  • Crescent roll sheets: These form the flaky foundation of our pizza. If you can’t find the sheets, regular crescent dough will do the trick. Just press seams together, and you’re good to go.
  • The sauce: A blend of softened cream cheese, sour cream, ranch seasoning, and a hint of garlic salt creates a luscious and tangy sauce.
  • Veggies: From julienned carrots, cherry tomatoes, black olives, and broccoli to cauliflower and red peppers the veggie lineup is fresh and colorful.
  • Cheese: What’s a pizza without cheese? Sprinkle shredded cheddar generously over the top.
  • Optional toppings: Sliced green onions, thinly sliced radishes, and fresh dill.

How to Make Veggie Pizza

This pizza tastes even better if you give it a chance to chill in the fridge to let the flavors of the sauce develop. Remember to take this extra chilling time into account when you’re making it.

  • Preheat and roll: Fire up your oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll the crescent roll sheets onto the sheet and press them down. Bake the pizza dough until golden brown.
  • Add the pizza sauce: While the crust is baking, whip up the sauce of softened cream cheese, sour cream, ranch seasoning, and garlic salt. Once the pizza crust is cool, slather on the creamy sauce. Pop it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to let the flavors mingle.
  • Top with veggies: Now comes the fun part—arrange your rainbow of veggies on top. Sprinkle on the cheese and any extra toppings you fancy.
  • Chill and serve: Stick your masterpiece back in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. When the time comes, cut it into 16 squares and watch it disappear!

Expert Tips

  • Can’t find crescent roll sheets? No problem! Seamlessly press regular crescent dough together for a flawless crust.
  • Out of sour cream? No worries—swap it for mayo or Greek yogurt for a different twist on the sauce.
  • Turn pizza night into a fun family activity. Let the kids choose their favorite veggies and participate in the assembly process.

How do I prevent the crust from getting soggy?

To prevent a soggy crust, make sure it’s fully baked and cooled before adding the toppings.

This pizza is always best on the day it’s made but you can store leftover pizza in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
