Adapted from a recipe in my Best of Country Cooking Cookbook collection. This quick pizza-like dish is great for an appetizer, or for a luncheon or light dinner. If garlic butter crescent rolls are available, I use 1 clove garlic; if not available, I use plain crescent rolls and 2 cloves garlic. I make this frequently for Sunday afternoon get-togethers. Since we go to church on Sunday mornings, I prepare everything the night before: I bake the crust, sauté ingredients and assemble everything, cover and refrigerate. When I get home from church all I have to do is take it out of the fridge and put it in the oven just until warmed through and cheese is melted. Couldn't be easier!
