Pepperoni-Sausage Deep-Dish Pizza Quiche

A popular line from the  "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot. The theme of his  poem is the despair.  J. Alfred Prufrock looks back over how he has lived his life. In this quote Prufrock is talking about the sameness of every day of his life. He is mourning the fact that now that he's older and hasn't done anything important with his life.

Pepperoni and Sausage Deep-Dish Pizza Quiche
A gift of fresh basil from a friend's garden spiraled this recipe into the making.
Cook's Notes: Can't decide between quiche and pizza when both sound good? Then this recipe might just be the one for you. It combines all your favorite Italian  pizza flavors into a brunch or dinner item. Recipe adapted from Taste of Home August September 2019 
I used a 11 inch quiche dish but a 9 x 9 square pan would work,increase your baking time by a few minutes.   
  • 3 cups pizza cheese, divided
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon each garlic powder, Italian seasoning, parsley flakes 
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup chopped pepperoni
  • Fresh basil, optional
  • Soften cream cheese a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle 1 cup pizza cheese in a greased quiche dish or 9 x 9 baking dish. 
  • In a small bowl, beat eggs, cream cheese, milk, Parmesan, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and parsley. Pour into dish and bake 22 minutes.
  • Remove and spread 1 cup pizza sauce over egg mixture; top with cooked crumbled sausage, pepperoni and remaining cheese. Bake until golden brown and bubbly 10 minutes and add snipped fresh basil last two minutes cooking time.

  • Let quiche set 5 minutes before cutting. Top with fresh basil.
