How to upcycle Thanksgiving leftovers!

So I hear you've got this fridge full of food and in about T-minus yesterday you're going to be sick of leftovers?  Well, I've got your back boo!

Easy Veggie Pizza

1 can crescent rolls
all leftover veggies  (carrots, brocc, peppers, onion, green onions...etc)
8oz (or more) Chive & Onion Cream Cheese
Garlic Salt & Pepper

1.  Lightly grease baking sheet.  Roll out crescent rolls on baking sheet and squish together to make crust.  Bake as directed.

2.  Chop up all leftover veggies into small pieces and place in bowl.  Season w/garlic salt & pepper and stir.

3.  Once crescent roll crust has cooled, spread with chive & onion cream cheese.

4.  In one even layer place all of the vegetables on crust.  Push down to ensure adhesion with cream cheese.  Voila, healthy-ish veggie pizza!

You're all set!  Here's to no more wasted leftovers!  Hooray!!

Until next time...
