I couldn't decide between making a quiche or a pizza, so I made a quiche-za! My new grocery store is more like a local farmer's market in that everything is extra fresh, juicy, tasty, heavenly.. and for the same price (or less) than tasteless traditional supermarket produce. Their fresh basil is of a quality I'd never experienced before.
Serves 2 as a meal or 4 as an appetizer
1 pie crust, uncooked
1 ball fresh mozzarella, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 eggs
squirt of tomato sauce
drizzle basalmic vinegar
2 tbsp heavy cream
3-4 large fresh basil leaves, chopped
salt/fresh pepper
grated parmesan
1. Unroll your pie crust and attack it with a fork. Put it in your mold and pop it in the oven at 400°F for 5-10 minutes.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, and tomato sauce.
3. Once your pie crust is lightly colored, lay the tomatoes at the bottom, followed by the bell pepper and mozzarella slices.
4. Drizzle a bit of basalmic vinegar and sprinkle some salt and pepper over everything. Pour in the egg mixture and sprinkle with basil and parmesan.
5. Cook for approx 30 minutes in the oven. (I didn't really time it.. I just kept checking to see if it was no longer liquid.

Serve with a salad and make it a light lunch or appetizer.. or be a pig like we are and eat half of it for dinner.
