This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Kathleen D. Congrats!
Now that the holidays are over, I’m looking forward to a tiny break when it comes to the kitchen. While I’m not a huge fan of packaged foods, I do utilize them on occasion. With two children and a husband who goes back to work this week, I’m on my own!
I have to admit that their are certain foods I’ve been eating since I was a child. I remember my mother making Pillsbury Crescent Rolls for dinner on many occasions. There is something about those flaky, buttery biscuits that won’t allow me to eat just one. And I am perfectly content eating them as is (with a little butter, of course). However, did you know that you can actually use them for appetizers and meals? Their website contains several recipes using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls…recipes you and your kids will likely eat. One of the recipes that stood out to me was their Veggie Pizza recipe. I selected their Reduced Fat variety to shave some of the fat and calories off and they still tasted really good.
Easy Veggie Pizza
2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury® Place ‘n Bake™ refrigerated crescent rounds or Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup small fresh broccoli florets
1/3 cup quartered cucumber slices
1 plum (Roma) tomato, seeded, chopped
1/4 cup shredded carrot
1. Heat oven to 375°F.
2. If using crescent rolls: Unroll both cans of dough; separate dough into 4 long rectangles. In ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, place dough; press in bottom and up sides to form crust. If using dough sheets: Unroll both cans of dough. In ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, place dough; press in bottom and up sides to form crust.
3. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
4. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, dill and garlic powder until smooth. Spread over crust. Top with vegetables. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours before serving. Cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.
