Colorful Crab Appetizer Pizza

 Colorful Crab Appetizer Pizza
If you're looking for a really easy and special appetizer, this one stands out. It's a fresh-tasting and lovely variation on a cold vegetable pizza. I make it as a snack for parties all the time and even for a light main dish with a soup or salad.
