Veggie Pizza (Wicked Stepmothers)

2 pkgs. crescent rolls
1 pkg. Uncle Dan's ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup sour cream
1-8oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup chopped broccoli florets
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar or sharp cheddar cheese

Unroll 2 pkgs. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, flat onto a large baking sheet, gently pressing edges together to make one large crust. Poke holes in dough, then bake 10 to 12 minutes at 400 degrees.  Cool completely.

Blend cream cheese, mayo, sour cream & seasoning package together. Spread over cooled crust.  Sprinkle mixed veggies & grated cheese on top and pat gently. Cut into small squares or triangles.  Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 5 hours.


2 cans whole water chestnuts
1 lb. bacon (cut slices into thirds)
1 cup soy sauce
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar

Drain water chestnuts and place in a small bowl or liquid measuring cup.  Add soy sauce and soak for a few minutes.  Wrap each water chestnut with bacon, then secure with a toothpick and place on a baking sheet.  Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until crisp.  Drain grease from baking sheet.  Stir together brown sugar and ketchup and pour over the rumaki.  Gently stir to coat.  Bake for another 12-15 minutes until glaze has set.  Serve immediately.  (You may wrap the chestnuts with bacon several hours or even the night before your party to save time.)
