Yes. Pizza Quiche.
Let’s get the most important thing out of the way. This tastes amazing. And starting your day with pizza lends itself very nicely to having a good day. I did a study. Pizza = happy.
The other important thing about this pizza quiche? It’s healthy. It’s gluten-free, high-protein, low-carb, and could be paleo if you omit the cheese. (But whyyyyyy?) Eggs and vegetables (and sausage if you like) are all combined and baked until golden brown. The literal icing on the cake is some marinara and a sprinkle of mozzarella which melts into a gooey topping. The cauliflower isn’t very detectable, but gives the quiche more body and bite since it’s missing a crust.
