Since there is no way to spin the oil pump remotely, I suppose that the next best thing would be to disable both the fuel and ignition systems prior to initial start-up, and spin the engine with the starter until the oil pressure builds. Then restore the power to the ignition and fuel systems and fire it up.

Good luck!

I don't think that it is absolutely necessary, but it would make it easier on the starter if the spark plugs are removed.

Unplug the COPs, spin it for 30 seconds via the starter. Plug the COPs in, start it. Not hard. No need to remove the plugs, that is just a waste of time.
