Deep Dish Pizza Quiche

Thea Pappalardo


This is a very low carb recipe that I made when I was on Atkin's and couldn't have pizza. I still make it because my husband and I both love it.

4 oz
cream cheese, softened
4 large
1/3 c
heavy cream or 1/2 & 1/2
1/4 c
1/2 tsp
italian seasoning
2 c
shredded mozzarella
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 c
pizza sauce or marinara sauce
1 c
shredded mozzarella
toppings such as pepperoni, mushrooms, bacon, sausage, olives, etc

Directions Step-By-Step

Beat together the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add cream, parmesan, garlic and Italian seasoning. Spray a 9" or larger glass baking dish with Pam. I always use a bigger pan because I like a thin "crust". Add 2 cups mozzarella to the pan and pour egg mixture over it. Bake in a 375 oven for 20-30 minutes or until set.
Spread "crust" with pizza sauce, add remaining cup of mozzarella and add your favorite toppings. Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
