let’s celebrate friday eve with Three Ingredient Healthy Quinoa Pizza Crust!! i have been making a version of quinoa pizza crust since the early days of upbeetandkaleingit, think circa 2016.
people found it delicious then and i know y’all will find it delicious now.
the coolest part about Three Ingredient Healthy Quinoa Pizza Crust is that it truly is just made from QUINOA. not even quinoa flour.
you soak the quinoa in hot water for about 30-45 minutes (can soak longer) and then add it to a food processor with veggie broth and seasoning.
by the way, the quinoa is NOT cooked beforehand, just soaked in hot water.
after you blend the quinoa for about a couple of minutes, it becomes a paste and will look a little funky! that’s exactly what it should look like though!
then, you can pour the mixture into a parchment lined or non stick baking pan. i recommend a 9 x 13.
the crust bakes twice and the first time around, 12 minutes. then, the crust can be removed and the toppings should be added!
you can absolutely get creative but i just went with the classics-marinara, vegan mozzarella, tomatoes and basil.
the pizza will bake another 15 minutes with the toppings and then it’s done.
note this is a VERY dense pizza crust since it’s simply quinoa, but i adore the texture. the denser the better haha.
it’s packed with nutrients, soft, and a little bit chewy. you truly will love it!
while i used more than one seasoning, i am still counting various ones as one ingredient hah! you don’t have to add seasoning, but it’s a nice addition of more flavor.
of course the marinara should pack some garlicky goodness, but i like to add onion powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and sea salt to the crust.
