A gusty marinade for the chicken provides plenty of flavor for this gourmet pizza.

2 tablespoons pine nuts
1/2 cup sliced green onions, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 skinned and boned chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 (16oz.) Italian bread shell (Boboli)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Bake pine nuts in a shallow pan at 350 degrees, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until toasted. Set aside.

Combine 1/4 cup green onions, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; add chicken, stirring to coat. Cover and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade.

Cook chicken in remaining 1 tablespoon hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes or until done, stirring often.

Stir cornstarch into reserved marinade; add to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Spoon mixture onto bread shell. Sprinkle with cheeses.

Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup green onions and reserved pine nuts, and bake 2 more minutes.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
