Raw vegetables make a crunchy pizza topping which is different to most soft pizza toppings. This raw vegetable pizza recipe is made with crescent rolls rather than pizza dough and the creamy pizza sauce goes beautifully with the simple crispness of the raw vegetables.

Vegetable pizza is healthy and this makes a delicious lunch. Because this is such a nice looking pizza, it is nice to use a combination of red, yellow, and green bell peppers to make it even more colorful. You can add other vegetables too, such as grated carrots or grated zucchini.

There are many ways to make pizza unique, such as swapping the traditional crust for crescent rolls, a potato and onion crust, tortillas, or something else, or even using unusual toppings or an adventurous sauce. This recipe takes pizza to a whole new level though, not only swapping the typical crust for crescent rolls, but also using 2 different sauces.

First you have a herbed creamy sauce and on top of that goes a tomato sauce.
