Italian Style Quiche
There's just something about an All- in-One kind of meal. You know those meals that include your protein and veggies and all in a nice little package called a pie?
This meal is everything you love about savory pies and more. A cheesy quiche with crumbles of perfectly spiced sausage, the smokey flavor of roasted red peppers and oozing mozzarella in every crack and crevice.

Coconut Flour Pie Crust
The best savory pies start with the best savory pie crust. If your pie crust is soggy or just not that great, the filling won't really matter.
A flaky crust is needed in this delicious Italian inspired pie. Mine just happens to be grain free, low carb and nut free. You won't find many low carb crusts without almond flour but in our case, with a tree nut allergic child, that's how I work.
It will be hard once this beauty is out of the oven, but you really must let it cool for a bit before slicing. It holds better when it's had a chance to cool a while. About 15 minutes is all you will need to wait then serve yourself a nice hearty piece.
Sprinkle on little chopped fresh parsley for some color and freshness and dig in!
A hearty quiche to enjoy for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner that will satisfy everyone in the family!
