Less Than 10 ingredient Gluten-Free Quinoa Crust

Who doesn’t love pizza? I could definitely eat it for the rest of my life if I had no choice. There are so many toppings and combinations to choose from when creating a pizza that I doubt I could ever get bored. 

Making pizza sounds very strenuous and frankly boring when I could easily call up my Papa Johns and get an easy and delicious pizza made for me. However sometimes, eating healthy is essential and this pizza is definitely on the healthier side. 

This definitely isn’t a fluffy and thick crust but more on the thin side but still has a lot of depth to it. It is perfect to prep in the morning to make for dinner or overnight and make breakfast pizzas (that sounds so good right now!)

I remember when something said it was gluten free there wasn’t anything remotely attractive about it to me. Now, I enjoy gluten free treats! Since I do not have celiac disease I don’t avoid any gluten products, however sometimes it just makes me feel lighter when I do. 

It’s also the perfect thing to make if you are gluten free!

Top this pizza with vegan cheese or just veggies! Another fun idea is adding a base of BBQ sauce and adding some Vegan cheese & Vegan chicken! OMG. I need to go make that right now!

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you ever make any of my recipes, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @Plantbasedjane so I can see!
