  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until onion is very tender and dark brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.

  • Spread mozzarella cheese and tomatoes over the bottom of pie crust. Whisk eggs, lemon juice, basil, salt, black pepper, and caramelized onion in a large bowl; pour mixture over cheese and tomatoes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set and crust is flaky, 30 to 40 minutes.
