Cool Veggie and Ranch Pizza Appetizer #SundaySupper

Cool Veggie and Ranch Pizza Appetizer is a standard recipe in our home. I have been making this tasty crescent roll pizza for years! Why? Because it is delicious, easy, and it is a recipe that needs to be made ahead.

You all know that I am all about entertaining and you all know that I absolutely 100% believe in prepping as much, if not all, of food ahead of time. Well, I love to entertain because I love a great party. But it is no party to be stuck in the kitchen while everyone else is enjoying themselves. Nope. I always prep as much ahead as possible.

Which is why this tasty gem of an appetizer has become an entertaining mainstay in our home. In fact, if you have ever been over – I am sure that you have enjoyed my Cool Veggie and Ranch Pizza Appetizer.  I made up a platter for a teacher potluck last week at school, and a colleague commented that she knew that was my contribution since she recognized if from a gathering at my home last summer.

This Cool Veggie and Ranch Pizza Appetizer has the classic veggie dipped in Ranch dressing flavor all kids and adults enjoy combined with  butteriness of the crescent rolls. It has the crunchy sweetness of the chopped veggies combined with the creaminess of the cream cheese. What is not to love about all of that? Oh, that’s right – it needs to be prepared ahead of time. Yes, this is the perfect appetizer to add to your repertoire of entertaining recipes.
