Cold Veggie Pizza

I served this one up at our Holiday Party this year and have had several requests for the recipe.  After much anticipation here it is for you.  And before anyone asks.  Yes, surprisingly Pilsbury Original Crescent Rolls are Vegan.  I had to do a little research on this and some issues arose as to the DATEM, diacetyltartaric acid esters of monoglycerides, which is often from animal sources, and is found in the ingredients list.  Luckily for us, someone wrote to Pilsbury and inquired on the matter.  Their entire response can be found here on the vegweb site. They state that their DATEM is not sourced from an animal and no other ingredients in this product are sourced from an animal.  So off we go!
