This veggie pizza is a crispy crescent roll crust topped with ranch flavored cream cheese and crunchy colorful vegetables. An easy holiday appetizer that’s perfect for serving a crowd!
The holidays are here, which means lots of fun, celebrations and food! I find myself entertaining a lot over the holidays, and when I need a quick and easy appetizer to serve a hungry crowd, I turn to this veggie pizza. It’s fresh, colorful, festive and is always the first thing to disappear from the snack table. You won’t believe how easy it is to make, and your guests will be asking you for the recipe!
How to make veggie pizza
This recipe starts with unbaked crescent rolls, which are pressed into a sheet pan to form the crust for this pizza. You can simply use your fingers to spread the dough in the pan, or you can use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a rectangle shape.
I use Glad Press ‘n Seal for so many things, it seals tightly onto many difference surfaces like plastic, metal and wood. I also use my Press n’ Seal to cover my veggie pizza while it’s chilling in the refrigerator. I love that this plastic wrap is BPA-free and safe to use in the microwave.
The creamy spread for this veggie pizza is made with cream cheese, sour cream, and a packet of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dip Mix. Ranch is not just for salads, the dip mix adds SO much flavor to this veggie pizza. The ranch spread is my favorite part of this whole recipe! You can find Hidden Valley Dip Mixes in the dressing aisle near the dry mixes. I bought everything to make this recipe at Walmart, it’s my favorite place to go for one stop shopping for holiday entertaining.
This veggie pizza is topped with a crunch and colorful combination of shredded carrots, broccoli, green onions and red and yellow bell peppers. I like to lightly steam the broccoli, but I leave the rest of the veggies raw. You can really use any of your favorite cooked or raw vegetables here, other great options would be sliced mushrooms, radishes, asparagus, corn and cauliflower. This veggie pizza reminds me of the flavors of veggies with Ranch dip, all on top of a crispy crust. How can you go wrong with that?!
The great thing about this veggie pizza is that it’s made for serving a crowd. You can cut your slices as large or as small as you want. It makes a hearty appetizer, or you can even cut the squares a little larger and serve it as a meal. I’ll be heading over to Walmart quite a bit this holiday season to pick up the ingredients for this party snack, it’s become one of my most requested recipes. Your friends and family are bound to love it too!

This is a good recipe. It was a hit at a group meeting. I did not have the original Hidden Valley dip mix. I used what I had on hand Hidden Valley dill dip mix. It added to the flavor. I used the vegetables I liked.
I have made this many times! It’s a crowd pleaser 🙂
There are a few variations of this floating around, but this one works best because you use 12 oz cream cheese (not 2 whole blocks) and the dough is baked on a cookie sheet, not pressed into a 9×13 pan. This results in a pizza that is not too thick but still has enough cream cheese mixture to satisfy my Ranch tooth. This method also allows for a crisper crust that doesn’t get quite as soggy when stored.
