  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put 2 large baking trays in the oven to heat up.
  2. Spread the passata over the top of each naan, leaving a 1cm border. Top each with mozzarella, Cheddar, onion and olives, then season with black pepper. Transfer to the hot trays and bake for 12-15 mins until the cheese has melted and the naans are golden and crisp.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the oil, half the lemon juice, a little lemon zest and some seasoning in a salad bowl to make a dressing. Add the spinach and cucumber and toss well to coat. Add more lemon juice, to taste, if needed. Top the naan with the basil leaves and serve with the salad.
