Makes 2-4 servings

Ingredients

  • Base
  • 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

Topping

Your favourite pizza toppings + cheese (if using)

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. Mixture can be frozen at this point. Defrost thoroughly before moving to next step

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
