INGREDIENTS

For the quinoa crust:

• 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
• 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
• 6 tablespoons water
• 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
• 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
• 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
• Salt and pepper to taste

For the pizza toppings:

• 1/4 cup tomato sauce or marinara sauce
• 1 cup mixed vegetables (bell peppers, mushrooms, red onions, cherry tomatoes, etc.)
• 1/4 cup sliced black olives
• 1/4 cup dairy-free cheese (optional)
• Fresh basil leaves for garnish

HOW TO MAKE IT

1) Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2) In a small bowl, combine the ground flaxseed and water. Let it sit for 5 minutes to thicken.

3) In a food processor, add the rinsed quinoa, flaxseed mixture, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Process until a smooth batter forms.

4) Pour the batter onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it into a round shape, about 1/4 inch thick.

5) Bake the quinoa crust in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and crispy.

6) Remove the crust from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

7) Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the crust, leaving a small border around the edges.

8) Top with the mixed vegetables, sliced black olives, and dairy-free cheese, if using.

9) Return the pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the vegetables are cooked to your liking.

10) Remove the pizza from the oven and garnish with fresh basil leaves.

11) Slice and serve hot.

Bon appétit!
