Wilt 200g spinach and squeeze out excess water once cooled. Mist a large baking sheet with cooking spray and shape the rested pizza dough out thinly using your fingers. Leave for 30 minutes in a warm place. When ready to top, spread the tomato sauce over the base, add the spinach and 1 sliced pepper.
