Preheat oven to 350°F. In skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until slightly softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomato paste and hot pepper flakes; continue cooking, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, red peppers and oregano. Season with salt and pepper; stir. Bring to boil, breaking up toma­toes slightly with wooden spoon. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture has thickened slightly, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in spinach. Remove from heat.

Arrange bread slices in single layer on two parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Cover bread with chickpea mixture; sprinkle with cheese.

Bake until cheese is melted and bread is toasted, about 5 minutes. Place under broiler until cheese is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
