Quinoa Pizza Crust
I love finding new pizza crusts to experiment with! I used a 9 x 13 high side baking sheet but you could also use a 9 in cake pan as well. As long as it has sides & isn’t bigger than 9 inches, it should be ok! This is a thin crust with crunchy edges. I used both parchment paper and oil underneath to ensure it didn’t stick and it worked perfectly! I adapted this recipe from Lauren at Oatmeal With a Fork and changed it up just a bit. It is definitely a keeper for us!
I love quinoa so much because it is a complete protein. That means that it contains all 9 of the essential amino acids that are crucial to human function and health. Quinoa is a favorite of people on a plant based diet for this reason. Not only is quinoa excellent for vegans, but it is also a wonderful option for those that follow a gluten free diet, since it is completely gluten free. It is also a food that is on the low end of the glycemic index. This makes it a great choice for people with blood sugar issues, and if you’re watching you’re weight, it’s a great addition to a balanced diet. Makes me love this crust even more!

Hi Karina! You do not have to soak the quinoa for this recipe! Sorry for the delay I must have bypassed your comment on accident!

Question: Did the original recipe require the quinoa to be soaked for about 8 hours? And did it also call for baking powder? Of course, my eyes aren’t the best all the time. I could be overlooking these items. Thank you for your time.

Hey Laura! Originally I did soak the quinoa when I first made this recipe, but I also found that it works perfectly fine if you don't. So that absolutely is an option if you want to do that. And no I did not add any baking powder. Hope that helps!

HAPPY RECIPE SEARCHING!
Here you will find recipes either created by me or from ones I have found and changed up to my liking. I try to use ingredients that are usually 95% organic (lessen that toxic load!), very little unrefined sugars used and the majority of these are GLUTEN FREE. We eat legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, grass fed organic meats, pasture raised eggs, very small amounts of organic dairy, and lots of fruits and veggies! You can always change up the recipes to fit your lifestyle or taste buds! Thanks for supporting me and my art through food!
