For this recipe I used a hearty crust made out of oats and oat flour to make it a filling lunch. But if you’re looking to make a lighter breakfast option you could definitely make it crust-less. Just like pizza you can use whatever toppings you please to finish this quiche, but I love the combination of caramelized onions, sausage, and pepperoni in this recipe. The key to making this quiche truly feel like a pizza is to broil the cheese on the top once the egg are cooked, creates ooey gooey pizza perfection!

      Let me know how you like it! I went through a phase where I was making it once a week and ate it for a month straight. Good thing it’s healthier than pizza!
