Ingredients
  Reduced-fat cream cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Tub)
  Buttermilk salad dressing 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Hidden Valley® Ranch Light)
  Reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Red bell pepper 1⁄2 , finely diced
  Green bell pepper 1⁄2 , finely diced
  Yellow bell pepper 1⁄2 , finely diced
  Grated carrot 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), finely diced
  Fresh tomato slices 5
  Refrigerator buttermilk biscuits 7 1⁄2 Ounce (1 Tube, 10 Per Tube)
  Egg yolk 1 , beaten with 2 tablespoons water
  Water 2 Tablespoon (Used For Beating The Egg Yolk)
  Flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (For Dusting Surface And Rolling Pin)
  Grape tomatoes 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), sliced in half
  Sliced black olives 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Bell peppers 3 , cut into shapes like stars, half moons, zig-zags (Use Multi Color Bell Peppers)
Directions

1.Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. 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.

2.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.

3.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. Use a spatula to place each of the flying saucers onto a greased baking sheet. Decorate the tops of each flying saucer with sliced veggies – use your imagination to create fun designs. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Transfer the flying saucers to a wire rack and let stand about 5 minutes before serving.
