Ingredients (12)

  • ½ cup reduced-fat, shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ each bell pepper (red, green, yellow), finely diced
  • ¼ cup grated carrot
  • ½ cup reduced-fat cream cheese (tub)
  • 1 beaten egg yolk with 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tube (7.5 ounce) refrigerator buttermilk biscuits (10 per tube)
  • 5 slices tomato
  • flour for dusting surface, rolling pin
  • grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • sliced black olives
  • multi-color bell peppers cut into shapes (such as stars, half moons, zig-zags)

Steps (7)

  • Step 1
    Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
  • Step 2
    In a large bowl mix the cream cheese, Hidden Valley® Ranch Light Buttermilk Salad Dressing, mozzarella cheese, diced bell peppers, and carrots until well combined; set aside.
  • Step 3
    Open the biscuits and separate. Sprinkle flour over a clean dry surface. Take a rolling pin, and roll each biscuit into a 4” circle. Using a pastry brush, brush some of the egg yolk mixture around the edge of each circle.
  • Step 4
    Spread a heaping tablespoon of the cheesy-ranch mixture onto five biscuit circles, then put a tomato slice on top. Place one of the remaining biscuit circles on top of each filled circle. Stretch the top circle to completely cover the bottom circle; press around the edges with the tines of a fork to seal.
  • Step 5
    Use a spatula to place each of the flying saucers onto a greased baking sheet. Brush some more of the egg yolk mixture over the tops of each flying saucer and decorate with sliced veggies — use your imagination to create fun designs.
  • Step 6
    Bake 15–16 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  • Step 7
    Transfer the flying saucers to a wire rack and let stand about 5 minutes before serving.
