This Traeger Smoked Veggie Pizza recipe is perfect for feeding a crowd at a party or celebration.
It’s easily made ahead of time and served cold, not to mention insanely delicious!
We are using the Traeger to cook the pizza crust at a higher temperature, then using it to smoke the cream cheese low and slow.
It keeps in the fridge for a few days too if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers.
A slight smoky flavor makes it unique.
But it’s not overwhelmingly smoky so your guests will be wondering what makes this veggie pizza extra special.
How to Make Traeger Smoked Veggie Pizza
Set the Traeger to 325 degrees and prepare the pizza crust as it preheats.
Spray two baking sheets with non stick cooking spray and lay a package of crescent roll dough on each.
Pinch together the seams and poke with a fork all over to keep the crusts flat.
Then place them on the Traeger grill grate.
The crusts will cook 16 to 18 minutes.
Keep an eye on them the last few minutes to make sure the bottom doesn’t get too brown.
Remove the crusts and lower the Traeger temperature to 180 degrees for the cream cheese.
Cut diagonal slices in two blocks of cream cheese placed on foil.
This will allow maximum smoky flavor to get in the cream cheese.
Place the foil with the cream cheese on the pellet grill set to 180 degrees for 2 hours.
You can actually see the smoky flavor on the golden brown cream cheese!
The cheesy spread for the pizzas is a mixture of the smoked cream cheese, a packet of dry ranch seasoning, and fresh dill if you have it.
Put it all in a bowl and mix together while the cream cheese is still warm from the smoker.
And spread evenly over the cooked crescent roll crusts.
My toppings of choice are broccoli, carrots, red pepper, and cheese.
I got the carrots already shredded and I diced the red pepper and broccoli pretty small.
Then add the chopped veggies on the pizzas, pressing them into the cream cheese so they stick.
Top with the cheese and some chives or green onions, again pressing slightly so they stick together, and a little sprinkle of kosher salt and pepper.
