I made this for supper one evening and it was so good and easy and I will make it again and I will also make it for my guests. I like the idea about putting pizza sauce on the botom of the crust and will give that a try the next time I make it

This is great

I added pizza sauce to the pepperoni on the bottom and the next time I made it added green peppers and onions. Add a salad and dinner is ready.

wonderful idea

I am always looking for something different, and this is different and great. My husband commented that he had never had pepperoni with eggs, but he liked it a lot! I did use Italian seasoning instead of just basil. I also added cracked pepper and doubled the pepperoni (hubby likes lots of meat). Next time I think I will make my own pie crust. I always think the frozen ones taste a bit sweet when used in savory dishes.

Easy and versatile

I thought this was very easy to make. I added onions, green pepper and tomato to the topping. Was delicious. Almost too cheesy though for me. I'll adjust next time.

I really enjoyed this quiche! It was quick and easy to prepare. Next time I'll add at least another ounce of pepperoni.

My friends and family love this quiche. I make my own pie shells. (I like to make two at a time and have one made for another day.) Absolutely quick and easy: tastes great the next day, even cold!

Family favorite!

I tried this recipe with a twist (ripe olives & homemade bacon bits, 2 dish) for a graduation party with family. I didn't get to taste, not a crumb left. Gotta try it again, for myself to enjoy at home with hubby. I never bake anything without a twist...did it as Bacon Pizza Quiche (add any veggie, chesses: chedder, monterary jack & colby...didn't get a slice of that too.
