I made this today for lunch, and it is delicious! I adapted the amounts, since I was topping just one whole grain naan rather than 4 pitas. I used all the onion called for, probably 2 cups of spinach that I chopped a bit (regular rather than baby spinach, since I need the potassium), and 1/4 c. of mozzarella. I also only used a bit of olive oil on the bread. Such a quick lunch, and so great! I'll be making this a lot! Oh, and by the way, leftovers taste great cold, right out of the fridge for a snack, too!
