This is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover veggies. It's a cinch to prep and you can change the mixture to match your kids' taste buds. Always popular at special events, it's just as yummy the next day. —Heather Ahrens, Columbus, Ohio
This hearty, creamy and full-bodied veggie pizza, served as an appetizer, brought oohs and aahs from our tasting panel at first sight. The dish, from Sandra Shafer of Mountain View, California is completely packed with good-for-you cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms and other vegetables.
"I originally made this yummy veggie pizza to share with a friend who was watching her cholesterol," says Laura Kadlec of Maiden Rock, Wisconsin. "But it's so good, I serve it to my family often. Even the kids munch on it."
Perfect for two and gluten-free dieters, too, this from-scratch pizza created by our Test Kitchen has a tasty crust that holds up well when you add sauce, cheese and various veggies. Plus, it's easy to prepare.
The popularity of this dish starts with its appearance, according to Carol Severson of Shelton, Washington. "You can sprinkle the pizza with plenty of colorful toppings," she assures. "Guests will be attracted right away. Then, when they have a taste, one slice just won't be enough!"
AT HARVEST PARTIES, fall festivals or any autumn event, the flavorful fellow here will raise a crop of smiles! To stuff this savory appetizer full of good taste, our Test Kitchen cooks shaped a scarecrow using red peppers, carrots, broccoli and lots of other fresh veggies. Since you can make the crust with refrigerated dough and quickly prepare a cream cheese spread to put on top, you'll be ready to form your own colorful character in no time.
This tasty pizza will disappear in a hurry at your next gathering, so you may want to prepare two! "It's a great snack or light supper, especially for warm summer days," relates Mary Lynd of Minford, Ohio.
