Veggie Pizza

I can eat a whole pizza all by myself.  I love this stuff!  I think it is originally a Pampered Chef recipe.

2 pkg. crescent rolls
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. (or so) dry ranch dressing
chopped raw veggies, such as:
green onion
sweet peas
bell pepper

In a cookie sheet, spread out the crescent rolls as much as you can and pinch the seams together.  Prick with a fork and bake as directed on the package.  I usually bake for 8 minutes and then start checking until it's golden brown.  Watch out and don't bake it too long...burnt crust isn't very tasty.  Take out and let it cool on the cookie sheet.
While the crust is cooling, mix the cream cheese and ranch seasoning in a bowl.  When the crust is cool, spread the cream cheese mixture on the crust.  Sprinkle on the chopped veggies and cut.  Makes about 15 pieces.

Variations and hints:
*Change out the seasoning: taco, dill, nothing.  Whatever you like.
*Choose specific veggies to go with your seasonings (lettuce, tomato, and olive with taco seasoning, for example)
*Use one package rolls on a pizza pan to make a circle pizza
*Add more cream cheese if you like more filling
*I use a Pampered Chef baker's roller to roll out the crust inside the pan
