Preheat oven to 375°F with rack in the middle. Fit the pre-made dough into a 9-inch pie plate with no overhang on the edges. Prick bottom thoroughly with a fork. Line with foil and add pie weights or beans. Bake until the edge is pale (golden) brown. Remove weights/beans and bake until golden brown all over (15 to 20 minutes more). Don't turn the oven off.
While the pastry bakes, cook the broccoli florets in a pot of boiling salted water for 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain thoroughly again.
Dice and mash garlic gloves into a paste with a pinch of salt added.
Whisk together garlic paste, eggs, cream, nutmeg, cayenne, and 1 cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese until smooth. Make sure there are no clumps of cheese. Pour filling into pie shell and arrange broccoli evenly in the pie, then sprinkle with remaining cheeses.
Bake until it is just set - 40 to 45 minutes (start checking it at 30). The center will be a little 'shaky' but will set as it cools.
Cool at least 20 minutes.
This can be baked ahead and chilled. To reheat - place uncovered in a 325 degree F oven for about 20 minutes.
