Quinoa Pizza Crust

Heres a great recipe by Ella
Makes one 8 inch pizza:


3/4 of a cup of quinoa (soaked for about eight hours)
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons of mixed herbs, I used oregano and basil
A sprinkling of chili flakes or chili sauce
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp chickpea flour

Optional toppings:
Tomato paste
Spinach leaves
Mushrooms finely chopped
Feta cubes

Soak the quinoa overnight or for about eight hours in water . The best way to do this is put the quinoa in a larger bowl and cover it in water, make sure that it’s covered by a few cm’s. Then leave this to one side.

Once you’re ready to make the pizza, pre-heat the oven to 190C. Then drain any water left in the quinoa bowl, before putting the quinoa into a food processor with the apple cider vinegar, herb, chilli flakes and chickpea flour. Blend for a few minutes until a smooth dough forms.

Line the bottom of a pizza dish with baking paper, then bake for about 15 minutes, until the base is firm.

Remove from oven and add your topping, place back into the oven few minutes then enjoy!
