Ingredients
  

  • ¾ cup (4½ ounces) white quinoa
  • ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup water

Instructions
 

  • Soak the quinoa in 2 cups of water overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place a 12-inch circle of parchment paper in the center of a 14-inch round pizza tray and brush it with the olive oil.
  • Drain and rinse the quinoa and add it to the carafe of a blender along with the remaining ingredients. Blend at high speed until the batter is smooth and has a consistency similar to pancake batter.
  • Pour the batter into the center of the pizza tray and, using an offset spatula, spread it out evenly to the edge of the parchment paper.
  • Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Using an offset spatula, loosen the crust from the parchment paper and slide it onto a 14-inch round pizza screen. Bake for 5-10 minutes more or until the bottom of the crust is nicely browned.
  • Slide the pizza crust back onto the pizza tray and layer on toppings of your choice. Bake for another 5-7 minutes or until toppings are melted and/or heated through.
