Ingredients

Instructions

  • Soak the quinoa in water, covering it by at least 1", for 6 - 8 hours.
  • Once you're ready to make the crust, preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 9" cake pan with parchment paper and drizzle one tablespoon of oil in the center. Spread around with your hands until evenly coated and set pan aside.
  • Thoroughly rinse quinoa, then add to a blender. Add the 1/4 cup of water, baking powder, salt and remaining olive oil, and blend on high until smooth and creamy. This should resemble a thick pancake batter.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes. Remove, flip and return to oven baking for another 10 - 15 minutes until browned and edges are crispy.
  • Top with sauce, cheese and any other toppings you'd like and bake for 12 - 15 minutes until cheese has melted and started to brown.
  • Remove, let cool for a few minutes in the pan, transfer cutting board and slice.
  • Garnish with herbs, pepper flakes, grated cheese, etc., and serve immediately!
