My family loves dividing up this super-easy sandwich that's brimming with great spinach and onion flavor. Refrigerated pizza dough shaves minutes off prep time and creates a golden brown crust. The cheesy slices taste terrific warm or cold, so they're great for lunches, picnics or trips. —Mary Nichols Denver, New Hampshire

"This is just a Basic Italian Recipe Passed Down Through Centuries in ITALY ... I was looking for something to help me remember how to Saute the Spinach since my mother is NO LONGER WITH US ... A person needs to know HOW TO COOK to make it ... I saw these reviews and I'm sure they only know how to BURN WATER ... That person Below needs a good lesson in Spinach or Talk to Popeye the Sailor"

"Threw hqlf of this away. We didn't care for it at all. IF I try something like this again, I will try the French bread instead of pizza dough. And, still trying to figure out what spices might make it taste better. I love spinach, love spinach pizza, and was really looking forward to this. We even used spaghetti sauce for dipping. Didn't help."

"I didn't have any frozen spinach, so I used canned (with liquid squeezed out). I also made my own pizza dough. I made half the recipe with spinach and then tried making the other half with pepperoni instead of spinach. I added some Italian seasoning to that one. I really enjoyed both of them."
