Meanwhile, heat dressing in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken, onions and crushed red pepper; cook and stir 5 min. or until chicken is no longer pink and onions are crisp-tender.
Spread crust with pesto sauce. Top with chicken mixture, roasted red peppers, tomatoes and cheese.
Bake 10 to 12 min. or until chicken is done and cheese is melted. Remove tart from rim of pan. Cut into wedges to serve.
How to Roast Peppers

Place in paper bag; close bag. Let stand 20 min. or until peppers are cooled. Remove peppers from bag. Peel away blackened skins with small knife; discard skins. Cut peppers lengthwise in half; remove and discard seeds. Use roasted peppers as directed in recipe.
