Spinach-Tomato Pie
Recipe from Vegetarian Times

This easy-to-make Mediterranean-style spinach pie is equally good served hot or at room temperature. It's laced with vision protectors from the spinach and the cancer fighters in cooked tomatoes. You can also substitute a package of frozen chopped broccoli for the spinach, and use a premade pie crust for the pizza crust.
