Quinoa Pizza


Try this tasty alternative to pizza. Quinoa is gluten free and high in protein.


Ingredients:


170g (dry weight) uncooked quinoa

3tsp olive oil, divided (plus extra for brushing, if using)

235ml water

2 large eggs

1 ½ tsp garlic salt

½ tsp dried oregano

½ tsp dried basil

½ tsp baking powder

35g grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese


Method:


  • Place the uncooked quinoa in a sieve and rinse under water for about a minute until the water runs clear. Shake off as much excess liquid as possible.

  • Add the rinsed quinoa and 2 tsp olive oil to a medium pan and cook on a medium heat for 6-7 mins to allow the excess moisture to evaporate and the quinoa to start to gently toast and develop a richer flavour.

  • Add the measured water to the toasted quinoa. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cover then cook the quinoa for about 15 min, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and turn the heat to low. Cook for a further 5 more mins, stirring occasionally to evaporate the excess moisture. Transfer the cooked quinoa to a large bowl and let it cool for at least 10 mins.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 220C.

  • Line a baking sheet with greaseproof/ baking paper and spray with cooking spray or lightly brush with olive oil to prevent it sticking.

  • In a small bowl, add the eggs, 1 tsp olive oil, garlic salt, oregano, basil and baking powder. Whisk until well combined.

  • Add the cheese to the quinoa. Stir to combine then tip in the egg mixture. Stir until well combined.

  • Spread the quinoa dough into a thin, even layer (about 6-7mm) on the paper.

  • Bake for 18-20 mins until the edges begin to brown.

  • Remove from the oven and top with your favourite pizza toppings. Pop back into the oven for 5-10 mins until the cheese (if using) begins to melt.

Stand for 5 mins before slicing.
