  • One

    10-oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, excess liquid removed (see HG Tip)

  • 1 1/2

    cups light/low-fat ricotta cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9" X 13" glass baking pan with nonstick spray. Place dough in the pan, and stretch into a large rectangle of even thickness, covering the bottom of the pan. Pierce several times with a fork. Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cook and stir until slightly softened and lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer veggies to medium-large bowl, and blot dry. Add crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Mix well. In a large bowl, combine spinach, ricotta cheese, egg whites/substitute, chopped garlic, and salt. Mix until uniform. Evenly distribute half of the spinach-ricotta mixture onto the dough, smoothing the surface with the back of a spoon. Top with half of the veggie-tomato mixture. Repeat layering with remaining spinach-ricotta mixture and veggie-tomato mixture. Top with mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with olives. Bake until cheese has melted and crust is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
