Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #77: Veggie Ranch Pizza

Time for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky to share what you and your children have created in the kitchen.)


The linky is at the bottom.

This week our letter is V and our topic is Vegetables. What better time would there be to make a Veggie Ranch Pizza. I have always enjoyed a good veggie pizza at fellowship meals and picnics, but I have never made my own. We followed this recipe I found on
(I have to say, I would recommend cutting the cream cheese, mayo and ranch mix back by half or making 2 pizzas, because the dressing was overpowering. However, the ingredients listed here are the amounts used in the original recipe.)


2 (8oz) Cans of Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 oz dry Ranch dressing mix
Choice of Veggies, chopped/shredded (several cups total)
(We used veggies in the color of the rainbow)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

First we rolled out the crescent roll dough into a 9x13 cookie sheet, making sure to pinch the seams together.

Then we mixed the cream cheese, mayonnaise and ranch dressing mix together.

Next we chopped and shredded the veggies.

We baked the crust in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes.
(This probably could have been done while we were chopping the veggies, but I was waiting because I had to go give a child a bath.)

After it cooled we spread the ranch topping and arranged the veggies in the order of the colors of the rainbow. We actually made it on St. Patrick's Day so we could continue our focus on rainbows.

Grape tomatoes, carrots, corn, broccoli, and shredded beets
