Just unroll a refrigerated pizza crust, brush it with oil and herbs, and you're ready to build and grill a super salad sandwich!
Updated Feb 22, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Classic Crust Pizza Crust
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 package (6 oz) refrigerated cooked Italian-style chicken breast strips, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions (2 medium)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices (about 1 oz each) Jarlsberg cheese (from deli)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Grease large cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Unroll dough onto cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 15x10-inch rectangle. Brush oil over dough. Sprinkle evenly with Italian seasoning.
  • 2
    Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix chicken, onions and mayonnaise.
  • 3
    Cut baked crust in half crosswise. Spread chicken mixture on 1 half. Top with tomato and cheese, cutting to fit if necessary. Cover with remaining half of baked crust, seasoning side down. Cut into 4 sandwiches.
  • 4
    Heat 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Place 2 sandwiches in skillet; cook about 2 minutes, pressing down with pancake turner, until bottom crust is deep golden brown. Turn sandwiches; cook about 2 minutes, pressing again with turner, until cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Though a skillet works fine for finishing these sandwiches, an electric contact grill--one that has two surfaces and closes--is ideal for the job. The times may differ, so watch the panini closely.
