Helpful Tips for Making This Crescent Roll Veggie Pizza
- Use fresh crescent dough. You probably don’t always take the time to check the code dates when you’re grocery shopping. However, the refrigerated crescent dough can get a little gooey if it’s close to the expiration date.
- Don’t take the dough out of the refrigerator until it’s time to roll it out. If you leave it sitting on the counter for too long, it will be harder to handle.
- Take the cream cheese out of the fridge ahead of time and let it soften. This will make it easier to work with.
- Use your food processor to chop the veggies. Pulsing them a few seconds at a time will give you nicely chopped pieces. Be careful not to pulverize them.
- Gently press the toppings into the cream cheese using a piece of plastic wrap.
- Cut into squares and refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut immediately, even if you’re not serving this up right away. If you delay the cutting for too long, the cream cheese layer will tend to lift off the dough.
