Tips for making Vegan Quinoa Flatbread Pizza Crust recipe:

  • Soaking the quinoa overnight produces the best results, but you can soak the quinoa for a minimum of 3 hours in a pinch so long as you have a good quality high-speed blender or food processor.

  • If you desire, you can omit the garlic and/or add any combinations of spices you would like.

  • Flipping the pizza crust after 15 minutes is imperative for the best texture and thoroughly cooked results.

  • You can enjoy this gluten-free flatbread pizza crust both hot or cold.

  • Store the cooked crust in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Re-heat in a 375 F oven until the crust and toppings are warmed throughout.

  • You can replace standard white quinoa with red quinoa, but please note that it will require at least 8 hours of soaking time for best results.

  • This crust tastes great with a variety of toppings! We like it served warm with vegan pesto or served cold with beet hummus.

Quinoa Flatbread Pizza Crust (Gluten-Free, Vegan)
An easy and delicious 5-ingredient, high-protein, high-fiber gluten-free vegan quinoa pizza crust!
Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup quinoa, uncooked & soaked overnight
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • olive oil
Instructions
The night before preparing this pizza, measure out your uncooked quinoa, place in a bowl, cover with water, cover bowl & let soak overnight.The next day the quinoa should have absorbed most of the water.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, drizzle olive oil on parchment, set aside.In a food processor, combine quinoa, water, garlic, baking powder & salt. Blend until a smooth batter is formed.Pour batter onto your oiled parchment paper. Using your hands or a spatula, spread and shape your batter until about 1/2" thick (I like to form mine into an oval shape).Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven. Carefully flip the crust over, and if you need to, flip onto a new sheet of oiled parchment paper.Top your pizza with your choice of ingredients* & return to the oven. Bake for 10 more minutes & then turn on the broiler for 2-4 minutes, or until crust is desired golden bubbling crispiness.*Toppings as shown: drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle of dried basil & garlic powder, shredded parmesan, roasted mini sweet bell peppers, diced red onion, and a sprinkle of parsley.Enjoy!
