Christmas Pizza

This is my sister's recipe. She calls it "White Pizza" but I renamed it for the holiday. It's a fun-looking dish and people in the past have enjoyed it.

You can prepared the crust the day before and store it as you would bread. You'll need:

1 can Crescent rolls
1 8 oz. package cream cheese (with a little milk to thin it)
1 green pepper
couple of slices of red onion
pimento-stuffed olives

Bust open the can of rolls (I really hate to do this, shudder) and spread out all of the triangles in a round pizza pan. Bake per instructions but keep an eye on them -- unfolded like that they brown faster. Assemble them loosely in a pizza shape; you want the "cutting holes" to be visible.

Let your pizza crust cool and then thin the cream cheese and "butter" the crust with it generously. Cut rings of green pepper and put them on; cut a slice of red onion and put those rings on top. Slice the olives into rounds and place them artistically among the green pepper and red onion rings. Put it out with a pizza cutter and stand back and admire your handiwork.
