It is no big secret that my family loves cream cheese around here. Our favorite is Philly cream cheese, we love all the flavors they have! Sunday morning always consists of all of us watching cartoons while having a bagel breakfast, each with our own favorite flavor of cream cheese spread on those toasty bagels.
I also love to cook with cream cheese, everything from appetizers to classic cheesecakes. So this week I was at Walmart shopping for our first bbq of the season and I knew I wanted to make an appetizer but I wanted something fresh and bright.
I was picking up cream cheese for our breakfast when I spotted Philadelphia Cream Cheese Chive & Onion now had more vegetables in it. That sounded like it would make the perfect appetizer. So I gathered the rest of my ingredients and headed home to get started.
I cannot say enough how perfect this pizza is, it tastes almost like veggies and dip but on crusty bread. The Chive & Onion cream cheese melds perfectly with the buttery crescents while bringing a burst of creamy flavor to the vegetables.
This appetizer is quick, delicious, full of fresh veggies and always a crowd-pleaser!
This was such a hit at my bbq and everyone wanted the recipe. I really loved it because it took no time at all to prepare and fresh and great tasting appetizer. I think this will be a staple around here from now, I can’t wait to mix it up with seasonal vegetables.
I promise this will be your go to recipe this spring/summer for all your potlucks, bbqs and makes the perfect snack for lounging by the pool.
Philly also makes some amazing fruit cream cheeses, also with more fruit, and I think they would perfectly in this recipe too, just spread the rolls with strawberry or blueberry Philadelphia cream cheese and top with your favorite fruit for a sweet spin on this appetizer.
So grab some Philly cream cheese, hit that produce section and make this spectacular Fresh Vegetable Pizza yourself!
With more fruit and vegetables in their Blueberry, Chive & Onion, Garden Vegetable, Jalapeno, and Strawberry varieties, how will you #SpreadTheFlavor?
