Ingredients

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Prepare the pizza crust according to the instructions. Start by thoroughly rinsing the quinoa, then adding it to a blender with the remaining ingredients, and blending it on high until smooth and creamy.
  • 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.
  • While baking the second time, preheat a skillet over medium heat and gently saute the broccoli and mushrooms until the mushrooms are tender, but the broccoli is still a bit crunchy, about 5 minutes. Remove and let cool until pizza is done baking.
  • Remove crust from the oven and top with sauce, cheese and veggies. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until cheese has melted and broccoli is starting 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!
