This Breakfast Pizza Quiche has all the flavors you love about pizza, but made to be eaten at breakfast…or anytime of day. This is a true example how delicious Paleo and Whole30 can be!
Last week I got an awesome new cookbook, One Pot Paleo, with some amazing Paleo meals. I’m always looking for new ideas and dishes and that is exactly what this book is full of. I’ve read many Paleo cookbooks and this one stands out with totally unique dishes AND they are all made in one pot which equals less clean up! I love that every recipe has a picture. I guess the internet has spoiled me in that way and now it’s hard for me to make a recipe without an image of an end result in my mind.
Picking the Breakfast Pizza Quiche was a simple choice and here are a few other recipes I’m looking forward to trying:
- Meatball Noodle Soup (I’m making this tonight)
- Moorish Skewers
- Braised Asian Chicken
- Brussels Sprouts Favorite
- Chicken Pesto Zucchini
- Cauliflower Pork Fried Rice
- Hawaiian Meatballs
- Skirt Steak Fajitas
I would say pizza is one of the most missed foods on Paleo. I know that’s true for my husband and I! This is the most pizza-like dish we’ve had and it is seriously delicious! I love how it is easily customizable. If you love olives and bacon on your pizza- add them!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need. Pizza sauce (check labels to make sure there is no added sugar. This is a good brand.), eggs, mushrooms, coconut milk, pepperoni, green onion, roasted red peppers, and the seasonings.
Crack the eggs into a large bowl with the coconut milk. Mix well and add the seasonings. Add in the mushrooms, roasted red peppers, green onion, and pepperoni (I only added a little, saving most for the top).
Pour the mixture into the pan. I like to line mine with parchment paper. I have made so many pans of baked eggs and no matter how well I grease it, it always sticks. This is the only way I cook them now. It makes clean up so easy as well. Swirl the pizza sauce on top (I didn’t get a picture of that). Top the eggs with the cut pepperoni and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, cut and enjoy!
I did a couple things differently than the recipe says, but nothing major. I used a couple extra eggs and made it in a larger dish. I left the pepperoni for the top because I think crispy pepperoni is the best! It took 10 minutes longer for mine to bake- I’m sure that’s because of the extra eggs.
I will definitely be making this again! It is so easy and such a nice change from plain eggs. The flavors work perfectly together and my husband has declared these his favorite eggs ever!
The author of this book, Jenny from Paleo Foodie Kitchen, has an awesome blog with so many great recipes! You should definitely check it out!
