Outrageously Easy Quinoa Pizza Crust recipe that takes only 5 minutes of prep time, yes 5 minutes. The healthy gluten-free pizza crust has just the right amount of crispness and will hold several toppings without being soggy.

This vegan, gluten-free quinoa pizza crust makes a wonderful bread substitute. I like to add fresh toppings such as avocado, pesto, fresh tomatoes and chives for that perfect mouthwatering healthy sandwich.

What is quinoa?

Quinoa is a flowering plant in the amaranth family. This tiny edible seed comes in various colours, including white, black, red, and yellow. The nutrient-rich naturally gluten-free seeds are packed with protein, vital dietary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. The plant has been cultivated for about 5000 years and is indigenous to the Andean region of South America, specifically Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, and Peru.

      Hi, Is there a substitute for Psyllium husk? I don’t have on hand but have Xanthan gum. Thanks

      • Kristina March 7, 2022

        Gagan, psyllium husk is very different from Xanthan gum. However you can try ground flaxseed or ground chia seed.
