  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken and rosemary in oil until chicken is no longer pink; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, yeast, salt and basil. Add water; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover and rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Spread vinaigrette over crust. Layer with spinach, green pepper, mushrooms, onion and chicken. Sprinkle with cheese and tomatoes. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Yield: 8 pieces.

"I had varied success with the dough, but my roommates requested the meal so often I had plenty of chances to practice with it! A real crowd-pleaser."

"Made this last night for dinner - it was really tasty! In the future, I think I would make it in a bigger pan, as I like a thinner crust. I only used 1/2 of the dressing the recipe called for, but if I made it bigger I would probably need all of the dressing. Thank you for the great recipe!"
