With a crust made from cauliflower and quinoa, this pizza is pretty different from the usual kind of pizzas – packed with proteins from the quinoa and healthy nutrients from the cauliflower makes it super healthy!
I find that it doesn’t need much topping or it would overpower the awesome flavours of the crust, however you can add anything you like on top of this tasty pizza. 😉
- 1 cup quinoa, cooked (1/2 cup uncooked)
- 1/4 cup chia seeds + 3/4 cup water
- ½ cauliflower head
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsk peppar
- 4 tbsp flour (or gluten free flour)
- Suggestions for topping: pizza sauce, mushrooms, red onion, tomatoes and basil.
- Pre heat the oven to 430F/220°. Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package.
- Mix chia seeds and water in a bowl and set aside for 10 minutes.
- Chop the cauliflower into smaller pieces. Transfer to a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is finely chopped. Place in a towel and squeeze out as much water as you can.
- Place the cauliflower in a bowl and mix with quinoa, flour and the chia mixture. Add garlic, oregano, salt and pepper and combine well.
- Press out the dough to a round pizza shape on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or on a pizza tray). Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until the edges start to get golden and the middle is firm. Top with pizza sauce and vegetables and bake for another 15–20 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Serve with fresh basil!
