Incorporate those fresh summer vegetables into a protein-packed snack with these colorful Avocado Ranch Pizza Bites!

These Avocado Ranch Veggie Pizza Bites - made with protein-rich Greek Yogurt - are a delicious way to load up on your vegetables!It’s no secret that Grady is a bit of a picky eater, particularly when it comes to vegetables. Whenever we go to his annual well child checks, the doctor inquires about the typical topics: sleep habits, physical activity levels, growth patterns and, of course, nutrition. The question inevitably arises about what kinds of vegetables Grady likes to eat. The answer is always the same: carrots-and-dip. (Together. Not separate.) The doctor usually laughs at this “new” food group, but it is completely true. I can usually get Grady to eat (or at least try) most veggies as long as there is a bottle of ranch dressing nearby. So it couldn’t have been more fitting that Hidden Valley® – the people that invented ranch – asked us to create a recipe using their new Greek Yogurt Dips Mix.

These Avocado Ranch Veggie Pizza Bites are a colorful, tasty way to combine all of that good-for-you summer produce that will soon be overflowing at local markets – or maybe even your own backyard, if you’re lucky enough to have a green thumb! The new Hidden Valley® Greek Yogurt Dips Mix is specially formulated to be used with Greek yogurt, so you get the same great ranch flavor you expect from Hidden Valley® combined with the protein power (and lower fat) of Greek yogurt.

Aside from some peeling and chopping, this recipe comes together quickly. Cut and bake crescent roll dough into bite-sized squares. Stir some nutrition-dense pureed avocado and protein-packed Greek yogurt into the Hidden Valley® Greek Yogurt Dips Mix. Slather dip on the baked squares and top with whatever colorful assortment of veggies you have in your fridge.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) package seamless crescent roll dough

  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Unwrap crescent roll dough and roll out slightly until dough is uniformly thick. Use a pizza cutter or dull knife to cut dough into 2 inch squares. (I ended up with about 24 squares.) Place dough squares on two large baking sheets. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown, rotating pans halfway through. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, combine Hidden Valley® Greek Yogurt Dips Mix with yogurt and avocado. Stir well. Evenly spread dip on each crescent roll square and top with assorted chopped vegetables. Serve immediately.
