Quinoa Flour Pizza Recipe

It's no secret that pizza is one of my favorite foods. Not only have I shared a bunch of pizza crust recipes on the blog before, but if you're following me on YouTube then you've probably seen them in a lot of my vlogs.

I can actually credit my 5-ingredient pizza crust for helping me launch this business. It was the first post of mine that really went “viral” and it's been a fan favorite ever since. And honestly? It's probably the recipe that I make most often.

The thing that's not so great? You have to soak your quinoa for a few hours. So I decided to create a new quinoa pizza recipe that uses quinoa flour as the base. It comes together much quicker, has an awesome texture and is just as healthy!

How to make Pizza with Quinoa Flour

The Benefit of Using Quinoa Flour

Last week I shared a post all about how to use quinoa flour and talked about why I love it so much. There are so many ways that you can use it, but I especially like it for pizza.

Quinoa flour is great for pizza because of its protein content. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and helps provide structure to baked goods, so when we're making something gluten-free, it can be really helpful to use high protein flours.

This recipe doesn't have the same pull and stretch that a gluten-based dough would but after it's baked it's nice and sturdy. It can hold up to all your favorite toppings, which to me, is really the test!

Our New Favorite Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

I have loved all the pizza crusts I've shared on the blog so far, but this might just be my new favorite. It's only 5 ingredients, it's naturally vegan (and gluten-free), it's high protein and it's super simple to make.

It's also yeast-free, oil-free and nut-free which makes it great for so many diet types.

Best of all…it's actually healthy. Which means pizza whenever you want!

I'm all about making the traditionally unhealthy foods healthy so that even when you're following a specific diet you can still enjoy the foods you love. This is the ultimate example. Pizza all the time = winning in my book!

How to Top Your Quinoa Flour Pizza

It's all about the toppings for me and I like things full. Like I want to fit on as much as I possibly can!

I'll share what's on top of this quinoa flour pizza, but I also want to give you some other ideas in case you need a little inspo.

Here are some of my favorite vegan pizza toppings:

  • Tomato sauce, broccoli, leeks & artichokes (the I used for one!)
  • Tomato sauce, sauteed kale, caramelized onions & mushrooms
  • BBQ sauce, tomatoes, shallots &chickpeas
  • Hummus, sliced tomato & sliced zucchini
  • Lentil bolognese & vegan cheese
  • Homemade pesto, asparagus, artichokes & arugula

But really, the possibilities are endless! Basically just choose your sauce, then your toppings and finish it up with some vegan cheese and you're good.

I mean the truth of it is…you can never go wrong with PIZZA!
