TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 2 cups thinly sliced fresh spinach
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded provolone cheese
  • 3/4 cup water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 teaspoons cornmeal
  • Marinara sauce, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Unroll pizza dough; cut into six 4-1/2-in. squares. Spoon 1 cup chicken mixture onto the center of each square; brush edges of dough with water. Fold one corner of each square over filling to the opposite corner, forming a triangle. Using a fork, crimp edges to seal.
  • 2. Sprinkle cornmeal over a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Place pockets in pan; prick tops with a fork. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
