Recipe: Graveyard Veggie Pizza


Last week at work, I was part of a committee hosting our 4th quarter birthday celebration. We chose to have a Halloween themed birthday lunch and I was in charge of decorations and a graveyard veggie pizza!

I took my inspiration from A Taste of Home:


but in my version I doubled the recipe and added a lot more goodies! 


Graveyard Veggie Pizza



Crust
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon canola oil

Topping
3 cups cottage cheese
1 packet of ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup milk
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 cups shredded cheese 
1 cup chopped broccoli
1 cup chopped cauliflower
2 cans chopped ripe olives
1/3 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup chopped red onion
3/4 cup chopped banana peppers 
1 can green chiles 

Tombstones
1 package cream cheese
4 teaspoons sour cream
10 - 15 crackers

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crust
- combine flour, baking powder, and salt
- add milk and 1/4 cup oil, mix well
- shape into ball and knead 10ish times
- on a lightly floured surface, roll into a 15x10 rectangle 
-transfer into an ungreased pan.
-prick with a fork and brush with remaining oil
- bake at 425 for 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
 (I noticed mine needed a little more time because I made it thicker)
- let cool completely before adding toppings


Topping
- combine cottage cheese, ranch dressing mix, mayo, and milk
- spread over crust 
- sprinkle with lettuce, cheese, broccoli, cauliflower, olives, carrots, onions, banana peppers, and green chiles


Tombstones
- beat cream cheese and sour cream until fluffy
- place mixture in a ziplock baggy
- cut a small hole in the corner of the bag or if you are fancy get out your cookie decorating tools
- decorate crackers 


Even though Halloween isn't my fave, I enjoyed whipping up the festive veggie pizza! I was nervous about making a homemade crust and bringing it to work after my first time of making it. Needless to say it was a huge hit and very delicious!
