I’ve been making this veggie pizza recipe for well over a decade now, it was one of the first party foods I ever learned how to cook and it remains one of my most-requested and most quickly devoured potluck recipes.
What really makes this veggie pizza so great is the flaky, buttery, crescent roll crust. This recipe uses two cans of crescent roll dough and the base. While occasionally I have used my homemade pizza dough when I haven’t felt like running out to the store, there’s something so classic and satisfying about that crescent roll dough (and this is coming from someone who lives for making things from scratch!).
Veggie Pizza Toppings
You can use your favorite toppings for your own veggie pizza, but the most popular toppings include:
- Broccoli florets
- Red or green pepper
- Shredded carrots
- And, of course, the classic cream cheese/sour cream/dill “sauce”.
Really though, the options are endless and you can include your favorites (or omit those that you don’t like). In the past, I have even made a “taco pizza” by substituting taco seasoning for the dried dill weed, and then using my taco salad as the topping… so good!
Can I Make Veggie Pizza in Advance?
This cresecnt roll veggie pizza can be made several hours in advance. However, I do recommend making it the same day you intend to serve it for best results, otherwise the crust can get a little bit soggy from the cream cheese/sour cream “sauce”. If you do need to store your veggie pizza, do so in an airtight container or wrap it well with plastic wrap.
In the past, when I have had to make this veggie pizza recipe in advance and knew that I wouldn’t have time to make it the same day I needed to serve it, I have baked the crust, prepared the “sauce”, and diced my veggies. Then I have just stored the crust in an airtight container at room temperature and the sauce and veggies each in their own separate airtight container in the refrigerator. Then, once you are ready to serve your veggie pizza, you can quickly and easily assemble the pieces… easy peasy!
So, what are you going to top your veggie pizza with?

- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 Roma tomatoes seeds removed and diced
- 1 cup broccoli florets

- 1/2 cup cucumber diced
- 1/3 cup shredded carrots I use matchstick carrots
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and prepare a cookie sheet by lining with parchment paper.
- Open crescent roll dough and spread evenly into a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Press dough together at seams to make a cohesive crust and roll excess dough over itself at the edges to form a crust.
- Use a fork to pierce holes evenly over the crust then transfer to 375F and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow crust to cool completely before covering with toppings.
- While your dough cooks and cools, combine the softened cream cheese, sour cream, dill weed, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Stir well until completely combined.
- Once pizza crust has cooled, spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the surface.
- Top with chopped veggies, cut, and serve.
