Field editor Debbie White of Williamson, West Virginia puts ever-popular ingredients into a pastry crust for her appealing "pizza pie". She writes, "There's seldom a slice left when I serve it to family or company."

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 12 slices pepperoni, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives

Directions

  1. Bake unpricked pastry shell at 375° for 11 minutes. Sprinkle with 2/3 cup Swiss cheese. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, salt, oregano, cayenne and pepper; pour over cheese.
  2. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Stir in the tomatoes, thyme, sugar and basil. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until liquid has evaporated.
  4. Sprinkle remaining Swiss cheese over quiche. Top with the tomato mixture. Sprinkle with the pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and olives. Bake 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
