Vegetable Pizza

Vegetable pizza is a snazzy appetizer, snack, or side dish for any event or meal. You can make your crust ahead of time or fix it that day. This recipe makes two large cookie trays, so if you don’t need that large a serving, put the rest into the freezer for a later time.

If you’re pushed for time, you can use crescent rolls or dough sheets. I like to make my own crust because I know exactly what is in it, so I am sharing this crust recipe, which comes from my sister Alice.

The vegetable pizza crust

For the toppings, you can add whatever you prefer. I use a food chopper for the cauliflower and broccoli, and a shredder for carrots. You can add onions, bacon, cucumbers, tomatoes, and/or celery. Top with shredded cheddar cheese or you can use a mozzarella cheese.

Vegetable Toppings

After the crust is baked and cooled, spread the filling over the crust. Then add your vegetables and your cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
