Delicious cold snack. Younger kids love helping to decorate this "pizza" to look like a miniature vegetable garden.
Field of Greens Pizza
1 package (4 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 cup of fat free cream cheese
1 Tbsp. 1 percent or fat free milk
dash of garlic powder
1/2 tsp. each of dill, oregano and parsley
3 cups of assorted fresh vegetables such as broccoli flowerets, sliced carrots and peppers, cut up small
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the package of rolls and carefully unroll the sheets of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Pinch together the perforations with your fingers. Use a rolling pin, or use your fingers to get the dough into an 8 inch square. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and let crust cool completely.
Put cream cheese, milk and seasonings in a bowl and mix completely. Spread the mixture over the cool crust. Arrange the vegetables in rows on top of the pizza to look like a garden (here is a great place where children can help). Can be served immediately or refrigerated for up to 4 hours. To serve, cut into squares.
