Classic Veggie Pizza Recipe

classic veggie pizza

A classic veggie pizza recipe made with crescent roll dough, a mixture of cream cheese, sour cream, and ranch salad dressing, and topped with chopped vegetables and cheese. Serve this cold pizza for brunch or as an appetizer.

This is a quick and easy recipe that is a hit at family gatherings, parties, or bridal and baby showers. It adds a nice amount of color to a buffet and also a savory component to balance out all of the sweets that are usually available.

It will also quickly become a favorite to bring to a work potluck. You might even convince those co-workers who disdain vegetables to give this recipe a try.


You can use a variety of vegetables for this veggie pizza appetizer; basically whatever you like. Try chopped broccoli, cauliflower, shredded carrots, red, yellow, and green peppers, sliced green or black olives, mushrooms, quartered cherry tomatoes, radishes, green onions, or cucumbers. I would suggest finely chopping the vegetables into bite sized pieces.

This is also a nice recipe for your children to help in the kitchen as they can learn cutting and baking skills while you supervise.

Try to incorporate some color into the pizza by using a variety of vegetables, especially if you have some of these items growing in your own garden.

One word of note: If you are going to use fresh tomatoes on here, make sure you seed the tomatoes. Seeding the tomato means you cut the tomato in half and scoop out the fleshy middle. You then just use the outside portion of the tomato and dice it. This saves your pizza from becoming watery from the tomatoes.

You can bake the crust ahead the night before if you are in a pinch for time, but wait to add the dressing mixture and cheese/vegetables until 1-2 hours before serving or the crust will start to become soggy.
