Quinoa pizza base

No comments

Pizza is the best thing in the history of everything. Fact. But that doesn’t mean it has to be an unhealthy option in your dietary regime. This quinoa (pronounced keen-wah, not queen-oh) pizza base is a peach and is extremely easy to create. Note that the quinoa needs soaking overnight, so plan ahead.

Quinoa pizza base ingredients

  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chilli powder or mixed herbs (optional – we found that on its own, the quinoa base can be a little bland)

Make it happen

  1. Rinse the quinoa thoroughly and then place in a bowl to soak overnight. Fill the bowl with water until it is about 1 cm above the top of the quinoa.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C.
  3. Drain the quinoa and rinse thoroughly.
  4. Place the quinoa, the water, the baking powder, and the chilli into a food processor. Process until consistent.
  5. Line a pizza pan (or a baking tray will work too) with baking paper. Smear the olive oil onto the baking paper completely covering it.
  6. Pour the quinoa mix into the pizza tray and smooth out evenly. Thinner bases work best.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Flip over and add your preferred toppings.
  9. Bake for another 10 minutes or until your toppings have cooked through.

The quinoa pizza base is a really simple addition to include in your recipe cycle. Experiment with a few herbs and spices to get the taste right, but it’s certainly a winner if you are partial to the greatest food type ever created.
