Deep Dish Pizza Quiche
Some folks have asked me for the Deep Dish Pizza Quiche recipe that I like so much: :yum:


4 oz softened cream cheese
4 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
1 tbs chives
1/2 tsp Italian or pizza seasoning
2 cups shredded cheese (I use mozzarella/cheddar mix)
1/2 tsp wet garlic or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup lowest carb tomato or pizza sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Toppings to taste (I use pepperoni, sausage, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, whatever!)

Preheat oven to 375.
Beat together cream cheese and eggs till smooth (I use a blender).
Add cream, parmesean cheese and spices.
Spray 13x9 glass baking dish with PAM.
Put 2 cups of shredded cheese in dish and pour egg mixture over.
Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Spread with sauce and then add your toppings.
Cover with mozzarella cheese.
Bake till browning and bubbly (or however you like your 'za!)
Let stand for 5 minutes or so.

ENJOY! :agree:

I like to have mine with a salad. This freezes well also. I think it's just as easy to make two, then bag and freeze individual portions to throw into my lunchbox. I microwave them for about 3-5 minutes.

My DH and I have this at least once every 2 weeks. It is great with some grilled chicken and mushrooms. I am also thinking about trying some pesto with it too. Thanks DW!

Hi Donald,

This is a great recipe. Do you happen to have the nutritional info on this dish?


damaraq :roll:

I had friends over yesterday and made this for lunch with a salad and they didn't even know it was low carbs. They loved it. Do you know how many carbs are in this recipe though?



Azure Thu, Aug-08-02 10:00

made this last night with a slight variation. I took pepperoni slices that I had microwaved until crisp, then lined a deep-dish pizza pan with the pepperoni, then layered with the moz cheese and the quiche ingredients. Gave it a very "crust" like texture.

Thanks for sharing this recipe, Donald. It's one of my favorites.

waiting Sun, Aug-11-02 13:26

I am new here and am trying to find some good recipes. This sounds delicious!! I am adding it to my weekly meal plan for this week. I am sure it is really low in carbs especially if you use pizza sauce - the one I have says 4 carbs per serving. Thank you for sharing!! I can't wait to get some more recipes!!

ptjody Tue, Aug-13-02 17:50

:clap: Made this dish this evening and it was a hit with my husband and 3 sons. I used pepperoni as the bottom crust and that really added a wonderful flavor and texture. Delicious!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I look forward to having this frequently and to try different variations.

Tanyaskees Sun, Aug-18-02 17:11

It's in the oven now, can't wait to try it. I will come back with a report in a bit :).

Tanyaskees Sun, Aug-18-02 21:13

OMG, I think I died and gone to heaven. I actually had pizza, I haven't had pizza in almost a year. It was soooooo good..thank you Donald, I loved it.

deep dish pizza
This sounds amazing! I can't wait to try it. But I'm a little nervous because I don't know what the nutrition counts are. Does anybody know? :q:

prushus Mon, Aug-19-02 15:18

This pizza recipe sounds amazing! I'm a little nervous to try it though because I don't know the nutrition counts. Does anybody?

kellser Mon, Aug-19-02 16:46

ok Donald
I'm new around these parts but I want you to know that you - yes you are my hero. First of all I saw your before & after (really in progress) and you are a superstar look wonderful and then you offer me pizza.

Did I mention hero?

BlueChip Wed, Sep-11-02 10:41

Thank you so much Donald, I made this Monday night and it's almost gone! It is delicious. I added garlic and basil pizza sauce and used asparagus and turkey bacon as toppings. How many carbs per slice, anyone know? This one will definitely become part of my menu :D

Akiwican Wed, Sep-11-02 10:49

I made this again last night. It's great anytime of the day. :yum: As far the carb count goes it all depends on the topping you put on and in what quantity. You could try going to and entering the ingredients.

:wave: Akiwican

Natrushka Wed, Sep-11-02 11:16

I kept meaning to and finally just did:

The carb count (for the base only) is listed in the original thread about this recipe :)


Akiwican Wed, Sep-11-02 11:22

Thanks Nat
I was just thinking :idea: that I should put the base in as a separate item in Fitday, then I will only have to add the toppings. I always put different stuff on each time.

penelope Wed, Sep-11-02 18:10

I love it.

I forgot to put the cream in it and I poured the mixture into an 11”by 17”pan and it was delicious also I overcook the crust.

Perfect taste :D

drsullivan Mon, Sep-16-02 17:13

My wife made this tonight after I found the recipe.....oh my gosh...I am ready for football season...this is fantastic

Thanks :daze:

Kristine Sun, Sep-22-02 17:01

I finally got around to trying this: it's fantastic!! I put the pepperoni along the bottom, as someone suggested. I put a healthy dose of oregano into the 'crust' and the smell in the kitchen was heavenly!! My next experiment: foccachia quiche made the same way. I guess I should call it Foc-quiche-ia. Or Faux-coccia. ;)

Thanks again for the recipe, Donald! Two thumbs up! :thup: :thup:

Yesican Fri, Oct-04-02 06:21

I can't wait to try this tonight!
Friday night has been pizza night in our family forever.

Now, I will make mine while the rest of my family has theirs.

Thank You!

Yesican Sat, Oct-05-02 07:01

I just had to reply with a big "THANK YOU!"

I was dreading pizza night until I found this recipe & I enjoyed mine more than the rest of the family enjoyed theirs!

Terrific & thank you so much for posting it!

Mosaic4 Wed, Oct-16-02 21:48

So good...I thought I was cheating!!!!

Thank you!


Azure Mon, Oct-21-02 18:19

This recipe is SO versatile. I make it all the time. And no matter what I put on it, I like it best COLD. But it's so hard to let it cool so I can put it in a container and chill it in the fridge.

DWRolfe Tue, Oct-22-02 14:29

Letting it cool...
I also enjoy this dish cold...

...but I always liked cold pizza!

My trouble is keeping my hands off of it long enough to let it cool. I make a batch intended for freezing, but I always end up snatching a bite here and there and the next thing you know I've eaten an entire piece.

It does smell wonderful when cooking, and it's a great way to enjoy the taste of pizza without the crust.

Glad y'all enjoy it as much as I do.

Donald :spin:

My hero
I just had to send a big cyber hug to the man responsible for returning pizza to my (and my 2 year old's ) dinner routine! This recipe is heaven and my favorite breakfast. I never thought about COLD - do you mean icebox cold or room temp cold?

DWRolfe: I've lurked in your journal :o and thanks for every bit of inspiration in there too!

Any other award winning recipes??

Azure Tue, Oct-22-02 16:03

I like it best right out of the fridge. :)

Moni-Luv Wed, Oct-23-02 14:17

omg That is sooooo good.......I used the pepperoni like azure listed..........FANTASTIC!!!!!
