Add the tomatoes to a bowl and toss with the olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Spread onto a parchment or aluminum foil-lined baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes, until the tomatoes are puffy and lightly browned.
When the tomatoes are done, place them in a strainer and gently press down on them to release any excess juice. Set aside to cool.
Add the pesto to the bottom of the pie crust and spread out evenly.
Top with the goat cheese, tomatoes, crumbled bacon, parmesan cheese, and rosemary, and spread out evenly.
Add the eggs and cream to a bowl and whisk until well combined. Add a pinch of salt and nutmeg. Mix again and carefully pour over the quiche.
Bake the quiche until it is set and firm to the touch, about 45-55 minutes.
Remove the quiche from the oven and let it sit for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
*This quiche can be made up to 24 hours ahead and reheated before serving.
