I admit it I love pizza I really love anything that has to do with carbohydrates! I also know that I don’t feel very well when I eat too many carbs made with white flour so I’m always looking for fun alternatives for my favorite comfort foods. I posted earlier I recipe with cauliflower pizza crust. It was super tasty but not to durable. Tonight I tried quinoa pizza crust. It was totally easy to make and could withstand all the junk I wanted to place on the pizza. Bon appétit!
3/4 cup quinoa
1/2 tsp salt
1tsp baking powder
1/4 cup salt
Soak three force cup quinoa in 2 cups of water for at least 8 to 10 hours. Drain the water and rinse the quinoa thoroughly. Place the quinoa in a food processor with all other ingredients and blend about three minutes.
Put the dough onto parchment paper and bake in the oven at 425° for 15 min. Flipped over onto baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray remove parchment paper and return to the oven for 10 minutes.
Put all of your yummy toppings on and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until bubbly and looking yummy!
This week I topped it with Trader Joe’s blend of Parmesan, asiago, fontina, provolone, and mozzarella cheeses as well as fresh mushrooms, black olives, and Trader Joe’s gourmet pepperoni. Don’t judge, it’s been one of those weeks!
