Easy Quinoa Pizza Crust
This pizza crust is gluten free with a grain free option.

  • Ingredients:


    1½ cups organic quinoa (uncooked)
    1 egg
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 tbsp minced garlic (or more)
    ⅛ to ¼ cup apple cider vinegar (for grain free, sub water or your favorite broth)
    Basil (fresh chopped or dried)
    Oregano (fresh chopped or dried)


  • Instructions:


    Soak quinoa overnight in a large mixing bowl filled with water.

    Rinse quinoa well and drain.

    Preheat oven to 450.

    In your blender blend quinoa, egg, oil, and garlic. Blend in vinegar (I used 3 splashes from my bottle - it was between ⅛ and ¼ cups). Blend in spices to taste ( I used fresh herbs about 1 and ½ tbsp basil and 1 tsp oregano)

    Grease skillet, pie pan, or cake pan. For mini pizzas grease 3 inch round pans. I used small pyrex bowls for the ones in the photo. Pour in batter. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip. Bake for 10 more minutes.

    Top and enjoy.
