It is really important to use ciabatta bread or something else that has a thicker, heartier crust to help prevent your sandwich from getting soggy. I also recommend using a high quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar as it can really affect the flavor. Remember with balsamic vinegar - a little goes a LONG way.
This is for one sandwich but it's easy to make a couple of them. They do not store well so be sure to eat it right after making it although you can make a "kit" of all of the making of the sandwich so that if want to eat this at work you can just have all the pieces and just assemble on your break or whatever.
Ciabatta roll (or in a pinch you can use kaiser rolls)
Fresh Cracked Pepper
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1 roasted red bell pepper (if using the kind in a jar be sure to pat it as dry as you can using paper towels or something)
thinly sliced red onion
thinly sliced tomato
4-6 fresh mozzarella medallions
garlic salt with parsley
1. Sprinkle or spritz the inside of the roll with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Top with spinach, red bell pepper, onion, tomato, mozzarella. Top the mozzarella with fresh cracked pepper and a light sprinkling of the garlic salt.
And that's really it.

add Fresh, Roasted or Grilled mushrooms, especially portabella, they lend a nice earthiness to the overall flavor.
Use roasted Hatch green chiles in place of the roasted red peppers
