Quinoa Pizza Crust

So, a Facebook friend posted this video (below) for Quinoa pizza crust from Cooking Light Magazine. I thought it was a great idea, but of course, tweaked it for my own palate! It was crunchy, flavorful, and a perfect healthy, gluten free, delicious vessel for my pizza toppings.
Here is my recipe, and the Cooking Light recipe video below.


3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 clove of garlic chopped, or 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. salt
cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Place the quinoa in a small bowl and cover it with water. Let the quinoa soak overnight, or for at least 8 hours.
3. Drain and thoroughly rinse the quinoa (this will prevent any bitterness in the crust).
4. Place the quinoa, water baking powder, garlic, basil, and salt in a food processor (I used a Vitamix blender).
5. Process until a smooth batter is formed, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the food processor as necessary.
6. Line an 8 or 9-inch round cake pan with parchment paper. (It may help to spray the pan with cooking spray first, so that the parchment sticks), and then spray the parchment paper with cooking spray.
7. Pour the batter into the pan and smooth with a rubber spatula.
8. Bake the crust for 15 minutes at 425.
9. Remove the parchment paper from under the crust. Flip the crust over and return to the oven for 5-10 more minutes, or until golden and the edges are crispy.
10. Remove from the oven and add sauce, cheese, and topings of your choice. Return to oven until cheese is melted.


  • When spreading batter, spread in thin even layer. 
  • Cook well, or center will be mushy.
