Easy Satisfying Gluten Free Quinoa Pizza Crust

Easy Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Gluten free and grain free pizza crust that tastes delicious!

Pizza was hands down one of my favorite foods before my Celiac diagnosis. I loved it all thin crust, white sauce, Chicago deep dish, topped Hawaiian style, and any other way I could think up. I had never made a pizza pre-diagnosis. I must have tried every gluten free pizza crust recipe on the internet. I tried crusts made of zucchini, crusts made of cream cheese, crusts made with complicated flour concoctions, and this is what I came up with when none of them tasted quite right to me. It uses my favorite toy, Quinoa. This is one of many quinoa recipes I will post. It is incredibly simple to make and very satisfying.

If thin crust is not what you are looking for try our Grain and Gluten Free Thick Crust Pizza.

      I would say 8 generous slices. I usually make it into the mini pizza crusts and do a top your own pizza night. It makes 6 to 8 mini pizzas.

        Thanks! When you do the individual pizzas, what do you cook them in?? I would love to make them this way. Do you think it would work to make the pizzas and then freeze the extra crusts to use later?

          I cooked mine in little round pyrex containers. They measure about 3.5 inches across. I have not tried freezing these yet but would love to hear how it works out for you. I would try freezing a batch myself but am on vacation camping until Monday.
