Your whole family will love this pizza-flavored quiche. For a nice flavor variation, try cooked crumbled Italian sausage in place of the pepperoni.
1 (9-inch) deep-dish frozen pie crust, thawed
1 1/2 cups (6-ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese - divided use
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
1/3 cup (1-ounce) pepperoni slices
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 large eggs
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

- Layer pie crust with 3/4 cup of cheese, then spaghetti sauce, pepperoni, green pepper, onion and remaining 3/4 cup of cheese.
- In a medium-sized bowl, combine eggs, cream, salt and pepper; mix thoroughly and pour over filling.
