We have some great, tasty recipes for our ladies on the September Challenge! 2 Days to go……………..
Quinoa Pizza Crust
1/2 cup quinoa
2-1/2 cups water, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil or no-stick spray
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
Put the quinoa in a bowl or other container with 2 cups water and let soak for 4-8 hours.
Drain the quinoa, rinse and put in a blender or food processor. Add 1/4 cup water and process until the consistency of a thick pancake batter, adding more water if needed. Add seasoning and salt and mix.
Brush a 9inch baking tin with oil or use no-stick spray. Place in oven and turn it on to 180 deg to pre-heat. When oven is heated, carefully pour batter in to preheated pan and quickly spread around to an even thickness.
Bake for about 10 minutes, carefully flip and back for another 10 minutes until browned.
Remove from oven and add toppings, return to oven and bake for about another 5-7 minutes until heated.
Make sure you keep a healthy mind-set when deciding how to top this crust. And feel free to change up the seasonings in the crust to suit your tastes or to go along with your planned toppings.
This recipe would be a meal on it’s own for one or better yet, add a nice salad on the side and it will feed two.
