Peperoni Pizza Quiche

Peperoni Pizza Quiche  by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Quiche was one of the first things I learned how to make on my own. It was like nothing my family had ever made, and I only knew about it through seeing it on cooking shows and hearing friends talk about it. At first I was so intimidated by it. The word quiche, it sounds so fancy, like something an average person would have alot of trouble making.

The very first time I tried quiche at a brunch with my friends at a restaurant downtown. It was by far the best thing I had ever put in my mouth. It was incredible how something so simple could be so good. And on top of that it was a breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner item! Win!

It didn’t take long to figure it out how to make quiche. You can make it super rich with heavy cream, or make it low fat with skim milk. I just used the simple ratio of 1 cup milk to two eggs. You can add any type of vegetables, meats or herbs you want. I began to make quiches several times a week, making them as a way to clean out the fridge.

For this quiche though, I wanted to make something that appealed more to my son, instead of the veggie filled craziness that I usually do. This quiche is pretty simple, just some chopped tomatoes, black olives and lots of fresh basil and mozzarella. I then top the quiche with lots of peperoni before baking it. To save on fat and calories, I used turkey peperoni.
