Easy Family Recipes: Summer Pizza Snack

Summer Pizza SnackLooking for a quick treat for the kids beyond beyond veggies and dip? This pizza-like snack sports plenty of veggies, and with the use of crescent rolls, a flaky and tender quick-cooking, no-hassle crust. Served cold, you can easily prepare the crust and cheesy topping, pop it in the fridge, then have the kids top with their favorite veggie options just before eating. This also makes a great lunch box item, just be sure to include a cold pack to keep things chilled to the proper temperature.
