Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

These veggie pizza squares make a great appetizer or meal on their own. A nicely chilled pizza with wonderful flavors. Anyone you make this for will be crazy over them and demand the recipe. Black olives are in the picture, but I omit them.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares
1 tube refrigerated Pizza dough
1 8 ozpkg. cream cheese, softened
1 1oz. pkg. ranch dressing mix
2 carrots, finely chopped (I use bagged shredded carrots)
1/2 c. chopped red bell pepper
1/2 c. chopped green bell pepper
1/2 c. fresh broccoli, chopped
1/2 c. chopped green onions

Preheat oven to 400. Roll out dough onto a large non-stick baking sheet. Bake crust 9-11 min. in the preheated oven until golden brown. Allow to cool. Place cream cheese in a medium bowl. Mix cream cheese with 1/2 of the ranch dressing mix. Adjust the amount of dressing mix to taste. Spread the mixture over the cooled crust. Arrange carrots, red & green bell pepper, broccoli and green onions on top. Chill in refrigerator for approx. 1 hour Cut into bite-size squares.
