Lo-Carb Deep-Dish Pizza Quiche (Diabetes-friendly)

(4 servings)

  • 4 oz. cream cheese-at room temperature
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream (or use milk)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • 2 cups shredded full-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms-sauted
  • 2 Italian sausages (casing removed; crumbled & cooked)
Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

In a food processor, blend together the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add the cream, Parmesan, chives, garlic, and oregano. Blend until smooth.

Scatter the Asiago and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. (This will make your crust.) Pour the egg mixture over the cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.

Spread with the tomato sauce. Scatter the mushrooms and sausage over the top. Cover with the remaining 1 cup mozzarella.

Turn on the broiler and broil about 6 inches from the heat until brown and bubbly. Let sit for 5 minutes or so before cutting.
