Pizza with fresh vegetables and cheese



















Ingredients:

2 packs of 8 oz Cream cheese at room temperature

1 pack of  "Ranch" - Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix

3-4 tablespoons sour cream

1-2 tbsp mayonnaise (optional)

vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, green onions, carrots, tomatoes (preferably cherry or grape tomatoes)

16 oz (4 cups) grated cheese (Mozzarella, Cheddar ...)

2 packs of "Pillsbury Crescent - Recipe Creations" or "Pillsbury Crescent Rolls"

Remarks:

The quantity of the vegetables is up to you. You must have enough to cover the prepared dough, but not too much, because they will easily fall off when you try to eat the finished pizza.

You can also add other vegetables, like variety of chopped fresh peppers, pitted olives, etc.

If you do not have access to the products of "Pillsbury", you can use some puff pastry or make your own.

If you don't have "Ranch" dressing, you can season the mixture of cream cheese and sour cream with seasonings to your taste, that will suit the vegetables.

The pizza you can prepare a day in advance, but in this case, do not put the tomatoes on, because it will make the cheese soggy. Arrange them on top, right before serving.

Preparation:

Spread a little oil on the bottom of a large, shallow baking dish (cookie sheet). Layer both packages of dough side by side, pinch the ends where they come together to stick them together. Poke the dough with a fork all over and bake it to a nice golden color. Take it out from the oven and let it cool completely.

During this time, with a mixer beat the soft cream cheese and sour cream. Add a little mayonnaise if you wish and season it with the dry "Ranch"mixture (it's not necessary to put the whole package - try it). Spread a even layer of the prepared mixture over the baked and cooled dough.

Now prepare your vegetables. Break the cauliflower and broccoli into small florets and if necessary (if they are still too large) cut them with a knife into smaller pieces. Finely chop the carrots (I use "Food Processor" for them). Cut in small pieces only the green part of the green onions. Also dice the tomatoes in small cubes (if you are using cherry or grape tomatoes, just cut them in half).

The covered with cream cheese mixture dough, first sprinkle evenly with the chopped carrots. Distribute the broccoli and cauliflower over and gently press over with hand to push the vegetable into the cheese. Sprinkle with shredded cheese on top, arrange the tomatoes over and sprinkle with the green onions. Cover with plastic wrap and leave it to stay in a cool place for 1-2 hours.

Now it's ready to be cut into pieces and served.


Enjoy!
