This is a good, healthy quinoa pizza crust recipe from Alyssa Rimmer. It is easy to make and tastes great. I have adjusted the original recipe slightly.
Quinoa provides both fiber and protein, which makes this pizza crust low glycemic and healthy. The way to keep this a truly healthy pizza is by adding whole foods toppings instead of highly refined toppings.
Prep time: 6 to 8 hours plus 15 minutes – to soak quinoa
Cooking time: 20 to 25 minutes
Makes: one 9 inch round pizza crust or one large rectangular pizza crust
¾ cup white quinoa, covered by 1 inch of water – soaked 6 to 8 hours (or overnight)
1/3 cup water
¼ cup parmesan cheese
½ tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp olive oil
- Place the quinoa in a glass bowl and cover with 1 inch of water. Let it soak for 6 to 8 hours (or overnight).
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare the baking pan by lining a round pizza pan, a round pizza stone, or a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Rinse the soaked quinoa thoroughly and place in a blender. Add all the other ingredients and process on high until smooth. It should be like a creamy pancake batter. (Add more water if necessary to obtain the ‘pancake batter’ consistency)
- Pour the batter onto your prepared baking pan, smoothing it out with a spatula to make it evenly distributed.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the pizza crust over Note: if you are using a pizza stone – it could take slightly longer to bake as it takes time for the stone to become hot.
- Return to the oven and bake for another 10 to 12 minutes, until it is cooked through. Your pizza crust is done!
- Add toppings of your choice, bake for 10 to 15 minutes and enjoy
