Quinoa Pizza Crust
This recipe is awesome for a delicious and very healthy pizza crust! It does take a little bit of time to make, but well worth it! I didn't create the recipe but found it on Amanda Finks webiste http://www.thewholesomedish.com/quinoa-crust-pizza-cheesy-garlic-bread/
Here's what you do!
-Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
- Put 2 tsp of olive in a hot pan. Rinse off 1/2 cup quinoa and put in the oil. Stir around for 5-6 minutes just lightly browning the outside. Then add 1 cup water (1 part quinoa to 2 parts water)
-After Quinoa is cooked, let it cook a little more to help get all the water soaked up or evaporated.
-Cool for 10 minutes.
-As the Quinoa is cooling, mix together:
-1 tsp garlic
-1/2 tsp basil
-1/2 tsp oregano
-1/2 tsp baking powder
- Mix above mixture with cooled quinoa. Add 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. Mix well
-Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spread the mixture across the paper and even it out until it's about 1/4" thick.
-Place in oven for 15-20 minutes (when it looks cooked)
-Take out and add favorite sauce and toppings. Pop back into the oven for 5-10 minutes until the toppings are done the way you like.
