During January all the low-carb eaters who overindulged during the holidays go back to low-carb eating with a vengeance! I can relate to that myself so I always try to start out the year with some low-carb recipes that will help people to not feel deprived when they’re getting back on track. That’s why so many popular recipes with pizza flavors like Low-Carb Deconstructed Pizza Casserole and Low-Carb Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Bake made their first appearance on the blog during January! And this year I’m excited to share this new recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Keto Crustless Quiche! This crustless quiche was such a wow for us when we tested the recipe, and I loved it for leftovers when I warmed some up for breakfast the next day as well.

And it’s a fun story about how I got the recipe! During December I shared a collection of The Best Low-Carb and Keto Crustless Quiche Recipes. When that post went out to the e-mail subscibers, a faithful reader name Cherie sent me her family’s favorite quiche recipe. This is the same Cherie who sent her husband’s recipe that I adapted a bit and posted as Chester’s Low-Carb Southwestern Egg Skillet on the blog, and that recipe has certainly been a hit. Cherie’s Pepperoni Pizza Quiche had a crust, which of course we eliminated, and we made a few other little changes to come up with this Pepperoni Pizza Keto Crustless Quiche that I know you are going to love! So once again Thank You to Cherie for sharing another great recipe idea with the Kalyn’s Kitchen readers!

We used mushrooms and sliced black olives and a generous amount of Italian Herb Blend to combine with the pepperoni and cheese and make this crustless quiche have those pizza flavors so many people love. Preheat the oven to 400F/200C and spray a glass or ceramic pie pan with non-stick spray. Heat a little olive oil in a non-stick pan and cook the mushrooms until they have released their liquid and are slightly browned. Drain a small can of sliced black olives. Combine the two kinds of cheese in a bowl and mix in 1 tsp. Italian Herb Blend.

Put the cheese/dried herb mixture into the pie plate. Then beat 4 eggs with the heavy cream and a little garlic powder and add it to the cheese. Stir with a fork until the cheese and eggs/cream mixture is completely combined. Make a layer of the browned mushrooms over the top.

Add the sliced olives among the mushrooms, and then cover the top with an overlapping layer of pepperoni. (It will shrink quite a bit as it cooks, as you can see, so don’t worry about using too much pepperoni.) Sprinkle the rest of the Italian Herb Blend over the pepperoni. Bake the Pepperoni Pizza Keto Crustless Quiche 30-35 minutes, or until the quiche is completely firm and the pepperoni is starting to slightly brown.

Serve hot. The inspiring recipe suggested the idea of spooning some pizza sauce over each wedge of quiche, but we didn’t try that.

Pepperoni Pizza Keto Crustless Quiche

Pepperoni Pizza Keto Crustless Quiche will make a tasty breakfast option when you’re craving pizza but don’t want the carbs!

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tsp. olive oil (for browning mushrooms)
  • 1 can (2.25 oz.) sliced black olives, drained well (Olives are option but they’re good if you like olives on pizza.)
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Italian Blend cheese (sometimes called Pizza cheese)
  • 1 tsp. + 1/2 tsp. Italian Herb blend
  • 4 eggs, beaten well
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (use half and half or milk if you prefer)
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 oz. sliced pepperoni

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Spray a 9 – 10 inch glass pie dish with non-stock spray.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan. (I used my favorite 12″ Green Pan Ceramic Non-Stick Frying Pan.) Add the sliced mushrooms and cook over medium-high heat until mushrooms release the liquid, the liquid evaporates, and mushrooms are cooked and lightly brown.
  3. While mushrooms cook, dump olives into a colander placed in the sink and let them them drain well.
  4. Combine the Mozzarella and Italian Blend Cheese in a bowl and sprinkle over the 1 tsp. Italian Herb Blend. Stir the cheese with a fork so the dried herbs are evenly distributed in the cheese. Place the cheese in the pie dish.
  5. Beat the eggs with a fork, then mix in the heavy cream, half and half, or milk. Mix the egg/cream mixture into the cheese in the pie dish, stirring well with a fork until all the cheese is completely coated with the egg mixture.
  6. Make a layer of browned mushrooms on top of the cheese/egg mixture. Top that with the sliced olives if using.
  7. Arrange the pepperoni slices in an overlapping layer over the top of the mushrooms and olives. Sprinkle with the other 1/2 teaspoon of Italian Herb Blend.
  8. Bake the quiche 30-35 minutes, or until the eggs are completely set and the pepperoni is starting to brown.
  9. Let quiche cool 3-5 minutes (it will sink down slightly as it cools. Serve hot.
  10. This will keep for several days in the refrigerator and reheats well in the microwave or in a pan on the stove.

Notes:

This recipe adapted from a Pepperoni Pizza Quiche recipe sent to me by Cherie, who also shared the recipe for Chester’s Low-Carb Southwestern Egg Skillet!

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Pepperoni Pizza Keto Crustless Quiche is a good breakfast recipe for low-carb or Keto diets. This would be too high in fat for the South Beach Diet, but if you used low-carb milk, turkey pepperoni, and low-fat cheese you could make a South Beach Diet friendly version that I bet would still be really good.

  1. How many net carbs?

    • I wish there was an easy way for me to get nutritional information on all the recipes. This post talks about my efforts after I switched my blog from Blogger to WordPress and had to edit 2,000+ recipes. I have been working on that for nearly two years now, while trying to keep up with the blog. I am planning to add nutritional information, but not until the editing project is done. It will be later in the fall though, yaay!

      If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information. That’s all I am able to do at this time, although we are getting quite close to being ready to start adding nutritional information!

  2. I made this last night for dinner, it was fabulous! I overcooked it a little, but will definitely make it again. Thank you!

  3. We are new to low carb cooking.  In the past week I have tried three of your keto recipes and they are amazing!  The pepperoni pizza crustless quiche was perfect for a snowy night supper.  

  4. What are the carbs and calories in this pizza?

    • I am currently not able to add nutritional information to the site. More than a year ago I switched my site to WordPress, which created the need to edit by hand to add more than 2,000 recipes to the preferred format for google. I have been working on that (with three assistants) for more than a year, so there is no possibility of me being able to calculate nutritional information until that project is completed. And I know that once I start doing nutrition info on one recipe people will expect to see it on every recipe, which is why I have decided to keep these two projects completely separate. If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information. That’s all I am able to do at this time.

  5. Carb Manager, My Fitness Pal, etc. are apps that you can easily use to calculate the nutritional information based on the specific ingredients you use in a particular recipe. You are able to simply scan the barcode on the packaging or look up the nutritional information for thousands of items. I use it every time I make a new recipe and it always works great:) Hope that helps

  6. Your recipes look yummy! Sadly, they are unusable to me with no nutritional information. Calories, Fat, Protein, Carbs, Fiber, and Sugar are vital.

    • I have explained many times why I am currently not able to add nutritional information to the site. More than a year ago I switched my site to WordPress, which created the need to edit by hand to add more than 2,000 recipes to the preferred format for google. I have been working on that (with three assistants) for more than a year, so there is no possibility of me being able to calculate nutritional information until that project is completed. And I know that once I start doing nutrition info on one recipe people will expect to see it on every recipe, which is why I have decided to keep these two projects completely separate.

      However, thousands and thousands of people use this site every day, so apparently some people are able to calculate the info themselves or don’t need it. I’ve already bought ingredients, tested the recipe, photographed the recipe, and written the post, and now I am taking my time to answer your comment. So I am not going to feel guilty that you might have to spend 2-3 minutes calculating the nutrition.
