Great as an appetizer. Veggie Pizza is made with a dough crust, ranch 'sauce', and fresh vegetables on top. Easily customize for all tastes. Have you eaten your veggies today?

Veggie Pizza is yet another family recipe. Again, I have no idea where it came from, but we have been making it as long as I can remember. I have seen other recipes for something similar online, but never anything exactly the same. I used to call my grandma once a month asking her for the recipe before I finally remembered to just write it down!

The original recipe was made using crescent rolls and pinching the edges to make a crust. I tried that a few times but found it much easier to just get the pizza crust in a can near the rolls. It doesn’t fall apart as easily and cooks a little better.

Veggie pizza is also great for getting some veggies in. It’s made with a ranch “sauce” on it, and fresh vegetables on top. It combines some of my favorite things, with a bread crust, ranch dipping, and the raw veggies. I can also use this to get my kids to eat some vegetables too. Score for mommy!

Veggie pizza can also be customized to different people. I don’t care for raw tomatoes, so I usually make half with (because Justin does eat them), and half without for me. You can also use other vegetables, such as peppers, on these if that’s what you like too.

Veggie pizza can be served immediately, but I prefer it to be cold. It can be stored in the refrigerator, but is best the day it’s made. After that, the crust will start to get a bit too moist. So, veggie pizza is something that can be made ahead of time, just not more than a day early. 

Another option for making it ahead of time would be to cook the crust and store it at room temperature. Mix the cream cheese spread and refrigerate, and chop the vegetables ahead of time. Then, it would only take a few minutes to prepare the pizza when it’s time to serve. 

Step by Step

Spread the pizza crust out on your baking sheet or stone and bake as directed, until the crust is golden brown. 

Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ranch powder. 

Once the crust has mostly cooled, spread the cream cheese mixture onto the dough. Try to get it as even as possible and close to the edges. 

Sprinkle your vegetables on top of the cream cheese. 

Cut into squares. Then refrigerate and serve cold.

  1. I am vegetarian and try to find different meals to make. I’ve never thought of not adding cheese to my pizza. This is a brilliant idea. Also, I am impressed that you added carrots to it. This one I will definitely be using, thank you for the recipe.

  2. I love a good veggie pizza and this one looks absolutely amazing. I always make your recipes and they are always amazing.

  3. Oh my goodness. My mouth is watering. This looks so delicious. I love veggies. My husband however does not but since this has a ranch sauce, he’d like this. He’s big on ranch! I’m definitely going to have to try this!!!

  4. I honestly would have never thought to have served this cold. Pizza is always hot and so that is odd but with the sauce and toppings it totally makes sense and now I want to try it!

  5. I love that it can be so easily customized. I can set up a do-it-yourself bar and have the kids make their own pizzas. Great idea!

  6. Ahh! So (except for the crust) this is a no-bake pizza! I get it! I was thinking at first that it was like the white-sauce pizzas I used to get from Papa Murphy’s Take’n’Bake! (Only I was confused at first glance to know how/why you had sushi on top – eventually figured out that was raw veggies, not raw fish!)
