Quinoa Lovers Pizza Crust

I really like quick and easy recipes.  Mainly because I have these two little humans to take care of everyday…and because I spend way too much time in my kitchen cooking or doing dishes.

Did I tell you I don’t have a dishwasher?

I am a happy woman when I can dish out a healthy meal in less than 30 minutes. Very happy!
 
This pizza crust is for quinoa lovers only. Quinoa has a unique flavor that turns off some people (like my husband). I was going to make quinoa pancakes for dinner, but then I wanted pizza. So I changed my pancake recipe to make it work as a pizza crust.

  • 1cup soaked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil (melted)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Blend up all the ingredients until smooth. You can use a blender of food processor to do this.

*To make quinoa sprouts, simply soak your quinoa in water for 6-8 hours. The quinoa will sprout in this time making it more nutritious and digestible. Drain and rinse your sprouts before using in this recipe. 

What is your favorite go-to easy dinner?

    Should the quinoa soak in the frig or on the counter? Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    Could you make this using the Quinoa Flakes? Could I just skip the soaking and just blend it with the other ingredients?

    I tried this recipe and it worked really well. I used a stone and it didn’t stick at all.

    Did you put the dough/batter right on the pizza stone, or did you use cornmeal? I’m worried it’s just going to seal itself to the stone…

      Jenn » Yes, but I baked in on a cookie sheet not a stone. If your worried you could bake it on a parchment lined cookies sheet.

    I have a question, everywhere else I read that quinoa takes longer to sprout. Do you have big sprouts on yours by the end of the day?

    Found you on Pinterest! Question – Any idea how many mini-pizzas this batch would make? (If I did all minis instead of a large one)

    Hi there. This might be a stupid question but do you cook the quinoa before soaking it? The recipe sounds great otherwise!!

      Nope! Just blend up the raw sprouted quinoa! 🙂

    I love this idea! This is much easier that sprouting quinoa, dehydrating it, and grinding it into flour. I can’t wait to try this when I’m done with GAPS.

      I really love to use wet sprouts over sprouted flour. Sprouted flour is great to have on hand for some things, but using wet sprouts is a lot easier! Hope you enjoy this recipe when your able to try it :).

    Can you pick this up and eat it like a regular pizza?

    Reply
    • The Coconut Mama August 30, 2012, 1:47 pm

      Yes :). Make sure the crust is crispy on the bottom and you can pick it up just fine. I made a large pizza and a few mini pizzas for my daughter. The mini pizzas were a little easier to pick up compared to the slices from the normal size pizza I made.
