Celebrate spring, which arrives in the Northern Hemisphere on March 20. The “confetti” on this pizza is made of some favorite spring veggies.
Confetti Pizza Pie
2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 8-ounce (227-g) package nonfat cream cheese
1/2 cup nonfat mayonnaise
1/3 packet buttermilk dressing mix
red, yellow, and green peppers
sugar snap peas
1 package matchstick-cut carrots
Wash your hands with soap and water.
Take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator to soften.
Preheat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
Open the crescent rolls. Press the dough into a round pizza pan or a cookie sheet. Bake for 10–12 minutes.
Put the cream cheese and mayonnaise in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle on the dressing mix. Mix until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Have an adult help you cut the cucumber, peppers, and peas into thin slices. Then cut the slices and the carrots into small pieces.
Spread the cream cheese mixture on the cooled pizza crust.
Sprinkle on the veggie confetti. Enjoy!
