How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F. Spray 15x10x1-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl; stir in sugar and 1 teaspoon oil. Gradually stir in flour, whole wheat flour and salt to make soft dough. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 to 15 times. Roll out to 16x11-inch rectangle. Place into prepared pan; press dough 1/2 inch up sides of pan. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat 1 teaspoon oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet; add onion. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, 10-12 minutes or until soft and golden. Stir in green peppers; continue cooking 2-3 minutes or until crisply tender. Stir in pecans, thyme, salt and pepper. Spread vegetable mixture over crust; bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with cheese. Continue baking 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. Cut into pieces.
