Quinoa Crusted Spinach Pizza


To make the crust I used a 12 oz box of Quinoa 10 min. rice cooled, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1 tsp. of baking powder 2/3 cups of water, 3 tsp. of Flax seeds and 1 tsp. of kosher salt. You basically blend it all together in a food processor. 

Once done, it will be gummy and you will press it out on parchment paper over a pan and brush that with olive oil. I cooked it for nearly 40-45 min. to get it like crust. I did flip it over about 25 min. in. 

For the sauce I used a 8 oz can of tomato sauce and half of a small can of tomato paste along with a few dashes of oregano, Italian seasoning a pinch of salt and garlic powder to taste. 
Once crust is ready add sauce, about 2 ounces of cheese of your choice and toppings (I did fresh Spinach and a all white cheese mix), put your pizza back in oven for about 10 min. and enjoy!

Now if you don’t get the 10 min. cooked box of Quinoa, you will have to soak the regular for 8 hours in an inch of water in refrigerator and drain. The store I went to only had the tri-color in a box so I had to alter the original recipe. 😉



Enjoy!
