lunch. The base is canned crescent roll dough. The spread is made with cream cheese, mayonnaise, Greek yogurt and ranch dressing. It’s so incredibly good!

Beat

Start by mixing up the ranch spread. Place the cream cheese, mayo, Greek yogurt and a package of Ranch dressing powder in a large bowl. You can mix it by hand but I think it comes out creamier when you use an electric mixer. Set aside.

Spread

Unroll 2 cans of crescent roll dough onto a large cookie sheet. Bake and let cool. Spread the ranch spread over cooled crescent crust.

Pizza

Top with chopped, fresh brocoli, red peppers, green onions and shredded cheddar cheese.

    curious if I could sub out the mayo for more Greek yogurt? I no longer use mayo but saw that there was Greek yogurt being used ready. Not sure if this is for consistency or flavor? Let me know! I could let a little lite mayo slide this time 🙂 looking to make this for a dinner party tomorrow!
