Pizza Quiche - a new favorite! Great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This only takes a few minutes to make and it tastes great! Quiche loaded with sausage, pepperoni, mozzarella, tomato paste, and Italian seasoning. OMG! SO good! It is already back on the menu again this week. Beats the heck out of leftover cold pizza for breakfast!
In a large skillet, cook sausage until well browned, stirring frequently. Drain off grease. Add tomato paste to skillet and stir to combine.
Spread cooked sausage in the bottom of pie crust. Top with pepperoni and shredded cheese.
Whisk together eggs, heavy cream, sour cream, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Pour over sausage mixture in the pie crust.
Bake 1 hour. Allow quiche to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
You can use a frozen or homemade pie crust. Either is just fine.
I did not thaw or pre-bake the crust before baking.
You can use Italian sausage or breakfast sausage such as Jimmy Dean.
Feel free to add any of your favorite pizza toppings to the filling. Mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, olives, anything you like!
Can Homemade Quiche be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the quiche ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight.
Can Homemade Quiche be frozen? Yes! You can make this quiche ahead of time and freeze it baked or unbaked for later. I prefer to freeze the quiche unbaked. Assemble the quiche and place it in the freezer. Once the quiche is frozen place it in a freezer bag. When ready to bake, thaw the quiche in the refrigerator before baking as directed below.
To freeze the baked quiche, cool the quiche completely and wrap the pie plate with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. When ready to reheat, thaw and reheat in the oven or microwave before serving.
How long will Homemade Quiche last? The quiche will keep 3 to 4 days covered in the refrigerator.
