Quinoa As A Pizza Topping… Genius (Thanks Chef Phil)

IMG_9669

When visiting Richmond VA…Chef Phil made me a pizza that had cooked quinoa as a topping and it was genius.  The quinoa got crispy on top.  I buy my pizza shells from Sami’s Bakery in Tampa Fl.  I buy them online… several at a time and just pop them in the freezer until ready to use.  They are made of millet and flax and no added oil!  They get so crispy… and  you can add any of your favorite toppings.  In the picture I topped this pizza with:

Roasted tomatoes

Steamed kale

Red bell pepper

Corn

Black beans

Onions

I used taco sauce but marinara would have been great too… and of course I topped it with cooked quinoa!

Baked at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes it was crunchy and delicious!

You can use your favorite pizza dough/shell and your favorite sauce and toppings and try quinoa for that added crunch!  You too will get a thumbs up!
