Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic-herb seasoning blend
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Dash white pepper
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 plum tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oil, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, seasoning blend, whole wheat flour and 2-1/4 cups bread flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes.
  3. Punch dough down; roll into a 15-in. circle. Sprinkle cornmeal over a 14-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Transfer dough to prepared pan; build up edges slightly. Bake at 425° for 12-14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine flour and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the chicken, spinach, Parmesan cheese, pepper and remaining salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until spinach is wilted.
  5. Spread sauce over crust; top with remaining ingredients. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until cheeses are melted.
