Mayo free veggie pizza

It's well known among family and friends that I hate mayonnaise. No. I don't just hate it. I have a fear of it. I can't even touch the jar. If the jar is touching my beloved Red Bull I can't drink it until someone else has washed the can for me. Mayo is a key factor in so many delicious dishes and I'm always disappointed at parties and cookouts when I see something that probably has mayo in it but I'm too embarrassed to ask so I just skip it and end up eating chips on a bun or something. So I make it a personal challenge to try to make recipes and find a mayo substitute. 

This is one of my favorite mayo free recipes: veggie pizza!


2 cans of crescent rolls 
2 packages of cream cheese
1-2 packages of hidden valley ranch dip mix (depending on how ranchy you like it)
1 container 16 oz sour cream
Shredded cheddar cheese
Various veggies - I always use broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, and bell peppers


Spread crescent rolls out on nonstick cookie sheet, follow baking directions on can. 

While crust is cooking, in a bowl mix the cream cheese (soften in microwave first), sour cream, and ranch dip mix. 

Spread mixture onto cooked cooled crust. 

Dice up all veggies and spread on top of cream cheese / sour cream mixture. 

Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. 

Voila! Ready to enjoy! 

I always use reduced fat products and it still tastes delicious. This dish is great for parties. And if you're gluten free you can use a cauliflower crust instead of crescent rolls! And if you're vegan/dairy free...eat the veggies?

I don't use a lot of shredded cheese because I'm always trying to cut calories
