- You can make it in advance. Look at our tips and trick for prepping it before the party.

Ingredients Needed for Veggie Pizza
- Crescent rolls – If you can find the sheet of crescent roll dough get that. So much easier than pressing the seams together in the individual crescent rolls, but either will work.
- French Onion Dip
- Cream Cheese
- Ranch Dressing Mix
- Mayonnaise – Not Miracle Whip, that will give it a sweet taste. You could also use sour cream.
- Vegetables – Broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, chopped carrots, sliced green olives, shredded cheddar cheese etc.
To cut down on calories you can use reduced fats items especially for the cream cheese mixture.
Steps to Prepare
- Crust – Grease a jelly roll pan (15.5” x 10.5”), add the crescent rolls, pressing the seams together to form a crust, unless you use the sheet of crescent roll dough. Bake according to package directions about 12 to 15 minutes or until just golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool at least 30 minutes.
- Prep Sauce – Mix the dip, cream cheese, ranch dressing and mayonnaise together. Spread on the cooled crust.
- Top the Pizza – Cut vegetables up and put on cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
- Store – Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. We don’t recommend making this more than 8 hours before you will use it as the crust will start to get soggy.
Tips to Prep Vegetable Pizza in Advance
If you want to make this more than 8 hours ahead of time we recommend doing the following. This can be done up to a day ahead of time.
Baked the crust then let it cool. After it cools cover it and keep it at room temperature.
Make the cream cheese spread, cover and store in the refrigerator.
Chop up your vegetables, store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
When you are ready to serve it just top the crust with the cream cheese sauce, vegetables and cheese!
