SUPER! So good, so quick, so easy. It must be magic - it disappeared before my eyes. No one felt like a big dinner tonight so I decided to try your recipe and the family is so glad I did. Made it for 5 servings instead of 10 since there were only 3 of us eating. I used ingredients I had on hand. One can of refrigerated prepared pizza crust, Bavarian Honey Ham thinly sliced, Lorraine Swiss also thinly sliced and Honey Mustard. I rolled it up jelly roll style and left it that way since half the recipe is not enough to form a wreath. Brushed it with the egg and baked for 30 minutes. I did not do the glazed holly leaves or berries - I'll do it that way for Christmas time. Leaving that part out made the prep time only about 10 minutes. Presto it was done and presto it was gone - with rave reviews. Wish I had made the 10 servings, everyone wanted more. This would be great done on a baking stone too. Thanks for a posting -it's a keeper!

Very simple, very good. Could easily become a weekend lunch standard.
