What Are the Crescent Roll Veggie Pizza Ingredients?

This veggie pizza with cream cheese uses a minimum of ingredients that give the pizza the maximum amount of flavor and the perfect textures to make an incredible experience to eat:
Pillsbury™ Crescent Rolls: Either the individual rolls or the crescent sheet can be used to make the crust. This light and flaky, buttery crust not only tastes delicious, but it means you don’t have to eat the veggies and dip with your fingers!

Cream Cheese: Rich and thick, softened cream cheese adds a lusciousness to the seasoned cream cheese mixture used to top the crust.

Sour Cream: Balancing the richness of the cream cheese, sour cream adds even more dairy flavor to this flavorful “dip” used on this vegetable pizza.

Dried Dill Weed: Packed with flavor, just a little dill weed adds freshness to the seasoned sour cream and goes well with the veggies.

Garlic Powder: Adds depth of flavor to the seasoned sour cream topping--without having to cut up garlic, which saves time!

Broccoli: small florets add color and crunch without being so big you can’t bite into appetizer-size pizza pieces. Broccoli and dill are a match made in heaven!

Cucumber: Mild-flavored cucumber adds crunch without giving the pizza too heavy of a veggie taste.

Tomato: Using a plum (Roma) tomato is great for its wonderful tomato flavor and size, so the entire tomato gets used on this pizza. Being seeded and chopped takes the extra juice out, so it doesn’t pool on the sour cream layer.

Carrot: Using shredded carrot is a clever way to add even more colorful veggies to top the pizza, without them being too crunchy to eat raw.

What Are the Best Veggie Pizza Toppings?

For this vegetable pizza, the only toppings you really need are already part of the recipe! The rich and creamy seasoned sour cream pairs perfectly with the variety of veggies that add color and crunch to this amazing pizza. There is a generous amount of the sour cream mixture, that makes is luscious and wonderfully moist to bite into. If you want to change up the veggies or add another flavorful topping, try any of these veggie pizza toppings:
Vary the Veggies: There are infinite vegetable combinations you could use. Choose those that offer a variety in color and shape for the eye-appealing pizza. Since this pizza isn’t baked with the toppings, stick to bite-size or shredded veggies, so that none of them are hard to chew. If you choose veggies that are hard even at a smaller size, cook or partially cook, cool, and drain them before adding to the pizza. If you’re craving a cheesier take on veggie pizza, try our Greek Veggie Pizza recipe. It’s packed with even more tasty veggies like spinach, artichokes, onion and Kalamata olives.

Swirl in Flavor: Adding ingredients to the sour cream mixture can add even more flavor to this pizza. Try stirring in cooked and crumbled bacon, drained chopped green chiles or pickled jalapeños.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Layers of fat in the crescent dough help them rise, creating a pizza crust that is lighter that a traditional bread dough crust.
  • tip 2
    Serve at room temperature or chilled as an appetizer or summer patio supper, topped with a casual mix of veggies or creatively arranged in rows.
  • tip 3
    To easily soften cream cheese, remove wrapper and place on a microwaveable plate. Microwave uncovered on High for 15 to 20 seconds or until softened.
