I’m celebrating a school lunch win today.
It is also be a Mum lunch win, an easy dinner win, and a breakfast win!
Oh how I love it when one recipe works for all kinds of situations. Yay for mini pizza quiches!
These mini, crust-less, pizza quiches went in school lunch boxes this morning, and I’m eating a couple with some delicious pizza dipping sauce for my lunch too.
There are a few leftovers in the fridge and I know my big boy will eat those for breakfast tomorrow, and I also popped some in the freezer to reheat as a quick and easy dinner option for nights we have loads of after school activities.
I made these mini quiches in a muffin tin so they would be easy to put in lunch boxes and freeze and defrost in individual serves, but you could make this as one large quiche in a pie dish or lasagna dish.
You can add pizza toppings you like into your quiche mixture – we went with the basics, salami, olives and capsicum. Don’t forget to add lots of herbs, fresh or dried – a good combination is sage, thyme and oregano.
- For the Quiche
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup of self raising flour
- 1 cup of grated cheese
- 30 ml oil
- Pizza toppings diced – salami, olives, capsicum, mushrooms etc
- Mixed herbs to taste (fresh or dried)
- For the Dipping Sauce
- 1 cup tomato passata or puree
- 1 tabsp mixed herbs (fresh or dried)
- 1 tsp crushed garlic
- Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Grease a muffin tin very well (or use a pie dish or lasagna dish).
- Lightly beat the eggs then add flour, cheese and oil, mix well.
- Cut your choice of pizza topping ingedients into small squares and stir through the mixture.
- Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin, feeling each one almost to the top.
- Bake in the oven for 15-25 minutes or until cooked in the middle and golden brown on top.
- To make the dipping sauce, simply mix all ingredients in a small bowl and serve.

These mini pizza quiches were quick and easy to make and they taste great too. That’s one more thing to add to my menu plan!
