The recipe was the “big” winner in the annual Pillsbury’s Bake Off Contest in the 70’s. I remember my mom making it & then I made it a few more times over the years during zucchini season. Well I happened to think of it the other day as I was practically buried in zucchini. I don’t typically buy dough in a can, except for the holidays, because SIL makes some fab sticky cinnamon rolls out of the Crescent rolls. Buy a 5 pack a year for T-Day & Xmas, so remembered I had a tube in the freezer. I decided t update this recipe & am elated to tell you that I’ve already got it into the 8o’s or 90’s!
I spread the crust with pesto, added some sun dried tomatoes in the zucchini filling, half Colby jack cheese & dollops of goat cheese. ( The Holy Trinity of the eighties - pesto, sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese!) The other big item of that era was white chocolate, which sadly I was unable to incorporate.
Soooo, I promise you, next time I make it, I’m going to bring it fully forth into the 20-teens,
The cust will look like flat bread, spread harissa over, sprinkle with sesame seeds, put some well placed olives & maybe a few chick peas over and top with Israeli feta - will let you know how it turns out.
