This section provides a quick rundown of the ingredients used in this easy pepperoni quiche recipe. For complete measurements and step-by-step instructions, please scroll to the recipe card located at the bottom of this post.

  • Eggs and Heavy Cream: At the heart of all our crustless quiche creations are two large eggs and 4 tablespoons of heavy cream. These ingredients ensure a rich, custard-like texture. Consider using leftover cream in Tuscan Chicken, Fettuccine Alfredo, and in a mug of rich Hot Chocolate.
  • Seasonings: Elevate the flavor with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Alternatively, you can switch out the Italian seasoning for fresh or dried basil and oregano, based on your preference.
  • Pepperoni and Mozzarella Cheese: These are the stars of the show, mimicking the classic elements of a pepperoni pizza. Feel adventurous? Switch out the cheese type or swap the pepperoni for crumbled, cooked sausage. If you’ve got leftover pepperoni and mozzarella, consider using them to make a French Bread Pizza or a Personal Pepperoni Pizza.

    Can you use milk instead of heavy cream

    1. Joanie Zisk says:

      You can use milk instead of cream but cream gives the quiche a rich and more custardy texture.

  2. Joyce says:

    This was great I put red onion and yellow pepper in this.

  3. J. Hegyi says:

    Terrific recipe. You can also add 1/4 cup each of any (or several) vegetables into the quiche, if you like.

  4. Lynette says:

    Made this tonight. I added mushrooms, red bell pepper, and onion. I also added pizza sauce the last 5 minutes. I will definitely be making this again. It is a good way to use leftover veggies and meats.

  5. Aloha Kirsch says:

    I made the Pizza Quiche today & didn’t have pepperoni so I used crumbled cooked ssausage & also added onion powder, basil & oregano. I had a half of a plum tomato that I chopped & added. I lightly buttered my dish but when I cut my quiche it was sticking to the bottom. I baked it for 30
    Min. The top was light brown. Not sure if I baked it too long? It still tasted delicious. Will definitely make it again.

  6. Bettie Hammock says:

    My daughter and I just finished eating Just finished eating the “crustless Pizza Quiche for One” this morning. Love, Love it. I didn’t have pepperoni so I chopped up fresh asparagus and it was delicious. I am 88 years old and have just found your web site, bought the book and am enjoying all of it. Thank you soooo much.

  7. Stephanie S says:

    I cut the recipe in half, used diced canadian bacon rather than the pepperoni and skipped the Italian seasoning. Baked in a ramekin, perfect delicious breakfast for one.

  8. Ann M. says:

    As a diabetic I truly appreciate this recipe. It’s packed full of protein, is low carb and best of all it’s made with ingredients I typically have on hand. Actually, the best part is that it tastes great and is quick and easy to prepare. I will definitely be making this regularly and appreciate that the base recipe is easily adaptable to ingredients I have available. Big thumbs up!

  9. Joanne Sommers says:

    Perfect meal, loaded with protein, super delish👌👌

  10. Lynn says:

    I made this tonight and it was REALLY good. It truly does taste like pizza and I didn’t even notice there’s no tomato sauce. I added some chopped green pepper and minced onion and think I’ll add some sliced mushrooms next time. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!
