Gluten-Free Quinoa Pizza Crust

Makes one personal pizza.


  • 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed, soaked 8 hours or overnight, drained, rinsed again
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp water
  • cooking spray

Topping ideas

  • Arugula pesto
  • Fried eggplant
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Goat cheese


Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat the parchment paper with oil spray or brush it on yourself

Add the soaked and rinsed quinoa, baking powder, salt, and water to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the batter onto the lined baking sheet and spread out evenly using a rubber spatula.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Removed and flip the crust over and bake for another 3 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown.

Add toppings and bake until heated through and cheese is melted, about 6 minutes.
