TORTILLA QUICHE PIZZA

I love making quiche and who doesn't like eating it? But honestly, who has the time or the patience to make the crust on any given day? I certainly don't so I came up with what I think is quite clever....a tortilla quiche pizza. I kid you not! It has the best of both worlds - eggy quiche and pizza. You can add whatever veggies you like into the egg mixture and use whatever kind of tortilla you like for the "crust" portion of this recipe. You can eat this warm or eat it cold and it really doesn't change the flavour all the much. Give this different kind of quiche a try! It's a real looker!

Makes 4 portions

Baking time: 23-25 minutes

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 large tortillas, cut to fit into pie shell
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped finely
  • half a red bell pepper, diced
  • handful of chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup zucchini, diced
  • 1 small can of pizza sauce
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (or more if needed)
  • small handful of chopped fresh basil

1. Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a pie shell with parchment paper. This is an important step to ensure that the tortillas don't stick to the bottom of the pie shell while baking. Fit the tortilla pieces all around the pie shell, making sure that there is enough tortilla pieces to double layer the shell.

2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together until the egg is fluffy. Then add in the onion, diced bell pepper, parsley, and the diced zucchini into the egg mixture. Pour the egg-veggie mixture into the prepared pie shell and bake it in the oven for 15 minutes or until the egg is about to set.

3. Then take it out of the oven, spoon over the pizza sauce, sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese and place it back into the oven for another 8-10 minutes or until the egg has set, and the cheese is nicely melted. Take it immediately out of the oven and sprinkle the fresh basil. Cool for 5 minutes, slice into portions and serve with a nice side salad.
