To reheat
Place quiche in the oven for 5 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven to toast, or place in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. 
Using refrigerated pie dough 
Use a 9-12" pie plate. You will only need one sheet of pie crust dough. 
Simply unwrap and firmly place it in the pie dish. Crimp the edges. 
You do not need to prebake the crust if you opt to use refrigerated dough. However, a pie shield for the first 20 minutes of cooking will prevent the crust from over-browning. Remove it after 20 minutes and cook uncovered for and extra 20 minutes. To test if your quiche is done, no more "liquids" should be bubbling from the center of the quiche. Egg mixture will be firm and not jiggly.
