Everyone loves pie. Everyone loves pizza. I don’t think everyone is quite sold on quiche yet, but it turns out if you call something a pie it turns from “Ewwww!” to “Yum!”
At least among the under-4 set.
This recipe uses more liquid than I typically use for quiche, but I might have to switch over. This quiche is so light and fluffy, and when it comes out of the oven it is gorgeously puffed up. Kale isn’t typically a pizza topping, but I never pass up an opportunity to throw it into something I can get my kid to eat.
The tomatoes and pepperoni do sink to the bottom and the kale floats on top for the most part. This is not to the quiche’s detriment. After all, you’re not going to eat it in layers, are you? That would be weird.
