    List of Ingredients

    1 10-oz. can refrigerated pizza crust (or homemade pizza crust)
    Cooking spray
    1 10-oz. package frozen chopped spinach - thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
    1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
    1 cup evaporated skim milk
    Salt and pepper to taste
    2 large egg whites
    1 large egg
    3/4 cup Caramelized Onions (about 3 cups uncooked), see instructions
    1/3 cup chopped Canadian bacon (optional)
    1/4 cup low fat cheddar cheese


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Shape the dough into a 4-inch circle; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Roll the dough into an 11-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Fit the dough into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray, and flute.

    Combine the spinach and sour cream in a small bowl. Combine the evaporated milk, salt, pepper, egg whites, and egg in a medium bowl, and stir well with a whisk. Stir 1/3 cup milk mixture into spinach mixture. Spoon the spinach mixture into bottom of prepared crust. Add the caramelized onions (to caramelize onions, simply saute onions till very browned and almost sweet. Use as little butter or oil as possible), and top with the bacon and cheese. Pour the remaining milk mixture over cheese. Place pie plate on a baking sheet, and bake for 45 minutes, or until set. Let quiche stand 10 minutes before digging in.

    HINT: If you had the time, you could make pizza dough in your bread machine and use that instead, however the stuff in a can isn't a bad option.
