Mediterranean Crown Appetizer and a Tex - Mex Option

I received this recipe via a video from a friend in France. It was difficult to get a recipe so I copied a link to post it on my Blog. I was able to create some still photographs from the video.
It looks delicious and I will definitely make it.
In order for me to be able to print the recipe I have to break it down and create it myself.
It's an appetizer "crown" or wreath.
It can certainly be customized to your personal taste.

Here are photographs that I took from the video:
They're not in any order but it gives you an idea of the process and the final dish.

Mediterranean Crown Appetizer

Puff Pastry and a bowl to use as a template.

The outer ring is sprinkled with Dried Oregano.

Cut the center into wedges to pull back over the Ring.

Egg Wash

Cover the Ring with Sliced Black Olives.

1 Zucchini, unpeeled and sliced.

Puff Pastry Circle

Tomato slices

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Egg Wash

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
1 - Round Pizza Pan
A Bowl create a template in the center of the Puff Pastry Dough.(you'll see it in the video)

This is a pretty vague recipe so the amounts of ingredients will change according to the size Appetizer you make.
