Veggie Pizza... another recipe that I grew up loving! Just swap out the sauce for a ranch spread and the cheese with veggies. It is so tasty and a guaranteed crowd pleaser! The original recipe called or crescent rolls. But I have yet to find a Gluten Free crescent roll that I liked. Then a few years back we had Against the Grain pizza crust and it was perfect! It has that crescent roll taste I was looking for, and it was strong enough to be cut into small piece.
I am working on the perfect veggie pizza that grain and dairy free, but wanted to share this version because some things are just to good not to share. You can use Simple Mills Pizza Crust, but you can't do as small of peieces. You could use a dairy free sour cream or cream cheese if you wanted it to be dairy free. I use Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Sour Cream and I love it and have no issues!
How to make Veggie Pizza:
This appetizer is easy to make. Get your favorite pizza crust, I suggest Against all Grain pizza crust, cook if necessary. While the crust is cooling make the ranch spread. Set in the fridge and get out your vegetables. I use the cauliflower rice in the refrigerator section, but you can use regular cauliflower and either chop it up or use a food processor. Same with the Broccoli and Peppers. Another option is to use broccoli slaw and chop it up or put it in the food processor till rice like. You can also use the food processor for the peppers. You can use larger chunks but I find the rice like size of the veggie works much better.
Once your veggies are cut, it is time to assemble the veggie pizza. Start by putting the ranch spread on the pizza as you would pizza sauce. Next place your veggies on, spreading them around evenly. Once the pizza is coated in veggies lightly pat them down and cut into bite size pieces. (or into slices if you choose)Print
