Tried this dish last week, everyone in the family loved it. I have tried many dishes from here and my wife, who does LC also, usually has some recommendations, but this one was good as it was. Even my kids, 4 and 5, could not get enough of it!

Thanks for a great recipe!

CAINNE Fri, Jun-27-03 08:59

Oh I forgot.
I made my own sauce from tomato paste, water and spices. turned out really well. A fine option if you can not find a LC sauce.

Was great frozen and reheated too!

pizza quiche using tomato sauce okay??

I saw some recipies for deep dish pizza quiche. sounds great. I don't have any spaghetti sauce. Do you think tomato sauce will work? I also saw a recipie but can't find it anymore that was kinda like it. It said to use ground sausage as the bottom, then put hamburger on top, sprinkle with cheese, spaghetti sauce and any other toppings. Does this sound right??

I thought this recipe was ok,
not bad, not great, kind of mediocre.

My fav. low carb pizza recipe is 'Zucchini Pizza" from Dana Carpender's "500 Low Carb Recipe" cook book, it's really phenomenal and I'd be happy to share the recipe.

:) Marchbabe please do share your recipe with us :wave:

marchbaby Tue, Jul-01-03 08:20

Sure Fern
I posted it as a new thread. enjoy!

Okay, Okay
I finally tried this. And YES, you guys were right... it's awesome.

Brought some leftovers for lunch today... can't wait.

Hubby liked it better cold (think I do too).

I really like the texture and consistency of the "crust", can't wait to try variations... thinking about a ham and swiss idea. :idea:

Thanks for the recipe! It was good. My husband who isn't low-carbing (doesn't need to) enjoyed it very much.

Tiffanylip Sat, Jul-05-03 18:38

Just wanted to say that I made the receipe last night for some friends and it was a huge hit! The pizza crust idea was great!

Thanks so much for the receipe!

carbon8tr Tue, Jul-08-03 11:55

Well that certainly looks GREAT!!! I can't wait to try this recipe over the weekend!
Peggy :yay:

Brandon - you're a hoot!

I make this recipe all the time - tastes good cold if you haven't already noticed that.

I have also used taco meat (hamburger and that orange dust you can buy 3 for $1.00) and Mexican blend cheese for a taco pizza kind of thing.

would this be okay for induction? i'm new to low carbing and i'm a terrible cook, so i just want to make sure before attempting it. also, any idea what the carb count is?


amy001 Fri, Jul-11-03 23:54

i have a question: what is the base like?---taste wise. i haven't made very many LC recipes. just thinking about it, i can't really imagine what eggs, cream cheese, cream, cheese and spices taste like baked.

and congratulations. it looks pretty good, especially since you claim to not cook.

:roll: amy

The pizza actually tastes like pizza!
I just made this for the first time the other day and I was very surprised that it tasted as good as it did! I may try making the crust next time with one less egg--its not too eggish but I just want to see if it will get a little more "bread" like (I didn't want to mess with the recipe the first time making it!)

skejf Sun, Jul-13-03 23:10

My wife and I made this recipe today and it was great! I know this will become a regular dish in my home for now on! :yum:

freckles Sun, Aug-03-03 20:25

This is a FABULOUS recipe!!! I can not believe it tastes so much like the real thing!!! And here I thought that I'd never get to legally eat pizza again. :lol: This was sinfully delicious....along with my Diet Rite and a good movie it felt like old times. Thank you!!!

collierami Mon, Aug-04-03 15:00

Can't wait to try it tomorrow!!!!
YUMMY, and yOU look GREAT

KMaryP Tue, Aug-05-03 18:07

I just tried the recipe as Donald posted it, with a few different toppings, and all I can say is...thank goodness I wasn't starving when I sat down to eat or the whole thing would've disappeared!

One question...I'm not a cold pizza eater. What is the best way to reheat leftovers? Does it microwave okay or does it get soggy? I can't wait to take it to work tomorrow and share it with my lc co-workers!

joanne42 Wed, Aug-06-03 12:49

You can probably reheat it in a toaster oven.. I've never tried in the microwave...

locarbs4me Sat, Aug-09-03 08:45

I made this last night and what a hit! Great recipe!!

nicksmom Mon, Aug-11-03 09:37

Oh gosh, finally back home after a long vacation. Time to make this again! Yum yum! :wiggle:

Polkadots Tue, Aug-12-03 18:27

HOLY MAN FRAN! Made this last night and almost wept it was good!

Steph44 Wed, Aug-13-03 09:07

hahahahaha I know what you mean!!

Alopex Thu, Aug-21-03 10:32

Thumbs WAY up!
I just have to agree with all the people who thought this was the best thing ever! :)

I made it kind of wrong...used a large pie plate instead, to make it more pizza-y. So I just cooked it for a little longer on slightly lower heat, and it worked out perfectly. Bacon and mushroom toppings..mmmmmmm. :doah: Hubby and I are big fans, now! :)

One more thing--our microwave died, and I don't have any desire to replace it, so I've figured out how to make the toaster oven do roughly the same things I used the microwave to do. To reheat a 1/4 of my pizza from refrigerated, I put it in the toaster oven on low (about 200-250) for about 10 minutes. Turned out pretty well, actually, though 12 minutes would have gotten it hotter. :yum:

Thanks so much for this recipe!

mind-full Sat, Aug-23-03 20:29

I know I'm not the first to say it, nor will I be the last if this thread is any indication, but this recipe is terrific.

My husband has craved pizza since starting induction and all the "fake crust" recipes turned him cold and sent the finished product to the trash can. Blech!

Upon hearing the name of this recipe Husband appeared dubious. THe doubt was practically written on his face. Real men don't eat quiche ... right?

Two bites into it he asked, "How much more of this can I have?"


Chantel30 Sun, Aug-24-03 17:13

Stupid Question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been planning on making this Quiche Pizza but how much does this make you see I would like to know if I need to purchase extra things so I can share with my itty bitty soon to be DH.

tofi Sun, Aug-24-03 17:24

Thnk about the ingredients.

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!)

Beat together cream cheese and eggs till smooth.
Add cream, parmesean cheese and spices
Spray 13x9 glass baking dish with oil
Put 2 cups of shredded cheese in dish and pour egg mixt. over Bake at 375 for 30 minutes
Spread with sauce and then add your toppings Cover with mozzarella cheese Bake till browning and bubbly Let stand for 5 minutes or so.

4 eggs, more than 3 cups of cheese, and bake in a 9 x 13 inch dish. That should be more than enough for two people. And maybe leftovers for lunch for the microwave.

Chantel30 Sun, Aug-24-03 17:27

thanks I am slow sometimes

mind-full Sun, Aug-24-03 19:19

Whether this helps a little more or not, I'm posting anyway! :)

I made the pizza quiche for the first time last night. My DH and I each had 1/4 of the 9 X 13 pan, and then had the rest today for lunch. It doesn't look like a lot (considering that when we used to eat "real pizza" DH would wolf 4 or 5 slices without blinking) but it's filling and really good.

Good luck!

Chantel30 Mon, Aug-25-03 11:52

Thanks I still have gotten around to making it but this weekend is my reward with this dish. It sounds so GOOD!
