DIRECTIONS

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