    BeachGirl's Note:

    One of my favorite make-ahead, deliciously different appetizers for a party! Everyone love it and asks for the recipe. DH doesn't like broccoli and he loves this pizza, as all vegetable flavors blend after overnight refrigeration. I'd guess it serves about 24+ people with little 1-inch square bites. Leftovers, if there are any, can be refrigerated for about 2 days.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 24


    17x11 i ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 (13 7/8 ounce) cans refrigerated ready-made pizza dough or 2 (10 7/8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls





    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      Lightly grease 17x11 rectangular cookie sheet or a 16-ounce pizza pan.
    3. 3
      Press pizza dough into pan to form a crust.
    4. 4
      Bake as directed on package until crust is done and just slightly browned on top.
    5. 5
      Do not overbake.
    6. 6
    7. 7
      Mix Sauce ingredients together and spread over cooled crust.
    8. 8
      Prepared all of the vegetables of choice by dicing them into very small pieces, placing each vegetable in a separate bowl or stack.
    9. 9
      ***Pay special attention to the tomatoes, as you need to drain these on paper towels to remove all excess moisture.
    10. 10
      Blot both top and bottom of tomatoes until they are dry.
    11. 11
      ***Sprinkle each vegetable, along with the cheese, evenly over the pizza, covering the cream cheese sauce in a decorative fashion.
    12. 12
      Cover entire pizza with plastic wrap and gently press toppings into the cream cheese.
    13. 13
      Refrigerate until serving time.
    14. 14
      (I prefer to refrigerate overnight to let flavors blend.) Cut into small, appetizer servings (about 1"x1") (I use a pizza cutter for this).
    15. 15
      Don't be tempted to add too many toppings to this pizza.
    16. 16
      Toppings need to adhere to cream cheese to make it neater to serve and eat; however, I always have some topping fall away when I cut this.
    17. 17
      ***I have kept this pizza in the refrigerator for several days, and it was still very delicious.
    18. 18
      SUBSTITUTE any of the toppings you like in place of the ones listed.
    19. 19
      I always select toppings that have a variety of complementary colors for a pretty presentation.

      I absolutely loved this!!! I halved the recipe and then once I tasted it, I wished I didn't. I'm gonna make more soon and it was really simple to make. I made it in the morning and then we ate it for lunch. I used scallions, cucumber, celery, carrots, tomatoes and broccoli. It was a hit with me, my fiance, and his niece and nephew, all enjoyed. I highly recommend this and will keep the recipe handy. Thanks Beachgirl!!

      I've had this recipe for years, and have made it many times. The only veggies I put on top are blanched, small broccoli florets, finely diced, purple onion, and finely chopped, red and green sweet peppers, occasionally, chopped black olives. I have served it succesfully, after only a couple hours of chilling, and it's still delicious.

      Great recipe, I used the canned ready-made pizza dough but next time will try it with the crescent dinner rolls. This definitely must sit overnight before serving.
