Unroll crescent dough, separate into 16 triangles. Arrange on pizza pan forming a ring with the pointed ends facing the outer edge of the pan and wide ends overlapping. Spoon chicken mixture over wide ends. Thinly slice tomato and place on top of chicken mixture all the way around the ring. Fold over points (tucking the points underneath the wide ends).
