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.

Yield: 1 pizza
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Additional Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 30 minutes

An easy, healthy and delicious 5-ingredient, high-protein, high-fiber, dairy-free, gluten-free vegan quinoa flatbread pizza crust recipe!

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

  1. The night before preparing this pizza, measure out your uncooked quinoa, place in a bowl, cover with water, cover bowl & let soak overnight.
  2. The next day the quinoa should have absorbed most of the water. Rinse & drain the soaked quinoa & set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, drizzle olive oil on parchment, set aside.
  4. In a food processor, combine quinoa, water, garlic, baking powder & salt. Blend until a smooth batter is formed.
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. Top your pizza with your choice of ingredients* & return to the oven.
  8. Bake for 10 more minutes & then turn on the broiler for 2-4 minutes, or until crust is desired golden bubbling crispiness.
  9. Enjoy!

Notes

*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.
